New York:疯狂大都会!

标题忍不住加感叹号!!我太爱纽约了!
纽约阿纽约阿,去了之后才发觉自己喜欢大都会的人!
喜欢那里的人,那里的shopping,那里的一切!
回来之后,也买了一本叫《I Heart New York》的书来看,
里面写的每一个场景,让我觉得好熟悉。。所以这次就引用里面的一些句子来写这篇。
我一定要回去那里。

New York is so amazing. It makes me feel like...like I'm really living, you know? It makes me want to do new things and just discover every inch of it. See everything there is to see.

第一站去了empire state building。
上过的塔都是被玻璃镜子封住,可是这个是开架式的。
我们去的时候是大热天,可是那本书去时是sunset。。
虽然没有机会看日落,可是能想象到那个画面。

The city sighed beneath us, preparing itself for the shift from day to night. Lights began to ripple off then on from the southern tip of the island upwards, as people made their journeys from work to home.
It looks unreal when it snows or when there's a storm. Just like a painting.

我喜欢这张照片!!哈哈!!多么希望有得卖这张名信片呢!!
这里也是金刚爬上去的地方!!

然后就是中央公园central park啦!!
从empire state building望下来的时候可以看到一大片的绿地,整个展延下来没有尽头!
以前有一个人就保留了这块地,这块地就变成了一个超大公园。。纽约的肺啊!


我们走了两个小时才走了一半。(一直在拍照)
'How can this exist in the middle of the city?' I marvelled. As we ventured further and further into the greenery, the city seemed to fade away, leaving a complete oasis, packed with joggers, families, couples and groups of friends. Just about every sort of person you imagine was in the park.

不得不提是times square的夜景。。啊!!!太美了!!!

The noise, the people, the feeling that anything could happen at any given second. That was what inflated my blood pressure, that was what sent adrenaline surging through me as the streets got narrower, more congested. I loved the neon billboards, the giant Target ads, the garish Hershey store, Bubba Gump's Shrimp Co, Virgin, Sephora, ToysRus. They were just adverts, stores, restaurants, but it was the clicking cameras and the pushing people with the happiest faces you'd ever seen that made the place what it was. And it was amazing to me.

还有自由女神像也非常重要的地标。
We marched along the pavement and down into a busy park, I was so consumed with checking out the various sculptures and lines of people chatting, laughing, eating ice cream, I was almost at the fence before I saw it. When I did, I stopped dead. There it was. The clearest truest symbol of New York, of America, standing proud and keeping guard across the bay. The Statue of Liberty.

'It's so weird,'I said,'I've seen it a thousand times on TV and stuff but to actually see it, there, real. Wow.'


总结:
1。纽约的火车站很肮脏,可以看到老鼠跑来跑去,沟渠水在流。(已经有100年历史了)
可是不得不承认,火车真的可以很快把你从一个地点transfer去另外一个地点!
而且在火车上可以看到形形色色的人。。有潮流的,有落魄的,有很大声讲话的。。。
It would be such a New York cliche to call the subway a melting pot but it really was. Businessman in suits clung to the straps, tourist shoppers from Fifth Avenue clutched their Saks and Tiffany's bags nervously, while a group of Hispanic girls with truly gravity defying hair backcombed each other beside me. In between them, older travellers rode the train with their eyes closed.

2。在纽约还见到很久没见的朋友!!!还是同届学记。。
原本还担心会不会出现尴尬场面呢?
原来一点都不会,那种感觉一下就回来了。。
在外地遇到朋友的感觉很好。。=)

还看到在cedar point做工的台湾人。真有缘。


3。我也要占领华尔街(的公牛)
保佑保佑啊公牛,让我多赚一点钱!!

也不会忘记那些黄色德士到处都是

还有就是,星巴克!

Luckily, this was New York city and Starbucks was never more than two minutes away.
I'd never seen such a mix of people. The most popular customers were the men and women studiously ignoring the rest of the patrons and desperately tapping away on Ipads, intermittently stopping to check their WiFi connections, sigh loudly and sip their huge drinks.

New York is a city of new beginnings. People go to LA to 'find themselves',they come to New York to become someone new.
