Walk walk walk
We have now finally moved to the big city that we all have dreamt about! There is so much to do and so little time, so yesterday me and Frida decided to talk a long walk almost thru entire Manhattan.
We started in our area, 108th and Broadway, upper west side, which is a beautiful area with a lot of food markets, restaurants, lovely buildings and cozy coffee shops. Only 10 minutes away you can walk into Central Park. Central Park this time a year is amazing, the leaves are still on the trees and are all yellow, red and orange! We walked all the way thru the Park, and stepped by some of the mandatory things you need to se.
- The boathouse. Most of us girls knows this place from Sex and the City. It’s a cozy restaurant overlooking one of the smaller lakes, quit pricey thou. Other than that you can also rent a boat and take a romantic paddle.
- Alice in Wonderland statue. East side at 75th St, enter at Fifth Ave and 76th St (right next to the boathouse). Next to the statue theirs a small pond where you can rent a small motorizing sailing boat that you can drive from the side.
- The Great Lawn Softball Field is great in the warmer months when there are games on. But this time a year it’s good to just pass by and watch people.
- The bow bridge
- Horse carriage
- Walk around the big lake
- Listen to all the talented people performing in Central Park
This is just a handful of all the thing you can do in Central Park. But I recommend all the IIB students to take yourselves to central park right now! Before the leaves start to fall.
After Central Park we walked all the way down to Soho. It was a long walk but I promise its worth all the pain you’re going to feel in your feet. To just stroll around is the best way to discover New York, walk down district by district!
I wish all of my IIB students, and other fellow readers a great Halloween, be safe and take care!
