This first post will be about all our wanderings in NY during the day. The city transforms at night, but those photos will come in the next post!
Woooow New York is so ALIVE! In the mornings we would get up early and join the morning bustle of thousands of people getting to work. We walked a lot in NY, and loved to wander around the streets and see the different neighborhoods. Our hotel had an awesome view on the city: The first day we did an “architecture walk” to discover all the amazing buildings in Manhattan.
Only 10.000 more windows to go:
We also went to the Metropolitan museum of Art which we seriously underestimated in size…. I knew it was a big museum but holy shit, it is an endless maze of rooms and chambers filled with ancient up until modern art. There was one room with an entire Egyptian temple in it! Needless to say we were exhausted after this trip :)
Both the Guggenheim and the Met are located near or in Central Park. I loved it! It such a nice, green oasis in the middle of the city. You feel like you’re in a forest yet there are skyscrapers everywhere. I did quite some drawing and painting there!
One very interesting museum we went to was the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space museum, where we went into a submarine, and walked across an aircraft carrier to see a spaceshuttle and endless rows of warplanes!
And ofcourse a hotdog from the local hotdog stand:(finally a picture with Ward in it XD)
But wait untill you see the next post, New York … at night!!
