52nd Street

Finally, New York!

For this US trip, going to the Big Apple was the major agenda. Yeah, that and my wife's concert.

New York is definitely one of Raft3r's favorite cities.

We left Baltimore Thursday evening and four hours later, my friend's cousin picked us up at the bus terminal. 

The foul smell of garbage indicated we have arrived.

For most tourists, NY is among the top destinations in the States. You can't blame them, really. New York rocks! 

There is so much to see and lots to do.

Raft3r went gaga upon sighting Virgin Megastore in Times Square. I was in cloud nine! That's three floors of movie and music goodies. Raft3r was drooling all over the place.

I wanted to stay there the entire time but my travel buddies kept nagging me to go Central Park. Sadly, Raft3r caved in. We channeled the Friends gang and strolled around.

How I wish taking a trip to Luneta Park can be just as cool.

New York is always depicted as a dangerous city in the movies. I just watched the DVD copy of the Brave one a week ago, that's where the film was shot. Marami ba talaga parang mga punks na walang sinasanto?

Raft3r said...

nanaybelen, Baltimore is a piece of cake compared to Mali Bay! Hehe

yummy friend, Yes. Next year! Big Apple uli! Hehe. I have to agree with Mr. Bing. New York truly is awesome!

sonnet's, Alam mo hinanap ko talaga yun parang tunnel sa Central Park kung san na mug si Jodie sa The Brave One. Pucha sa dami ng tunnels, I couldn't decipher which one. Hehe

Wendy said...

I'm sure bigla mong nakalimutan ang astroplus =)

Asa ka pa sa Luneta Park! =)

Sonnet's said...

Hahaha! It's a good thing there were no punks hanging around in the tunnels you went to:) The movie's tunnel scene really had an impact on me.

Raft3r said...

CM, Astroplus? Ano yon? Nyahaha

sonnet's, Galing talaga basta gawang Jodie Foster! Ehem.

Big Eyed Gal said...

Raft3r!!! Weee! Buhay pa ako!


Kahit na parang may sariling puso na ang paa ko dahil throbbing na sya sa sakit kaka-lakad eh go pa din ako! Nakakabaliw nga ang Virgin Megastore. Dyan ako nilapitan ng mala bouncer nila staff dahil nakaupo na ako sa steps sa sakit ng paa ko. Si Aris kasi ang tagal mag ikot. Tinalo ako! LOL!

Ingat dyan! Mga key chains ko ha. :-)

Raft3r said...

big_eyed_gal, I was wondering what happened to you! Hehe. Nabuhay! Yahoo!
