Top of the Rock
"I began to like New York, the racy, adventurous feel of it at night, and the satisfaction that the constant flicker of men and women and machines gives to the restless eye." F. Scott Fitzgerald

I, on the other hand, liked it immediately. Like London, it just has that energy that gets mind and body moving. I arrived the day after the tornado and the transport network was just getting back to normal. There were still a few problems though...

So, my highlights: Top of the Rock (the usual tourist thing of going to the top of something tall and checking the view - above); the UN HQ (below); Brooklyn Bridge (another US bridge about to collapse by the look of things); generally just hangin' out with old friends enjoying the atmosphere with a few beers (Brooklyn Lager was pretty good); and learning to play wiffle ball in the street at 3am (not the easiest whilst half cut...) All good!
