New York City is so big that you have different ways of exploring it. We ticked off walking, taking the double deck bus, the subway, the taxi, and the observation deck of the Empire State building (see post here). So for our fifth day, we took the ferry to see Ms. Liberty!
See? Even from the view in the ferry, NYC looks awesome.
The Statue of Liberty is another famous icon in NYC. Ms. Liberty has been “enlightening the world” since 28 October 1886 when the French gave this National Monument as a gift of friendship to the United States. It is recognised as an icon of freedom and democracy.
Remember the kebabs I was talking about in my previous post? Yep, here they are! They’re that huge and worth trying!
Our next stop was at Central Park. It is considered as one of the oldest parks in the city, but look how beautiful it still looks! The park opened in 1857. The park is perfect for a picnic, bike, jog or a romantic stroll in spring or autumn. Hop on a horse carriage, sunbathe, nap under a tree? This is a people’s park with lots of recreational activities in store for you.
To wrap up our last night in NYC, we couldn’t miss our chance of watching a broadway there; in which I have mentioned in my previous post that I have another mission in my bucket list to accomplish. We were fortunate to watch Rocky, based from the 1976 award winning film. I must commend on their epic set and choreography! The technical crew really worked their magic in maximising everything in such a limited space. It was very clever! At first I wondered why in most ads of this broadway scattered around NYC it did not boast of the awards it garnered like most others’ such as Wicked, Matilda and Mamma Mia. I just found out that this just premiered last March 2014!! This broadway deserves all the Tony’s it could get. Worth the splurge!
I really enjoyed the concrete jungle. I can’t wait to come back. There’s so much to do and life there is an adventure everyday. ‘Til next time, NYC!
