Lucky me this Frank Sinatra quote is not quite true, at least in our case. Walking the Brooklyn Bridge was just the beginning of our today’s journey.
First we headed to Clark St. which is located in Brooklyn. Our plan was to walk straight to the bridge and cross over to Manhattan. But we got caught by the beautiful charm of Brooklyn and spend about two hours exploring the area near the Brooklyn Bridge.
Finally walking across the East River was a stunning experience. The view is just fantastic and the Bridge itself worth every moment we spent there.
After a short coffee break, we headed to the Wall St, including the NYSE and of course The Charging Bull. It’s kinda funny to watch people rubbing the bulls balls cause it’s supposed to grand luck. 😉
Soon we got tired of his balls and more curios about another one. It was time to watch the FIFA 2010 Worldcup Final. Two corners away we had discovered a narrow street called Stone Street with a half a dozen pubs. Almost everyone was broadcasting the game. We took place at the bar and enjoyed two good German beers and a bad game. Congratulation to my Spanish friends. 😀
As the game had come to an end we went to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal right away. We crossed over to Staten Island and back, just to take some shots from Downtown Manhattan and ‘ye old Miss Liberty.
We visited Little Italy and China Town once again and ended our trip in SoHo. Thanks Julia for the advice about the SoHo Garden, a really nice little Cafe.
Back at Times Square we tried to figure out where we had seen the “American Idiot” Broadway show advertisement. It took us about one and a half hour to come back to the exact point where we started just to find out that they don’t sell tickets on Sunday’s. Epic fail. 😀
