New York, Part III

August 3, 2012

While in New York we managed to avoid most tourist attractions. It was not an intention, it just sort of worked out that way. With a ‘tour guide’/host living in the city, it was easy to skip the things like the Statue of Liberty to enjoy the neighborhood hangouts. Sometimes, however, I like to force the people I visit to be a tourist in their own city. A day in Central Park, a long stroll through Manhattan, a walk along the High Line and sunset views of the city skyline from a pier in Williamsburg provided just that for Chris (and myself, Sarah, and Shannon).

New York was good to me for three days. Would I move there? Not anytime soon. I think maybe the West Coast is is the next destination…

What’s your favorite city to visit in the Continental US?

    My favorite city is New Orleans. Simply the best!

    I’ve now been to the States three times (well four if you include a 24hr stopover in 2004). My least favourite city is definitely LA (I made Mr M do all the driving there – the roads are too big for me!) and I have a tie for first place – San Francisco and Boston. The first time I was in Boston was 9/11 which made a weird introduction to the place, but we returned two years ago and I loved it then.
    Have you been to the UK? If so, where is your favourite place there?

      Edit to above I was in San Fran on 9/11. I must proof read what I type!

      I was actually raised in Surrey! Spent six and a half years living in Guildford (well Godalming, really). I was really young when we traveled, but I remember really liking Inverness, Scotland.

        That’s one place I’ve never been, despite it being on the same island that I live on. There is a lot more to see close to home, but I tell myself that I have plenty of time for all that when I have a family. When traveling far too many years ago in Bolivia I became friends with a girl who was from New Zealand who had only been to the island in New Zealand she lived on, yet she’d travelled all over the world…
