New York, New York (N40.82 W73.95)

We went to visit Jasmine’s brothers after New Years in New York and, as for our normal city visit, we hiked all over the place. I’m more used to midtown and downtown but, as he has lived in Harlem and Brooklyn, we saw a little bit of a different side of the city. ¬†We went to a couple of good places to eat and drink; our favorites were:

Jin Ramen – In west Harlem, on par with our SF Ramen
Paulaner Brewery- On Bowery downtown, really good beer in a cool location
And a really good grits place in Brooklyn that I do not remember the name of.

As SF Giants fans we had to visit the old polo grounds in Manhatten where the NY Giants used to play. They left up some of the stairs which is cool. In a wierd turn of events it turns out my grandpa was a old NY Giants fan which is cool.

We went super tourist and took our picture on the Brooklyn Bridge. I also photo-bombed someone on the other side.

We went on the Highline for a while and it was pretty nice. I love the repurchased industrial space as park concept.
