New York: day 6

1215_WP_20160915_003_mia

Our day 6 in the Big Apple started where we stopped the afternoon before: on our way to Strawberry Fields and then exploring the rest of the Central park.

Il nostro sesto giorno nella Grande Mela è iniziato da dove ci eravamo fermate il pomeriggio prima: sulla via di Strawberry Fields e poi esplorando il resto di Central Park.

Last thing to visit in Central Park was, of course, the zoo. The six years old me came out again and I get so excited for every animal, just like a child. The zoo is quite small and so easy to visit, but not for this reason less beautiful. If I have to pick my favorite animal I pick for sure sea lions: lovey-dovey and super funny! I was also very impressed by the gigantic aviary (three floors!) where all the birds of the zoo stay and you can walk in and interact with them, if they want to of course.

L’ultima cosa da visitare a Central Park era, per forza, lo zoo. La seienne in me è saltata fuori di nuovo ed ero estasiata per ogni animale, proprio come una bimba. Lo zoo è abbastanza piccolo e semplice da visitare, ma non per questo meno bello. Se devo scegliere l’animale che mi è piaciuto di più, senza dubbio vi dico i leoni marini, coccolosissimi e super divertenti! Sono anche rimasta piacevolmente sorpresa dalla gigantesca voliera (a tre piani!) dove stanno tutti gli uccelli del parco e i visitatori possono entrare e interagire con loro, se loro vogliono chiaramente.

Out of the zoo we went taking the metro to go down on Ground Zero. Once there we started walking directed at TKTS down on Front St. At the begiggning of our walk we were surronded by skyscrapers and very laboured people getting something to eat during the (I think) very short lunch break. The more we walked in our direction the more the building became shorter and the people relaxed, till we reached a pedestrian zone (in New York?! What?!?) full of small places to eat and little shops, included our ticket shop. We get in and decided for The Phantom Of The Opera. After that, intrigued by the people coming out from Smorgasburg, we decided to go in to eat something. We discovered that it was like a reunion of different street food and after a long indecision we took a crab burger, really good! Also we’ve been eating it sitten in the middle of the street: crazy for New York. After all I’m sure about it: this is definitely my favorite zone in the city!

Uscite dallo zoo siamo andate a prendere la metro per scendere a Ground Zero. Una volta arrivate abbiamo iniziato a camminare in direzione di TKTS alla fine di Front St. All’inizio della camminate eravamo circondate da grattacieli e persone molto affannate che correvano a prendere qualcosa da mangiare in una pausa pranzo (credo) molto corta. Più, però, camminavamo verso la nostra meta, più i palazzi si abbassavano e più la gente si faceva rilassata, fino a che non siamo arrivate in una zona pedonale (a New York?! Cosa?!?) pieno di posticini per mangiare e negozietti tra i quali anche la nostra biglietteria. Entrate abbiamo scelto tra le opzioni The Phantom Of The Opera. Dopodichè, intrigate dalle persone che uscivano da Smorgasburg, abbiamo deciso di entrare lì per mangiare qualcosa. Abbiamo poi scoperto che era un’unione al coperto di tanti banchetti di street food e dopo una lunga indecisione ci siamo buttate sull’hamburger di granchio, veramente buono! Ci siamo anche sedute ad un tavolino in mezzo alla strada per mangiarlo: pazzesco pensando che era piena New York. Dopo tutto il viaggio sono assolutamente certa di una cosa: questa è la mia zona preferita della città!

After lunch we moved back to Ground Zero to have the most touching experience of our trip: 9/11 Museum (included in New York CityPass). The museum is set up inside the fundament of the Twin Towers, the photos shows just the first part of the museum where is permitted to take them. This is where you can see the remains of some carrier pillar that melted away with the fire of that day, some firemans jeeps that get ruined by the same fire and also a wall full of small blue squares, every square is in the exact color in which asked people remember the color of the sky that morning. Then we moved to the inner part where was not permitted to take photos. Let me say you have to be strong and prepared to get in. Not only objects founded in the ruins, not only brutal photos of that day that could be really enough to move you, no. There are also small rooms where you listen the original phone call from the people inside the towers or the airplanes to their loved ones. Their last words before dying. If you have just one minute to say goodbye to the people you love who will you call? What will you say? I was (and am) completely wasted after coming out and deeply marked like I had been just one time before in my life: when I went visiting Dachau concentration camp. Don’t read it wrong: this had no ruined my trip, or even my day, not at all. This had given me a new awareness, a new background to think about and to use it in my future life.

Dopo pranzo siamo tornate verso Ground Zero dove ci attendeva l’esperienza più toccante del nostro viaggio: il 9/11 Museum (incluso nel New York CityPass). Il museo è costruito nelle fondamenta delle Torri Gemelle, le foto mostrano solo la prima parte del museo, dove è permesso farle. Qui è dove si possono vedere i resti di alcuni piloni portanti che si sono fusi nel fuoco di quel giorno, alcune camionette dei pompieri distrutte dallo stesso fuoco e anche un muro pieno di quadratini blu, ognuno di questi rappresenta esattamente il colore con cui le persone a cui è stato chiesto ricordano il cielo di quel giorno. Ci siamo poi spostate nella parte centrale, dove non è permesso fare foto. Lasciatemi dire che dovete essere forti e preparati per entrare. Non ci sono solo oggetti trovati nelle rovine, non ci sono solo foto piuttosto crude che potrebbero essere abbastanza per toccarvi, no.  Ci sono anche stanzette dove ascoltare le registrazioni delle vere telefonate fatte dalle persone dentro le torri o gli aerei ai loro cari. Le loro ultime parole prima di morire. Se aveste solo un minuto per dire addio alle persone che amate chi chiamereste? Cosa direste? Ero (e sono) completamente distrutta quando sono uscita e anche profondamente segnata come mi era successo solo una volta prima d’ora: quando ho visitato il campo di concentramento di Dachau. Non fraintendete: questa visita non ha rovinato il mio viaggio, ne tantomeno la mia giornata, assolutamente. Questa esperienza mi ha dato invece una nuova consapevolezza, un nuovo background su cui riflettere nel mio futuro.

We moved to something much more happy, actually a dream coming true. I’m a musical junkie since always I think, I know every musical in this world and in my car I mostly play musical song. So coming to Broadway was everything I’ve dreamed about for an entire life. The Phantom Of The Opera was in my list of favorites and when the first notes played and the chandelier went up on the public I was nearly crying of joy. The actors were unbelievable, the voice of James Barbour, playing Phantom, was unforgettable and the scenography magical.

Ci siamo quindi dirette a qualcosa di molto più felice, un vero e proprio sogno diventato realtà. Sono una drogata di musical da tutta sempre credo, conosco qualsiasi musical sulla faccia della terra e nella mia macchina si suonano soprattutto canzoni di musical. Andare a Broadway era quindi il sogno di tutta una vita. The Phantom Of The Opera è nella mia lista di preferiti e quando è partita la prima nota e il lampadario si è spostato sul pubblico stavo per piangere dalla gioia. Gli attori sono stati incredibili, la voce di James Barbour, nel ruolo del Fantasma, qualcosa di indimenticabile e la scenografia magica.

After the show we went eating at our beloved Shake Shack and we couldn’t resist a walk in Times Square, with its heady lights and the crowd even if it was late night. When our feet were telling to stop walking we finally went back to our hotel, with our hearts full of emotions. Have you ever been in these places? How was your experience? Stay tuned for day 7!

Dopo lo spettacolo siamo andate a cenare dal nostro amato Shake Shack e non abbiamo potuto resistere ad una camminata a Times Square, con le sue luci inebrianti e la folla anche a notte inoltrata. Quando i nostri piedi hanno iniziato a chiederci di smettere di camminare siamo tornate in hotel, coi cuori pieni di emozioni. Siete mai stati in questi posti? Com’è stata la vostra esperienza? Rimanete sintonizzati per il giorno 7!
