July 4th: Independence day part 2

Posted by darbs on August 3, 2009

July 4th – New York City Central Park: Instead of going straight to Hudson River (West side) we decided to start our long walk at the Central Park.

Objective: To watch the July 4th Macy’s yearly New York City community/tourist/family/ tradition/attraction.

Time: Fireworks 9:20 P.M. Location: Hudson River

Part 1 the Introduction: New York City WideAngle tour bus ang background

We  knew that we should be  out of this place before the MACYS FIREWORKS would start.

Big thinkers! Big thinkers! Preservation over profits!
God, how could you not love NEW YORK CITY!
Its diversity… its beauty!

Central Park

Up to this time it made me wonder how the forefathers/pioneers/city planners/local government/civil servants were able to think preservation over profits . They could have had just sold this place to the developers and/or privatize, instead they preserved this part of the city for free public access.

Their legacy left a big mark to this city.

If anybody visited Central Park during this time of year (summer time),  you would surely see the same scenery.

Central Park Skyline

Kids would definitely love New York Central Park’s rocky walk/rock climb/rock descend and all the amenities the park has to offer.

central-park-stonyKids won’t stop running, walking and rock climbing. You better be in good shape to play the game your kid wants to play.

What you see folks is just part and parcel of the Park – tip of the iceberg.

We did not go deeper into the heart of Central Park because we would be running out of time.

You need at least one half-full day to navigate great places in Central Park.

Besides, the limo was waiting (jowk lang), hourly pa naman ang bayaran.

Kaya goodbye Central Park. ..Till next time

The next part would be the  west side story, our July 4th journey.

    Pero sa gihapon kay amahan man sa tradisyon ug wakal sa kagahapon gitunol ang Barok Story. Naa gani baroque inglis Baroque story pa.

    Istorya sa Bato pang relihiyososo. (wa, nako na sya gituyo) somehow de pandedsal “naa diay Barok?” “Barok lab ko Blue eyed” no, that is not for me. Are you dreaming? or Am I dreaming.

    bato mahimong pan. bato nahimong imong itlog. bato nga ipalabay lang.BATO sa utok pulbura is a weapon. tested na sya. bala sa tirador. labay ug sa ulo naigo, nag rhyme sa dugo.

    Pilion nako ang batong nahimong pan para sa tanan. MAO NA ANG MILAGRO.
