A few pictures and words from and about my holiday to New York.

Just as a change of pace, and because I said I would, this post is regarding my trip to New York! with my mates Paul and Leigh from 18.06.15 – 29.06.15.

It was a brilliant trip and I’d like to thank Leigh for organising it and being spot on with the directions and ideas for places to go while we were there. When I got back I immediately knew that I wanted to go back there at some point. To live. And eat pancakes and doughnuts and burgers and drink ale and learn how to drive just so I can beep and swear at people. Well, I don’t think I’d like to live there as I love Manchester to much but I would like to learn to drive specifically to let out my anger on the streets of New York!. On one occasion, I did see someone, who looked like he had the right to complain about the taxi in fronts driving, shout Get out of the way you f*ckin idiot! n a thick New York! accent. I made sure to wait until he drove off before laughing because I’ve heard and seen that on TV but to see it in real life was cool. Along with this, we went to a baseball game (the game ended New York! Yankees 10 vs Philadelphia Phillies 2), drank many beers in our New York! local The Ginger Man http://www.gingerman-ny.com/, walked EVERYWHERE, went to the Freedom Tower, Wall Street, took the Staten Island ferry, went to Soho, chilled in Central Park, had one of the best nights out I’ve ever had when we went out in Brooklyn, and did many many more things on top of that. But for right now these are just a few of the pictures I took while we were there. Hope you enjoy them and have a nice day.

Times Square. Always busy. Always cool.

Inside Madison Square Garden. I was well giddy when I saw this. Memorabilia from the first Wrestlemania held at the Garden.

Coney Island. Lovely place to relax and chill. However, I managed to burn my back and there is now a hand print, my own, in sun tan where I put some sun cream on just the places I could reach.

Pretty much each view you can get from the top of the Rockefeller Center is awesome. This was one of them.

Across the Brooklyn Bridge. Again but this time with the bridge getting involved.

Across the Brooklyn Bridge. This one is a personal favourite. Managed to get the sun shining through as we went back over the bridge.
