Up (USA Megatrip, 2013)NYC Towers >
First glimpse of Manhattan as the taxi from the airport brings us over Williamsburg Bridge
First stop: Katz’s Deli (of Harry Met Sally fame)
Killer corned beef sandwiches and excellent brown beer
My first Manhattan in Manhattan
View from Hotel on Rivington
This was a little NYC drama we witnessed. One old geezer just couldn’t get his car out of the way and the street sweeper lady was losing her rag big time. When she finally got going she took off at speed showering the street in debris rather than sucking it up and then ramming her way into moving traffic without touching her brakes. We didn’t notice the automotive ballet apparently going on behind us as we watched her speed off. When we turned back every car was back in place-drama over.
Tiles in subway station
Open-topped bus tour
The Ghostbusters building
There’s the Highline!
Last morning at Hotel on Rivington. We liked the shower with a view.
The traffic on the bridge never stopped
The bright blue building is incongruous in the LES but it is growing on us.
Kind of sad to leave the Hotel on Rivington but we are moving uptown, baby.
