New York, New Yooooork...

Need I really say it?... Need I?... The city that never sleeps stole my heart and now I will never have it back! There is nothing like it, never in my life have I been in a place with such energy! So many things to do, so much to see, eat, drink, walk, buy, visit... Madness in its best! I honestly do not know where to start describing the experience, the beginning seams that actually happened long before I landed in Newark and the end is not written yet... I have already a list of things I did not manage to do that can easily cover another week... and I was tempted yesterday, 5 hours after I got back, to book another plane ticket and go back!

Highlights... it is not at all easy to choose... Times Square, the crossroads of the world, upon arrival there just to get you in the NY mood! Top of the Rocks, certainly! That magical view over Manhattan shining in the morning sun (and the evening one for that matter... twice up there in the same day, don't do half things...) was just spectacular! My favourite building, the Chrysler, lit up in the night, pretty as can be and so distinguished! Theatre, no doubt! Saw two shows "Rock of Ages" and "Harvey", both great experiences! Sunday morning in Central Park, evening walk around Bryant park, the Villages, Soho, all priceless! And my birthday dinner at the "River Café" with that amazing view over the Brooklyn bridge and the Manhattan skyline (and the little birthday candle that came with my desert.. someone put some thought in it and and is greatly appreciated for that ;) will be unforgettable! Last but not least the Met, the best museum I have ever been in my life, if I can actually say I have been there as in just 5 hours I think I only saw 1/5 of it, (yep, it's better than Le Louvre and I'm not afraid to say it...) and the MoMA with its magnificent collection that I feel both made me a better person... art can do that, right? ;)

As for shopping? Well... surely I did not come back empty handed ;) but to be honest, it was not such a high priority. No, I did not take any bus to go to an outlet, no I did not not shop 'till I dropped and no my credit cards did not suffer... that much... New York is better than shoes and being there left me so fulfilled that anything else but just being there was a far second... Hey, I even got to sing in the rain in NY, who can ask for more??!!

I thought you might find this amusing, about how people are judged on their shoes:
