In Times Square with Kev and Gabi

In Times Square with Kev and Gabi

Top of the heap! Notwithstanding the great time I had in Montréal it is time to move on to my new destination. I grab a nice eleven-hour train ticket and I find myself happily couched in the Big Apple! My host and my co-surfer picked me up from the train station, and drove me directly to the centre of a Friday night Times Square.

I swear, the change from the relaxed Québec favourite to the hyper-crowded, over-lit, frenzy metropolis was unexpected. I mean, I knew the place, having been there in the other millennium (including a trip to the top of the Twin Towers, hi Ally!), yet it got me unprepared. Anyway, it didn’t took that long to get acquainted with the city, and I managed to visit at least two of the places I’ve missed the other time: the MoMA and the Guggenheim.

Thanks to my host, we also enjoyed a trip to Coney Island and attended an amazing street-party in Brooklyn: once a year the people from the two facing blocks bring food, beverage and music to the street, so they get to know the neighbours. Just a few years ago this was unthinkable, due to the massive drug dealing plaguing the district, but eventually the citizens got their city back. On the same night—but not after a power-nap—Kev took us to an African-Jazz concert in Harlem!

So far, so good. What will happen next?

      Assuming the 13th Avenue as the middle line, it is therefore in the upper west side.
