I sketched in the Big Apple! New York



My trip in New York was held in September 2011. This trip was the first of our stays in the USA and I was very excited to set foot in the streets of this megalopolis! We've chosen to spend it with my in-laws because they did not plan a trip to an English speaking country (they do not speak a word of English). 

For us it was a great joy to know that thanks to us they were able to achieve one of their dreams!



Beacon Hotel (2130 Broadway 75th StreetNYC

We stayed in a Manhattan hotelBeacon, on the Upper West SideThe hotel offers rooms with kitchenette and a lounge (with sofa bed). Ideal for family
The cost of living is low being 4. Besides, we could eat our meals directly in our room. There is a grocery store right across the street that has a range of fruits absolutely delicious!
Oh yeah, right next to the hotel there is the Beacon Theatrewhere many concerts are held throughout the year, you're on Broadway!



 What have we done?
  • We walked through Central Park (followed by a picnic) ...
  • We visited the Museum of Natural History ...
  • We strolled in Times Square by day and night ...
  • We climbed in the crown of the Statue of Liberty (354 steps!) ...
