NY Day 15: August 28th 2011

Yesterday I was very lazy, for not posting the next NY diary day… But I wasn’t really lazy at all, I painted our kitchen table in light green and whitened a very big canvas I found on the street the evening before… So pardon me :)

Dear Diary,

I am back in Germany since almost 4 weeks and now I am finally catching up with you for the last week! Not that this sunday would have been full of impressions and this was the reason for not writing… It was the MOST BORING day I had in NYC, and I really didn’t think I would be bored at all.

Irene kept us inside until 4pm but it wasn’t as bad as everybody expected and feared… And I was checking since 5pm like minutely if the subways will run the next day, for I really(!!!) wanted to get back to school and Manhatten &the other boroughs!

NY Day 14: August 27th 2011

I am caught in Brooklyn.

just on the other side of the street where I live… the christmas decorations are still/already up

Since 12pm so high noon the subways are all closed, from 5pm on the bridges will be, too. It is raining, but not as much as I expected for a hurricane.

my neighbourhood

The New York Government evacuated people living in Zone A, so Lower Manhatten and so on. We live in none of the zones luckily. I have a new roommate, Madleine from Germany. She is nice and we have some kind of fun together. But it is kind of boring hanging all the time in front of my laptop and do “usless” things.

an old cinema

I want to go outside! But it’s too dangerous :(

this is what panic-buys look like

I chatted with most of the New York friends but also with some friends at home, whom were calming me. I am finally doing some stuff I didn’t have the time for. Organizing fotos I took, writing post cards, writing even into this (but I only had to catch up since thursday). I use my time, I try to…

My panic-buy was like: big pack of oreos, pringles, spaghetti & tomato sauce, microwave popcorn and a can of Heineken beer :)

NY Day 13: August 26th 2011

I got up very early for I wanted to go to the Lower East Side & East River Park taking pictures and shooting some movies but I was already too late for the nice morning sun was already too high!

I like the diversity of the picture

Williamsburg Bridge <3

I went to Delcancey Ave to get the J train to Jamaica Centre, yeah I have been to Jamaica, wouldn’t guessed that at all! There I took the R train to get to school. I went with myclass to Coney Island to see the New York Aquarium (I hate Aquariums) but I liked the seahorses!

Then we went to the amusement park and the beach, the others rode the Cyclone, I only watched and took some photographs.

some people forgot to take their photobooth pictures

one <3

I was all alone when I was walking on the shore and even walked the Pier. At this time the lifeguards were already getting people out of the water, for it became too dangerous because of the upcoming hurricane.

Maybe a message in a bottle

My first(!!!) time at the Atlantic Ocean Coast

This stereo on the pier was playing Black Eyed Peas on repeat “whoohoo”

I took the train back to Brooklyn (well I was before, but now I got to my host family), changed and went straight to Manhatten were I waited a long time for the others. When Jenny arrived we went together to Fresh Food Fast and had dinner at 10pm… We also had great shakes- delicious! (Tropical: strawberries with pineapple and yoghurt)

When we met the others at the Counter I got very tired so I just said goodybe to Francesco for he would leave some of the next days (his flight on saturday has been cancelled!), we went to the huge M&M store and got very tired home! And on the subway ride home I made a very very big mistake, I tell you :P

I feel asleep, what was not so good for first, but second I lay my head on a stranger’s shoulder and THIS is a NO GO in a city like New York… Did I tell you, that no one touches another person on the subway in New York or just tries to, no matter how full the train is? If someone accidentally touches someone he instantly excuses or he or she will be in trouble… So when I notice I lay my head down I woke up and excused myself…
