The Big Apple

August 18th, 2011 by

Set off early this morning, we had to drop our car off at LaGuardia airport by 1pm. The drive leaving Cape Code was far better than the torrential rain when we arrived, and despite the odd traffic jam and bridge tolls we made the drop off with a minute to spare.

Manhattan did not disappoint, it is still has the busiest streets I have ever seen with everyone jostling for a bit of space, you can see where the concept of American football came from every time you cross a road and you have to fight your way through the oncoming pedestrians.

Someone at Richard’s work had recommended the burgers at the Shake Shack on Madison Ave and Broadway, so we headed there for lunch. It was agreed they were the best and worth the 45 minute ‘line’.

We then walked up Broadway to Times Square and out to the Hudson river, don’t remember everything being quite so walkable, but we managed it back to the Empire State Building in time for sunset and hopefully have some great photos.

    if you’re ever over there again on business, let me know, I can fly down cheap to meet up for a night.
