A New Yorker Moment Part IV

Hey my lovely readers and NYC lovers! How was your week so far? Mine was pretty busy, school is in full swing, we got loads of projects going on this semester. For example we have to shoot our first own movie, we have to design a website and even create our first 3D animation movie, it's super exciting! I'm trying to post more regularly now since I have so many NYC pics left and want to start posting about Germany again and also my upcoming Mallorca trip in November.
So today you get to see some photos of a series I dearly love - A New Yorker Moment. It's part 4 of my series that gives you an impression of New Yorker street life and the wonderful people living in the Big Apple. I took these photos a year ago but wanted to share them with you. NYC is a melting pot of so many crazy, inspiring and creative persons. It's always a pleasure taking photos of these people and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did shooting them ;-)

Hello there, Manhattan!

Hey guys, hope you all had a marvelous Monday! Are you planning a NYC trip in the near future or some day in your life? Today I'll tell you all about the best spots where you can admire the skyline - Hello there, Manhattan!

  1. Staten Island Ferry: I took the first photos you can see in this post on the ferry. It provides you with a perfect view of Lower Manhattan, the Freedom Tower and the Statue of Liberty! Plus, the ride from Manhattan to Staten Island and back is free, woohoo!
  2. Brooklyn Bridge Park: This park is surely one of my favorite New Yorker spots, not only because they have romantic movie nights in summer ;-) If you cross the Brooklyn Bridge walking (which we did here), you will already have a great view from there. Once you get to Brooklyn Bridge Park you will be rewarded with a stunning view of the skyline and some relaxing lawns. You can see the park and the wonderful view in these last few photos. Note: It's even more breathtaking at night!
  3. The Piers in Williamsburg (Brooklyn) and Long Island City (Queens): Hipster hoods and relaxing spots with a great view, can you ask for more?
  4. Roosevelt Island: One of my favorite islands around Manhattan and the best thing about it is... you can get there with the Roosevelt Island tram that takes you over the East River! So you don't just get an amazing view of the skyline but also of the Manhattan streets from above! (Check out my posts about Roosevelt Island by clicking here)
  5. Hoboken (New Jersey): A lovely place in Jersey, quiet and peaceful, just perfect to admire the skyline! You can easily get there with the PATH train. Note: I celebrated the Fourth of July there, which was incredible! The views of Manhattan's skyline with the fireworks are just unbeatable! (See the pictures here)

I hope you'll all get to enjoy one of these places at least once! If you have any questions regarding traveling to New York or non-tourist spots, feel free to ask me ;-) Enjoy the photos!

The "Earth" without "Art" is just "Eh"

Hey hey, I'm sitting in my Spanish class right now, trying to improve my Spanish skills with my teacher from Peru, haha! So I leave you a quick post about one of my fav topics - ART!
Today you get to see loads of art pieces I found in NYC - in galleries, on the street, I'm a great art spotter ;-) Hope you enjoy the snapshots, have a wonderful Friday, everyone!
