It is way harder than I thought carrying a bag around the city.
Grand Central Terminal
Saw this place in The Tomorrow’s People! Haha
I thought the subway was really fancy like the ones in the Tomorrow’s People, but oh well, it’s just pretty old and smelly. D=
After hours of planes and transfers, I was literally starving for food. Food? I thought I’d eat anything, anything that was edible, so around the Grand Terminal Station, without looking at yelp (totally regretting it), I went to Vietnamese / Chinese / Japanese restaurant (I didn’t what style that restaurant is, but as I was carrying a super heavy backpack and was super hungry, I didn’t care much and honestly didn’t want to walk any further). The food was, unexpectedly awful … I order a pad see yu, but instead, I got a chicken flat noodle, with you know what, tons of soy sauce and salt. It came with a vegetable soup though (WTH?!) AVOID THIS RESTAURANT AT ALL COST!
Seconddd Stop of the Day
United Nations Headquarters
Rainy day… No flags.. No nothing.
To enter, apparently, I need to reserve online in advance… oh well, didn’t get in. My Airbnb host said the UN was nothing special. Well, I guess I didn’t miss much.
Metlife Building’s Christmas Tree
Heading back to Grand Central Station
Actually Grand Central Station is pretty much like the Central Station?) in Los Angeles, but it has a lot more small businesses in Grand Central Station.
A small train museum / gift store inside the station
New York Public Library inside Bryant Park
A place for me to finally sit down and take some rest.
This architecture has a lot of artistic elements in it. Paints are all over the rooms and walls inside the structure.
Bryant Park is sort of like Union Square in San Francisco, but I feel like it’s a combination of both Hong Kong’s Night Market and Union Square. One side is all sorts of handcrafting stores, food stores, photographers, while the other side is for ice skating.
