The eagle has landed

Well folks, we’ve arrived in New York! What an exciting city…

Yesterday we walked around the neighbourhood (hotel area on 45st street), had coffee in Bryant Park and went to see the Public Library. The 7.2 million books there put us in awe. Today we explored the finacial district – and Ground Zero of course – and strolled around Soho. It’s wonderful but tiring to spend time in this vibrant metropolitan.

As for our hotel, I think we got a decent deal. The Milford Plaza assigned a corner room on the 27th floor to us. This gives us a wonderful view over upper 8th street and west Manhattan. The honking of cars down on the roads and the sirens of police cars and ambulance, however, reminded us during the night that we’re in New York and not in Tokyo 😉
