On May 29th Tanja arrived in Detroit and because Flint is not that interesting we went to New York for a week.

The day we arrived we enjoyed the sun in the Central Park. At the evening we met us with Manu K., Andi and Bader (other exchange students from Kettering). They were on a three-day roadtrip to NY and that was their last day. Together we went to Staten Island with the ferry. Staten Island is not that interesting for tourists but you get an awesome view of the skyline of Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridge. On Staten Island we saw a memorial of 9/11 which was very nice.

The next days we went into the heart of Manhattan, visited the MoMA (Museum of Modern Arts), the Empire State Building by night (great view), Trump Building, Times Square, the Bronx, Rockefeller Center, Financial District, Grand Central Station, Ground Zero.
At Ground Zero there’s an outlet called Century 21, where you can find nearly every brand for a very good price.
Unfortunately we had no luck with the weather, it rained 4 days.

On Friday Ben and Frieder joined us. They were on a roadtrip to Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston and their last station was NY. Together with them I visited the ‘U.S.S. Intrepid’, an aircraft-carrier from WWII. There was also a submarine and a Concorde. At this time, Tanja visited the Guggenheim Museum.

At night we went to the Pacha New York, one of the most famous clubs in the world and we had a great time.

On our last day in NY, the weather became better and I took this opportunity to go jogging in the Central Park.
I warmly recommend to everybody to go jogging or at least to go for a walk in the Central Park, that’s really awesome.

After that, Tanja and I wanted to visit the Statue of Liberty, because we have postponed it because of the bad weather. Unfortunately they had closed very early, but we got an alternative πŸ™‚

Furthermore we drove to Brooklyn and took a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. There you also have an awesome view of Manhattan.
