A Trip to New York

The End of a long day

Just a few photos from our trip to New York.

My nephew was visiting from England, so we took him to visit New York. We have friends who live in Brooklyn and visited there.

The drive up to New York is always harrowing, and trying to find a parking space in Brooklyn even more so.

We entered New York via the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, on the Brooklyn Queens Expressway, which does not live up to it's name, as in all the years I've ever travelled it, it is always in some state of repair, constantly.

The view of Manhattan is great from Brooklyn. We walked to the waterfront and along Water Street, which is being revived, it was all old shipping warehouse buildings. Here we had hot chocolate at Jacques Torres Chocolate Shop It is so good. I had a mocha chocolate, which has a shot of espresso.

Before we left Brooklyn we visited Cranberry's a coffee shop on Henry and Cranberry Streets and went to a little Lebanese restaurant, where the prices were very reasonable.

We crossed from Brooklyn, via the Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan, we drove through China Town, always a place that never sleeps, and exited Manhattan island via the Holland Tunnel.

    I am especially envious of your mocha hot chocolate.
