One of the things I have wanted to do for years is to walk over Brooklyn Bridge. I can't imagine anything more breathtaking than watching Manhattan's skyline from up there. So naturally, I wasn't disappointed when I did it; walked from Brooklyn to Manhattan. And I was so lucky to have the sun shining down on everything.
While we waited for the subway to take us to the bridge, there was a little peak of Empire State Building. And some lovely buildings in the foreground, I might add.
When you reach Manhattan, there's the financial district to the left with the Freedom Tower and huge buildings. On the right, there's a row of DDR-style buildings that look rather uninviting. What a strange contrast...

Ah, New York. Beautiful, breathtaking New York. I must warn you that I have lots lots lots of photos to show - many of them with buildings, obviously. There are so many things to see in that city, and despite it being far too cold (we expected something else coming from icy Montréal), we walked around and managed to see quite a lot.
We walked around the Village trying to find a good thrift store and ended up by the water. It was icy and windy, so we caught refuge in a trendy café before ending up at a bar with a very drunk old bartender. I caught him peeing in the sink in the girls' bathroom - but at least he had the courtesy to make me a strong drink first...
