New York

New York …. Frank Sinatra , Alicia Keys here I come....

Start breaking the news… I’m leaving today.. I want to be a part of it New York New York …. Among all the states in the US, New York entices me the most. It has been my dreams to visit Manhattan for years. The yellow taxi cab, the Wall Street, Central Park it’s just luring. Hollywood movies did all the magic that brings me to it.

After the exciting trips in North Carolina, I headed to New York. My jet arrived in LaGuardia Airport; we took a shuttle bus to our hotel in Times Square. It was exhilarating even though it was confined in the shuttle bus. I can’t wait to get to Times Square where everyone talks about. After the shuttle bus drops few passengers at their designated hotel, we were finally arrived. The hotel looks fancy enough as it is in its website.

We dropped our luggage headed to Times Square. We explore the area in Times Square. Judging by the laziness of me to walk we opt for the New York Hop on Hop off Sightseeing bus.. It is the easiest way to explore New York, New York from the East to the West, North to the South!

Our first stop was at Battery Park. It was way crowded to board to the ferry to get across the Staten Island so I took a little picture of the lady then walk up north to the Wall Street, check out ground zero. We then walk to the Brooklyn Bridge athwart to Brooklyn.

Battery Park . Mesmerizing at the Statue of Liberty.

We then walk up North to the Wall Street. The Bull caught my attention.
There is one in Pavillion, KL as well.

Ground zero was at the back of the red pillars.
Since the site was under construction, we walk towards Brooklyn Bridge.

This photo was taken in the middle of the Bridge.

Opposite of the Bridge is the Manhattan Bridge.

View of Manhattan during the day.

Chinatown. I am not sure if its still early. It kinda seem quiet. It is certainly big!

We stop at Rockefeller. We didn't manage to go up toThe Rocks as we were kinda chasing the time. So we stop take a few snaps of photos at the ice skating ring. Then head to NBC, bought few souvenirs from the NBC store.

Magnolia Bakery! If you watch Sex and the City you might want to try their cup cakes.

Few shops ahead you will see the Radio City Hall.
Walking is the best way to learn and discover New York!
There are only selected photos in here.
After that I visited the Hudson River and went up North Side of New York to the Harlem.
If I am not mistaken I have almost reach the 207th Street.

Look at the crowd in Times Square

Even Sponge Bob wants to be there!

At night we cruise around again. The city which never sleeps is a must to check out!

Chrysler Building. although Empire State Building is the tallest building in NY.
I find Chrysler building is much more unique and beautiful to place in here.:P

New York at night while we were cruising. We were heading to Brooklyn.

As we finished our sightseeing and touring around in New York,
we roam freely around in Park Avenue and Madison Avenue then towards Times Square
the day after.
Yes it's time to walk and shop now.
We start with a morning walk in Central Park. Too bad the trees are still dried without green leaves.

On the way to Fifth Avenue,

I was there to check if I pad was out . Too bad was told will be out early in April. Darn it!

Time Warner..... the first place where my shopping starts.

I was here .

Women gets crazy in here. It was having sales !
Shopping in the Fashion district was truly outrageous.
From Coach to Victoria Secret. You name it!
I love to shop in New York!
I didn't get the chance to watch a play in New York. If only time permits.
I will definitely be back for more.

If a movie is scene is in New York, I would say almost all the landmarks of New York has been conquer by me.
Trump Towers, Bryant Park, The Plaza Hotel, Bergdorf Goodman,Schwarz, Saks.. you name it!
I have been there...
I love New York!!
