This is my final report from this trip to the US of A. It was day 7 and 8 in NYC, Thursday March 14th - Friday March 15th.
Travel log bullet points:
* On Thursday, I followed the advice from my host Francisco and went to Harlem and Washington Heights. Great weather finally, about +17C and sunny!
* I walked north on Amsterdam Ave from the apartment in the 100s and passed by Columbia University a second time this week.
* Turned right on Harlem's "Main Street", 125th St. Walked and photographed my way over to the East side at 3rd Ave.
* Then I turned 180 degrees and walked almost all the way back.
* Stopped at a Shake Shack for a burger and a strawberry milkshake for lunch as recommended by fellow Progressive, Michael Kennedy. Now, I can also recommend this chain, the food was really great!
* Got the subway up to 168th St in Washington Heights and walked further north to 181st St along Broadway. Walked a crosstown block or two east and found an avenue with an interesting name: St Nicholas Ave! My kind of street, so I followed it south around 10 blocks before making another 180 degree turn and got as far as 191st St before finishing off the day with some shooting in Times Square.
* Friday was travel day, but my plane was at 7 pm. So, after I finished packing my bags, I did a short streeting trip toGrand Central Station and walked from there to the United Nations building. Just a couple of hours.
* Went out to Newark airport early to avoid stress. That part of the trip went smoothly, although the +22C was a bit wasted when hauling lots of luggage, it just made me sweat more...
* Had a meal at the SAS lounge and wrote the previous blog and edited the photos for this one.
* We sat 4 hours in the plane before taking off which resulted in me missing my connecting flight. Got rebooked and that flight was delayed too. But I did get home safe and sound about 6 hours later than planned.
So, this is the end of the travel blog for this time! Thanks to anyone and everyone who had the patience to look at my photos and read my scribblings!
