the city so nice they named it twice

So... I came back from a week in NYC last Monday :)
I'll tell a few details of each day.

Monday I got lost at the Grand Central Station and enjoyed my way back to the hotel by walking on 5th avenue, Broadway and Times Square. They picked me up and we went to Rockefeller Center and had a great view of The City. At night, we went to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum and took photos with almost every wax celebrity.

Tuesday We took the Circle Line Cruise and saw the Statue of Liberty and some famous bridges. We shopped and, at night, we went to the top of the Empire state and saw the city that never sleeps.

Wednesday We went to The Dakota and walked through Strawberry Fields. Then, we went to the American National History Museum. After that, we crossed Central Park by the Jackie Onassis Reservoir to go to the Guggenheim Museum. We closed the day with Broadway's The Phantom of the Opera.

Thursday We crossed Central Park in order to arrive to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (my favourite), and then, headed our way to the Frick Collection. After some art, we headed to the Fashion avenue and saw all the famous boutiques (I had a little Audrey Hepburn moment in front of Tifanny & Co). It was a great day ♥.

Friday We went to Ground Zero by subway. Then, we visited St. Paul's chapel and shopped at J&R on our way to Wall Street. Next step: Chinatown and SoHo. There, we went to the New Museum (there was like the best elevator ever) and then to Strand (I had to buy a bag, because I bought plenty of books).

Saturday First stop: St. Patrick's Cathedral. Then, we bought some books at Barnes & Noble. Then we went to the MoMA (great museum too). We went walking to the Whitney Museum (on our way, we passed by The New York Palace and there was a little Gossip Girl moment there). After the Whitney, we hurried our way to the Central Zoo and then back to the hotel. Kichi, iGnaa and I went to see Chicago The Musical and then we had like our "last supper".

Sunday Last day, last souvenirs and long flight.

ya ví las ochentamil fotos en el facebook, pero qué lindo que hayas podido cumplir uno de tus sueños, querida.
y la principal razóon por la que quería comentar era para decir que el título que pusiste es buenísimo, y que "Scranton is great, but New York is like Scranton on acid. No, on speed. No, on steroids."
