Quick, call the cops. Theft in progress...
We (my brother and I) arrived yesterday noon. It's his first time. For me the third time in 3 years. The city stole my heart twice before and is doing it again. And I don't mind it at all
Yesterday we just chilled. Did not have to wait long at customs and the shuttle picked us up quickly. Reading all the bad reviews about suppershutlle, I feared the worst but I guess we were lucky. After checking in, we went to heartland brewery to have soms nacho's and chicken wings. Afterwards a quick stroll through hells kitchen and a pitstop at Daltons. After a few beers we went to BXL café. We already felt homesick after a few buds, so it was time to have some belgian beers again.
Today started with a visit to top of the rock just to give my brother that 'waw' feeling about NY. You can read hundreds of books and watch hundreds of clips on youtube but that does not even come close to the real feeling of overlooking this city. Afterwards brooklyn heights and brooklyn bridge. Now we are having some beers at Killarne rose before resuming our trip in lower manhatten. Still on the list today is Wall street, Battery Park, Staten Island ferry. Afterwards quick trip to the hotel, put on our Mets Jersey and of to city field.
God I love this city.
Now I'm going to finish my stella artois :)
If there is any interest, I'll gladly update this daily. Any tips about things that we should not miss are greatly appreciated. Seeing it is my brothers first time we are of course going to do al the well know stuff but I would like to throw in some hidden gems.
