My first time in New York
17.06.2015 16 °C
I waited long before my first trip to New York. This is not envy that was missing in me, but I was not pressed. I knew that "the city that never sleeps" please me, it was obvious. I like to keep dreams in a corner of my head, in front of a world map fantasize about all the places where I have never gone. The world is so vast to go. I found Hong Kong, Shanghai or Toronto before New York. The skylines bristling with skyscrapers have always fascinated me. That of Manhattan, it seems to have always known; so view and re-view TV, pictures or the movies. Sung by Frank Sinatra, U2 or Jay Z, Phone, Renaud and Claude Nougaro, New York, is not unknown even for those who visit for the first time.
My first view of the skyscrapers of Manhattan, it was through the fences of the Williamsburg Bridge. It's very moving to see for the first time the Empire State Building or the Freedom Tower (or 1 WTC), which has now replaced the void left by the twin towers of World Trade Center. Stopover in the "Big Apple" for three days between Rio de Janeiro and Paris, I had taken up residence in Williamsburg, a very good area to find a rental in New York. Cheaper than Manhattan, but very close and easily accessible on foot or by metro. Painted pink and decorated by street artists, the Williamsburg Bridge is a fine introduction to discover New York.
Very soon we find ourselves on Wall Street, a little world headquarters of finance. So re-view and view photos on TV or in the movies that it seems to have always known too.
There I discovered the food trucks in New York. For 3 or 4 dollars, you can have a fresh fruit juice and customized, "health drink", "immune boost" or "cleansing tonic" ... I really flashed on food trucks in New York. Kebabs, pizzas, yagourts, hot dogs, ice cream, coffees ... We find all kinds and it is a pleasure to eat in the street in New York!
