Steuben parade and NJ Beach

HI, i was very lazy in the last few weeks with updating my weblog, therefre here is the next report. On Satutrday the 17th of September we visited NYC for the 48th annual Steuben parade. It was a 2 hour event with a lot of cras and groups in german, mostly bavarian,clothing and with german culture. It was a great event. Afterwards we walked trough manhattan had some lunch and i went shopping for some clothing! The next day was my last day at the Beach. Some friends and i went to the Long island beach state park, it was really great weather. Sunny all day and the water was really nice. I will miss all these things.

this weekend was great! It started on Saturday with doing absolutly nothing. I slept long and talked to some friends on the phone. The Sunday started early by driving to new York arround 9.30 am. I picked up Klaus at is apartment and we drove together to the PATH terminal @ Grove Street in Jersey City. We then took the subway to 8th Ave and 14th Street to start our walk trough Greenwich Village, SoHo, Lower East Side , Little Italy and Chinatown towards Battery park. We crossed washington square and at 1 pm we had lunch at a German restaurant called Loreley (www.loreleynyc.com) The food was great. after walking trough Little Italy and Chinatown we came by City hall and i sat down in City Hall park while Klaus walked up and down Brooklyn Bridge. Afterwards we went to Battery Park to conclude our trip with a look at lady Liberty. Our trip ended aroun 7pm by taking the Path back to jersey city.

Here are some pictures of the trip:


This Sunday we went to NYC again. It was a great but long day. The day started at eight in the morning, after I had 4.5 hours sleep! I had been to Philly the night before! The Sunday started with a great sunny impression through my window, but the weather wasn’t that good when we arrived in NYC. After 11 in the morning it got all sunny and nice again! We started from the Path station at 33rd street and walk all the way to the New York library near Grand central station. Then we went to Grand central to take a look at the nice architecture and went on to the Rockefeller center. We had lunch at the Hard rock cafe and went for a nice brake into Central Park (bowling green).

The weather was all nice by then. After our little break I tried again to reach Andy, a friend from Germany. This time I got through and we meet for a few minutes in The Trump Tower at & Ave and 57 street. It was nice to see him. Our next journey was down to City Hall with the 6 train and then a nice walk to the Staten Island ferry. We walk a bit around on Staten Island, took a look at the 9/11 memorial and went back to Manhattan and then back to Princeton. It was a great but long day! I hope you all enjoy the pictures.
