New York, United States

What a whirlwind the last 5 days have been! We managed to see a lot of what we wanted to:

The Met
Guggenheim, Central Park, Times Square, plenty of subway rides, World Trade Centre site, Museum of Natural History
a New York Mets game
Little Italy, Greenwich, Chinatown, Soho and the Top of Rockafeller!

It is such a huge city with so many things to do it becomes really hard to decide what you want to see. New York is like a 5 year old kid on 20 red bulls. So much noise, traffic, people everywhere. But it's not over whelming at all, very safe and a lot of fun. The city isn't nearly as crowded as we expected and we only saw one little baby rat!

The people are friendly and very helpful, which also wasn't expected. The hostel that we stayed at is called the Big Apple hostel. Not a bad little place, a little grungy, and the price was more than what we booked for. Had fun, but would probably check out another place next time.

We found a nice pub off Amsterdam and ~75th street, .. called "The Amsterdam". Go figure. We had a number of good pints and found out that we really don't like our Martini's dirty, lesson learned for sure!

Strolled through Central park, it is amazing to see the Oasis in the middle of the busy hectic crazy city. We imagined how nice it would be to stroll through and to walk the dog (if we had one).

Comedy night was a good time and we met some new friends from the real Amsterdam! Elke & Jeroen we're coming to visit in a couple of months!

Sydney sorry we didn't make it out for the Korean wings! We just ran out of time to get over to Brooklyn, but we promise to make time for it on our next trip to NYC!

Brad / Cheryl, and any other hunters... (I'm not but I was thinking of you all) check out the rack!

Dinner, just off of Broadway, Thanks Bryan and Kate! XOXOX
