My name is Ana and I am from Spain. I love traveling overseas, especially in the U.S. and in Europe (London, Roma…). When I have long week-ends, I try to go away with some friends. I stayed 5 days in NYC with 4 friends for vacations at the end of June 2006, but it wasn’t my first time here.
We visited the MoMA, the Lincoln Center, Pier 18, we took the ferry to go to long Island and we went to Harlem, Soho, Tribeca, Brooklyn, the Rockefeller Center and many other places. Of course, we also did a lot of shopping! We also could see the Gay Parade during our stay and saw rap dancers in Central Park. We really liked it… Unfortunately, we couldn’t go to any Broadway show but if I had had enough time, I would have seen Cats or Mama Mia. I heard so much about these shows!
We had dinner in a Coffee Shop in Union Square, at a very nice French restaurant called Felix that is located on West Broadway. But I would recommend above all to eat at the Tribeca Grill restaurant, which is a very nice place where the food was excellent and the staff was very helpful, and at Pier 18 where the atmosphere is very pleasant.
We rented a car to go to Washington and it was really worth it for the week end.
We didn’t have any bad experience here, only good ones: people were very nice and helpful, which made our stay very pleasant, and we discovered a new culture that is very different from the Spanish one.
