New York: day 5

995_DSCN0263_mia

On day 5 we planned to explore Central Park, what happened will be a funny story! We started from the north watching all the different sides of this park, that changes area by area. I’m impressed on how big is this park and the chance to find the kind of spot you want. I’ve also seen many squirrels, that in Italy don’t live exactly in the city, and some strange birds.

Il quinto giorno avevamo in programma di esplorare Central Park, quello che poi è successo sarà una storia divertente! Abbiamo iniziato dal nord a vedere tutte le facce di questo parco, che cambia di area in area. Sono rimasta impressionata dalla sua grandezza e dalla facilità di poter trovare lo stile di parco che preferiamo. Ho anche visto molti scoiattoli, cosa non molto facile in centro città in Italia, e alcuni uccellini davvero strani.

Halfaway our tour in the park, we stopped to visit The Met (included in New York CityPass). It was interesting to see many piece of arts I’ve studied at school, but what I’ve liked the most of this museum is the architecture, the way artworks are exposed and the strong importance of natural light that makes you feel like in another dimension.

A metà del nostro tour nel parco ci siamo fermate per visitare il Met (incluso nel New York CityPass). E’ stato interessante vedere molti capolavori studiati a scuola, ma quello che mi è piaciuto di più sono stati l’architettura del museo, il modo in cui le opere sono esposte e soprattutto l’importanza della luce naturale che ti fa sentire come in un’altra dimensione.

After taking a pretzel for launch we went back exploring Central Park. For certain this is the most touristic part, the one you see in every love movie set in New York (and they were filming something near Bathesda fountain, but we weren’t able to see what!), but has its charm. Also I have a passion for artificial lakes so I was definitely in love. When we were on our way to Strawberry fields the sky became tremendously dark and started one 0f the worst storm I’ve ever seen. We were in the middle of nowhere and we had to reach the closest metro stop, our raincoats were totally unesuful and we arrived at the metro soaked. We have to go back to our hotel to take a shower and change our clothes. Fun fact: just after we took the metro the rain stopped.

Dopo esserci prese un pretzel per pranzo siamo tornate ad esplorare Central Park. Di sicuro questa è la parte più turistica, quella che si vede in ogni film d’amore ambientato a New York (e stavano davvero filmando qualcosa vicino alla Bathesda fountain, ma non siamo state in grado di vedere cosa!), ma ha comunque il suo fascino. Inoltre a me piacciono molto i laghi artificiali e perciò l’ho molto apprezzata. Mentre andavamo verso Strawberry Fields il cielo è diventato tremendamente nero ed è iniziato uno dei peggiori temporali che abbia mai visto. Eravamo in mezzo al nulla e l’unica cosa da fare era raggiungere la fermata della metro più vicina, i nostri impermeabili erano completamente inutili e siamo arrivate alla metro fradicie. Siamo quindi dovute tornare in hotel per farci una doccia e cambiarci. Fun fact: appena salite in metro ha smesso di piovere.

As our plans for the day were completely disorted we decided to do a thing we weren’t able to do on day 3, as we spent so much time inside the American Museum of Natural History: walk the High Line. We’ve been told by many that on West Village there are a lot of great places to eat, so we decided to go there for dinner and later walk all the High Line till the end. After looking around we were impressed by Santina, a very colorful restaurant really close to the High Line. Inside we discovered it was a sort of fusion between italian and american cooking. We’ve liked it and also the staff was the kindest!

Siccome i nostri piani si erano completamente stravolti abbiamo deciso di fare una cosa che non eravamo riuscite a fare il terzo giorno causa del troppo tempo passato dentro l’American Museum of Natural History: attraversare la High Line. In molti ci avevano detto che nel West Village si trovano molti posti buoni in cui mangiare, perciò abbiamo deciso di recarci lì per cena e poi attraversare tutta la High Line. Dopo esserci guardate un po’ in giro siamo rimaste particolarmente impressionate da Santina, un ristorante molto colorato molto vicino alla High Line. Dentro abbiamo scoperto che era una sorta di fusione tra la cucina italiana e americana. Ci è piaciuto e il personale è stato il migliore incontrato nel nostro viaggio!

The walk on the High Line was magical, a way to see the city from another perspective. The lights of the skyscrapers are so fascinating and in the end I was happy that we’ve done it during the night. And it’s the end of another day so I’m waiting to hear about your stories in these places in the comments! Stay tuned for day 6!

La passeggiata sulla High Line è stata magica, un altro modo di vedere la città. Le luci dei grattacieli sono veramente affascinanti e alla fine sono stata contenta di aver fatto questa passeggiata la sera. Ed è la fine di un altro giorno e non vedo l’ora di sentire le vostre storie riguardo questi posti nei commenti! Rimanete sintonizzati per il giorno 6!

I was wearing:

During the day -> Vintage shirt | E-gò shorts | H&M bag | Vans sneakers

During the night -> United Colors Of Benetton trench | Converse All Star Sneakers
