The short trip my babe organized for my birthday was to NYC!
He managed to keep our destination secret until we arrived at the gate. I was so happy and so excited!
there was a little detail we did not know about until we got there:
hurricane Sandy was coming. We managed to enjoy the city as much as we
could for the first three days and we still managed to do something
during the last two days after Sandy. We visited the southern half of the city: we walked around the historical side, Soho, Tribecca, Chinatown, Little Italy, Greenwhich Village and
the West Village, we saw Time Square, the MoMa, and
Battery Park. But after the hurricane many attractions were
During the hurricane, we had to stay at the
hotel, which was in Newport, Jersey City (about 15 minutes far away from
Manhattan) with no electricity or running water for one day, after which we decided
to risk to get another hotel in the city (which, as you can immagine, was
exactly what every other turist was trying to do on that same day). Our
hotel helped us book another room in lower Manhattan, but when we arrived
we discovered that power had just left that building too and we had to
walk around for the streets of NY in search of some vacant room.
Luckily, we found a place with power and water. It was not as inviting as the one my boyfriend had booked in Newport, but at least we
had a place to stay! Nevertheless, the real vacation really lasted the
first three days only.
After the super storm, that is after the
floods, the fires and the evacuations, only the mid and upper side if the
city was still active and alive. The other sides really reminded more of a ghost city."The show must go on" seemed to be the main message coveyed from the still
active parts of the city. Everywhere, the ambience was sad. Everyone was trying to act as normal as possible, keep on working (the New Yorkers and professionals on business trip to NYC) or keep on visiting (the turists), but the truth was that the situation was far
from beeing normal.
We were lucky: we knew that no matter what
happened, at a certain point we would eventually go back home. But beside the lack
of power and water, several people lost their homes, and many are now
struggling with the lost of their businesses.
I will not try to show you any of the
Sandy-related pictures we have been taking, but only those that to my
eyes describe the vibes of New York and my personal impressions on the
nature of the city. Hope you will enjoy!
