Bites of the Big Apple

28 Mar

Some thoughts on my time in the Big Apple:

The Milford Plaza was a pretty good choice. Close to Times Square, in the middle of a host of theatres, and restaurants all around. It’s got old bones, but is being remade in a hipper, more modern image – a lot like Manhattan itself.

Just kind of skimmed the surface of the town, but really impressed with what I found. Had no idea about the seaport area, and the other historic bits, and was really impressed with Central Park. Lots of beautiful old buildings and some interesting new ones, and always a cool surprise to find a little park here or there. Tons of restaurants, though I suspect separating the wheat from the chaff is a big task.

Heard more German being spoken than Brooklyn-ese, but did overhear one “watch you don’t get hit by a bus” and that made my day.

Times Square, eh, it is what it is. But there’s so much more.
