Security here was tight with sniffer dogs, guards, police and scans...... Surreal to visit a place i saw on tv news almost 12 years ago. Also visited Empire State Building views from 86th floor were amazing - steel, cement and yellow cabs for as far as the eye can see! We'll go to the Rockefeller centre tonight for a night view of NY.
It's a beautiful city and quite clean when you consider the millions and millions of people who live here. They say it might snow tomorrow - it must have been -10 on top of the Empire State Building .....I promise when I get home I will never whinge about being cold again!
Went for a look in Macy's, rode the subway again and did a night tour by bus over the Manhattan And Brooklyn Bridges. Did I say it was cold???
Hotel accommodation not too bad - clean and central. The downside is a rat that sounds like a rabies infected lunatic in the central heating unit. It must run under the floor between units and sounds like its going to burst through the metal casing. Keeps me awake so will ask for a different room in the morning.
Off to Museum of Natural Histories tomorrow.
