New York port information

New York is one of the "Bucket List" cities like London, Paris, Berlin, etc..  However we did not see much on our visit as excursions to turn-around voyagers were not available when we came, and we were at Brooklyn terminal rather than Manhattan.  So I can't help much but Tom has done one of his port guides.

The "Big Apple" is the USA´s most charismatic city and really does have something for everyone.  Stroll through the gorgeous gardens of Central Park, right in the centre of Manhattan, get a taste of local life in the quaint cafés of bohemian Greenwich Village, or star spot in the boutique and restaurant-lined streets of the sophisticated SoHo and TriBeCa districts.

There are mnay famous places such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art or enjoy the shopping spree of your life at Saks, Macys, Bloomingdales or Century 21 on Cortlandt Street, which is the worlds largest discount warehouse and near that other must-see, Broadway.

Since the Xenophobist Trump has now taken over it is unlikely that we will get to see all this.
