(Travel Period : 28th June - 5th July 2009)

Brooklyn Bridge - connects Manhattan with New York's most populous borough, Brooklyn. The bridge is one of the most magnificent landmarks in New York. Brooklyn is one the 5 borough of New York City. Brooklyn contains hundreds of distinct neighborhoods, representing many of the major ethnic groups found within the New York City area. The borough is home to a large African-American community. Brooklyn is also home to many Russians, who are mainly concentrated in community of Brighton Beach and surrounding communities.
Ziegfeld Theatre - the most beautiful movie theatre in New York City. The original Ziegfeld (home of the Follies) is long gone, but its offspring remains. The Theater is on 54th street Manhattan with fountains gracing one side of the building. It's got red plush seats and walls, with massive chandeliers and cool old black and white photos. And yes, stadium seating, so you can see even you're way back because the screen is crazily HUGE. Only ONE screen and ONE movie on screen at ONE season. It is totally awesome, even if it makes me feel under-dressed. We went for Transformer, Danbo's favorite. We had a very great experience watching in for this very first time. I truly madly love this cinema. Once you walk in, you will get me!
Central Park - is one of those places that make New York such a great place to live. The huge park, 843 acres large (341 ha), is located in the center of Manhattan : nearer to Harlem City, along uptown Manhattan. Its design is an example for city parks around the world. The park boasts several lakes, theaters, ice rinks, fountains, tennis courts, baseball fields, many playgrounds and other facilities. Especially during the weekends, when cars are not allowed into the park, Central Park is a welcome oasis in this hectic city. Central Park is situated in Manhattan between 59th and 110th street and between Fifth and Eight Ave. Can you imagine that we walked from north Central Park to the south, more than 50 STREETS ! ! ! First time in my life time, walking for sooooooooooo long in such a superduper HUGE park! Again we are superduper truly madly in love with this gigantic park!
Oh yeah, we do not have a wide lens thus pictures are limited. I must say everything in New York is just TOOOOOO HUGE & BIG. Its not easy to take pictures hehe. But do enjoy the pictures in this post, in this blog!Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum - is one of the best-known museums in New York City and one of the 20th century's most important architectural landmarks. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the museum––which is often called simply The Guggenheim. Located near Central Park.
Oh yeah dinner time - Tad's Steaks Times Square.
My next up post will be National Day U.S.A
