We wanted to go here for such a long time! When finally the day arrived we were so happy, thrilled,nervous at the same time. But like always, we were ready for another adventure! It was a 9 hour flight from bruxelle to JFK airport. After landing we took a cab to our hotel Stanford situated in Midtown Manhattan. Yellow cabs everywhere, hotdogs stands, sirene of police cars on the background, huge buildings! My gosh we felt like we were middle in a movie scene..We were already in love with this city and we haven’t even explored it yet.
Our hotel was perfect located just a few minutes from Time Square, Penn station, Empire State building, Shopping centers and lots more , all in a walking distance. Luckily we had the best weather, considering it was middle of the winter. It was not super warm, but more spring like weather.
