American adventures on Amtrak- Part 2 New York

We’re just waiting for the porters to collect our bags, Keith’s nipped to the deli next door to get our sandwiches for our journey, as today we depart New York on our next leg of the journey… Travelling to Washington DC on our first Amtrak journey of the trip.

The last 2 days in New York have been a whirlwind of excitement. New York is entirely as you imagine it to be- tall, bright, loud, quirky and exciting. During our two days here I’ve seen more than I have in my entire life! We settled into a pattern of up at 7, coffee then out by 8, exploring on foot and back by 10pm.

 Our highlights:

Times Square at Night

 Trip down the Hudson River to see The Statue of Liberty and The Manhattan Skyline on The Circle Line

Walking through Central Park and seeing so many film locations!! 

New York Public Library – Ghostbusters/Sex In The City/Breakfast at Tiffanys etc  

Serendipity 3 (film Serendipity with John Cusack) and Bloomingdales and the biggest pizza in the world!


The High Line

Carrie’s Apartment (Sex and The City)

Washington Park Square 

Little Italy

China town (including a very bizarre encounter with a park full of Chinese musicians!)

Lobster Rolls at Ed’s Bar


Brooklyn Bridge

Wall Street

9/11 memorial

One World observatory/Freedom tower
