Again another great sunny morning, a perfect match for a Helicopter flight! On the way to 6 E River Piers a promoter talked to us explaining his company’s offers and we got a flight spot superfast without long queues.
We followed our route to Wall Street, which was crowded with tourists and police but not with occupants as expected. From the newspapers we found out later, that the police had a sort of “clean up” only a few days before we got there…
The ticket was free of charge and available at the office further north. When we finally got through the traffic and arrived, we decided not to go back again but leave it for another time when the new memorial will be finished.
Meanwhile we got very hungry so we decided to walk further up north to the West End to eat lunch at the gluten-free Restaurant Risotteria.
It was crowded but we got a table for two and the food was just amazing, J. took this picture to show the appealing quality.
They also prepare take-away – I can highly recommend to taste anything on their menu, even if you don’t have the time to eat inside the restaurant.
After our rest we thought visiting the MoMa next would be a great idea.
After a couple of hours in the museum we wanted to leave… but the bar in the lounge had just opened and the DJ turned up the volume. That’s New York – you need to be in the right place at the right time for the perfect event!
One hand in the air for the big city Street lights,
big dreams all looking pretty
No place in the world that can compare
Put your lighters in the air,
everybody say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
