    Day 1.193 – Faces of Manhattan

    0 km on bike. Countless km walking the streets of Manhattan.

    It’s a perfect, sunny day in New York. Clear sky, some 30 degrees C, and yet I’m boiling with excitement all day. Three hours of web research at home got me ready to explore lower Manhattan.

    Come with me – it’s going to be a long day.

    Kitchy!

    Hundreds of mini-buddhas at the Chinatown Temple...

    People do a lot of shopping in Manhattan. For my part, I limit myself to 3 pears for a buck in Chinatown, apart from lunch and drinks.

    The World Trade Center Site...

    Tune of The Day: Everything Is – Neutral Milk Hotel

    14 Wall Street, Manhattan.

    Broadway, Manhattan.

    If anything takes up a special place in the chock-a-block crammed attic of my brain, it is being in New York, exploring the city at large, on foot. I absolutely LOVE this megalopolis. Nothing less than love.

    Show me!

    New York is a city of contrasts. Like most big cities in the first, second, and third world. One minute you get this…

    North Cove, Manhattan.

    …the next this…
    Assumably homeless in Manhattan.

    The same goes for me. One minute I’m eating a 4 USD Vietnamese sandwich in Chinatown…

    Lunch!

    …the next I’m drinking fine reds in a stunning Manhattan penthouse apartment…
