Last Friday, December 12 I went to New York City with some friends of the Mexico 100 program. One of the great things of living in Washington DC, is that New York is very close, so you can plan your travel and go to New York very easily.
We arrive at 10 pm and we use the metro to get to our Hostel. The metro was very confusing compared to the Metro in Washington DC, so we got late to the Hostel. When we arrived the Hostel, we checked in and went to take a walk near the Hostel and we walked in the Central Park. We returned to the Hostel early because we wanted to get some rest because the next day we were going to walk all day long.
The next morning we woke up early and we went to check in to another Hostel that was in Times Square. We leave all the luggage in the hostel and went for a walk to Times Square. We walk a lot that day so we saw many buildings like the Empire State, The Chrysler Building, also we went to Little Italy and Chinatown. At the next day, we went to see the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge. It was awesome to visit this two places because they have a great view of all the city.
The trip was great and I had a good time, even though we had some problems with the hostels because it is very difficult to reserve one. But I prefer to live in Washington DC because it have many activities during the year and also is more beautiful. So if I had to choose from living in New York or living in Washington, I would pick Washington.
