The Jersey Shore and Exotic New York

I have not posted for a couple of weeks because my wife and I took a quick trip to the USA. I will get back to finishing my tales about Asia but I wanted to get this trip to the east coast of the USA off my agenda.

A trip to the new York Area should always include a visit here. It is just too iconic to pass up. When foreigners ask me what they should see when the go to America, I always say, Big Sur and The Jersey Shore. A continent, and a world apart.

This is one of the two things the Jersey Shore is famous for.

This is the other.

Combine the two and you get this. This is a my sis-in-law’s husband doing what I felt like doing after a few hours of doing the shore.

A trip  to NYC should always include a look at Central Park.

My wife and I decided to take a carriage ride through the park. I had never been inside Central Park before so I enjoyed seeing things like Strawberry Fields and a dozen other sights famous for being in movies.

A chill ran down my spine, (well not really) when I saw this building from the park. I will leave it to you to figure out why. Comment if you get it.

FAO Schwartz is a wonderful toy store of lore and reputation. It is right next to Central Park.  I do not suggest visiting it with a child in tow!

This is my wife trying to keep me out of MY favorite toy store! The Apple Store is right in front of FAO Schwartz. I suggest you do not enter with your credit card!

Now, while visiting the USA, there is one thing I always be sure to do.

Seeing a Baseball game is mandatory. This is the best sport in the world, and missing a chance to see a game while in the USA is like missing the Taj while in India.


Thanks for reading. Share with a FB friend because that raises my readership and my Klout score!

Stay tuned for more of Burma!

  1. Finally! A blog post about someplace that I have actually visited. (And the answer is– the twin-towered building was made famous by the Ghostbusters movie.)

  2. Hey,big brother, another great entry and one I can actually relate to. I always love my time in NY…a great place to visit…would not want to live there. In April,when I last visited, I spent an entire day in Central Park. I asked an interesting looking gentleman directions and he spent the next four hours being my tour guide. I ended up taking him to dinner. New Yorkers are given a bad rap for being so rude, in fact I find the people charming Hope all is cool with the both of you..Much love always

  5. Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to create a superb article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and never seem to get anything done.
