It was really nice to be 'on the side' as it was a 'bit quieter". Still it was Always some kind of 'noise'; honking, emergency vehicles sirens, police cars, people, AC etc... Not sure why some chose to live in the middle of it all.
As it happens, we were fortunate to be a part of the 4th of July celebrations. Independence day!
It was great to see how families gathered in parks or along the beaches to hang out, relax and do some BBQ, in order to late in the evening gather around Manhattan to see a spectacular fireworks display that lasts 25min shot up from four barges between Brooklyn and Manhattan. Awesome!!
Beside that, we walked as one should in a big city as we wanted/had to see a lot and actually we have probably seen all neighbourhoods on Manhattan. Even beyond it, we were over to Brooklyn and its stunning bridge. There are plenty of steel bridges and the architecture of them ALL is just breathtaking. Lots of details.
One of the days we walked 35km excluding an early morning run in Central Park adding 10km to it all. As you can imagine, we didn't have any issues sleeping :)
