Brooklyn felt more ‘New York’ to me, busier, ruder, and grittier.
I dragged everyone to see the building where ‘Brooklyn 99’ TV show is filmed from the outside. It was 27 degrees.
I was happy now.
Onward to Brooklyn Bridge! Through Wall Street.
Got a bit caught up with the eclipse crowd.
We stopped to try and see the eclipse for ourselves, and I indulged in food out of a van. If it’s good enough for the New Yorkers…
Burrito. My favourite.
Obviously can’t see the eclipse in the photo, but it’s there.
Shopping happened. I’m not a fan myself, and there’s nothing interesting to take photos of. So I got a milkshake from a little chocolate shop.
Back to some sight seeing. Empire State was up next!
New York public library next, I geeked out a little here as the film ‘Ghostbusters’ used this building!
Behind the library, in Bryant Park, an outdoor film screening was taking place. I had wanted to do one of these, until I saw the crowd at this one!
Back through Times Square.
Peter had to take a pic of his favourite eatery…
And then we found Gray’s Papaya, as featured in ‘Fools Rush In’. It’s cheap and good for New York. $2.50 for a hot dog.
That’s what over ten miles of walking around New York looks like.
