I have more than 300 pictures of my New York trip from my digital camera. I’ll be sharing the first half, but I won’t be posting here every single image. Just most from the set. Hrhr~ Hopefully you get to enjoy these. May these inspire you to go see New York for yourself or maybe somehow make you feel as if you’re there. 🙂
On the first night after eating in a Pinoy restaurant and settling in the hotel, I looked for a nearby grocery or convenience store. Thank goodness that a block away of the hotel is The Food Emporium. There are so many things I want to try. I hate that I easily get fat.
Smaller than the regular-sized cans
Lotsa booze! I wish our grocery has lots of beer to choose from too.
Then pictures from the double-decker bus, Staten Island, and Ellis Island tours.
Must be fun to be there when it’s Black Friday.
The Liberty Bike is one of the coolest bikes I’ve ever seen. The bike is made of iron and copper.
New York from Staten Island:
What’s in Ellis Island?
Ellis Island is part of New York and New Jersey. It was an immigrants station for many years. Eventually, it became an Immigrants Museum. Wikipedia has a list of notable immigrants who passed by that station.
All that walking and touring under the hot sun was starting to wear me out, so I headed back to the hotel. Since I took the double-decker bus on the way back (as I mentioned before, you can hop off and hop on those tour buses), there were still stops along the way. Therefore, more sightseeing.
Name that bridge! You’ve not only heard of it, but I’m sure you’ve seen it in movies such as Cloverfield and I Am Legend.
This historical bridge (I hope you’re able to figure out what it is by now) has access not only for vehicles but also for pedestrians.
Quality of pictures hereon aren’t that good because my camera’s battery was getting low at that time.
Inside the cathedral is amazing.
Two more before I arrived in the hotel.
After an hour of two of rest, I met up with my (young) grandma and had dinner with her in Little Italy.
We had dinner at Mambo ‘taliano Ristorante & Piano Bar.
I’m not sure, but I think it’s La Bella Ferrara where we had coffee after dinner.
I just found out today that there’s an official website of New York’s Little Italy.
Whew! That’s a lot of photos, don’t you think? I’m not even done. ^^;;; Let’s take a break from New York for now. 😛
