I went for a huge walk, starting at Astor Place, on to Washington Square Park, and all through Chelsea where I found my own pub! Along with Chelsea Market, the High Line Parkway (an old train track turned into a walk way above the road). At Madison Square Garden there was a ridiculous amount of Yellow Cabs. Back at Times Square, the sand sculpting was in full swing. On to the Guggenheim Museum, there was a huge line to get in because it was a free entry time, so we just had a look at the outside. I was interested in this because it was the set for “The International” action sequence I worked on, and a few exterior shots. At night, Dasom cooked an awesome meal with loads of dishes! and had some cocktails with her flat mates.
The next day we relaxed a little, after jamming the whole of Manhattan into four long days, we took a little trip to Brooklyn (via 14th Street which is full of great little people statues) and into Dasom’s favourite area, Williamsburg. Then on my last night, we went to a house party at one of Dasom’s friend’s place in Harlem. We had roof access and it was a really hot day/night so we stayed up there for most of the night. Eventually people tried to sleep, but 20 people in one apartment and 30C made it impossible haha. I contemplated sleeping on the roof, but the idea of waking up on a rooftop in Harlem in the Sun gave me visions of The Hangover! So as usual I had no sleep before my flight back to the UK and straight to work! haha.
Sigh… leaving 30C sun-and-fun back to cold-wet-grey London…. haha
What an awesome trip to the USA! Thanks Karen & Dasom!
