New York, N.Y.




To be honest I don't know what to say about this city. Like with any big US cities I was a bit worried and the atmosphere in some places really was quite a bit strange. It is a city so full of contrasts, you can see beggars, some full of drugs and pain and you can visit wonderful places. I was fascinated by the ice skating scene in Central Park,


Times Square with it's big ToysRus also was impressive (the photo was taken close by)


and I enjoyed walking through Battery Park


and having a look at Madame Liberty from a Staten Island Ferry.




Unfortunately when we were there the New York Stock Exchange was closed for visitors.


I don't know if you can get in again now. The guards on duty didn't respond nicely to our request to have a look inside but having seen the construction site of the World Trade Center and the Peace on Earth sign on a building rather close by I can't really be angry with them.
