New York City is no doubt one of the greatest cities in the world.  It is the largest city in the U.S., and is an architectural marvel with plenty of historic monuments, magnificent buildings and countless dazzling skyscrapers. Besides the architectural delights, New York is an urban jungle that has everything to offer to visitors. The city is home to numerous museums, parks, trendy neighborhoods and shopping streets. From Statue of Liberty to Empire State Building, Wall Street to Times Square, 5th Ave to the Metropolitan Museum, everything is so "New York" that people can easily recognize them. 

Getting there ...

There were multiple purposes for this trip:  checking out Linus's new place in Brooklyn; attending Linus and Miriam's wedding in New Haven; helping Iris move her stuff from Pittsburgh to Baltimore; squeezing in a side trip to Shenandoah National Park for Woanyu and me.  To achieve these goals, it was one of most complicated travel logistics I have ever planned and everything worked out perfectly according to the plan :-)

After some rest (breakfast at a bagel place, video chat with my parents in Taiwan, and a Ramen lunch), we moved to a nearby hotel (~10 min walk) to stay for the next 2 nights.

Day 3 (8/9) ...

We checked out the hotel and dropped off our luggage to Linus's place in the morning.  Linus and Miriam were driving back to New Haven today to prepare their wedding while we picked up Iris and went on our glamping adventure on Governors Island in New York.

Next...

We went back to New York City and went to B&H again because my tripod (only 2 months old) broke.  I was planning to buy a new tripod, but the staff at the tripod department at B&H was so nice and patient that he actually got the tools and helped me fix the tripod!  It was a really nice in-person in-store experience that no internet shopping can replace.  After a delicious Korean BBQ lunch recommended by Iris, we moved on to our next destination for the most important event for this trip:  Linus and Miriam's wedding.
