# NEW YORK-REGINA'S ADVENTURE: TOURIST ATTRACTION PART 2
I was too sleepy to update so i split them up.
Now i am back to update the rest.
4. Brooklyn Bridge
I never thought I will have the chance to get to walk on the famous 125 year-old Brooklyn bridge..
So glad to have Mark Laiosa, a radio dj aka guidebook writer to bring around..
It's really nice of him..
Know him from my exhibition which he came in as "press"..
It's pretty dangerous to go out with stranger i barely know but..
It's Regina's adventure!
I was scared though...
There was a light drizzle when I reached brooklyn city hall substation..
Was abit sian-ed..
But so glad it din turn out to be a big downpour...
The views from brooklyn bridge is beautiful~~
You will see skyscrapers, new york city & the other 2 bridges - washington bridge & manhattan bridge..
You will also get to see a super mini-sized liberty of statue..lol~~
I was so excited to see it okay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mark was like telling me, "See that thing holding a lighted bulb high up in the sky?"
I jumped in joy when i see it..
Looked small but i know is the statue of liberty!!!!!!!
At least i got to see the mini-sized one..
The real huge one..will have to take a boat ride to get there..so ma fan & time consuming~~~
Magnificent scenery from Brooklyn bridge..
Woolworth standing at 57-storeys tall is one of the top 20 tallest building in New York City..
Its beauty come from its architecture..the building was engraved with 4 different design on each side of the building..
Heard from Mark that the building went for a repair & strict security check since the 911 attack..
The Brooklyn Bridge!!!!!!!
Me, with one leg in Brooklyn & another in Manhattan!!!!!!!!!!!!
Din spend a long time at the bridge..
Thought it was pretty late so headed back halfway the bridge..
Saw this on my way back to the substation..
New York City hall is the oldest city hall in United states..
It still houses governmental functions & as mayor's office..=)
5. Times Square
Went there alone. -_-"
And horrified by the sight of it!!!!
Everywhere is neon lightings & animations!!!!!!!!
The whole place is so lively!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Feel like a country pumpkin meet city liddat~~~!
Even police station used neon lighting -_-
My fav shop in times sq..
M&M chocolate 3-storeys high store!!!!!!!
Go in & ur sight will be filled up with M&M merchandise!!!!!!!
Me & blue M&M
Me & Yellow M&M
After a shopping spree in M&M store..
I was lured this activity along the side of the street...
I nothing better to do & feel like having a little momento from nyc..
So I sat down & got my portrait drawnz..
She said i am very cute & start drawing..^_^
Look like me meh?
I commented to her, "I dun hv such big boobs.."-_-"
She lol-ed. -_-
I carry statue of liberty in my palm ok!
(Saw this near the convention centre)
Interesting way of parking cars..
Saw an accident. No one hurt & both react very calmly...
Beside all these, i can to go to Soho, Chinatown, little italy, Madison Square avenue, Fashion Avenue
Soho & Fashion ave is good for shopping..
In Fashion ave, you will get to shop in the famous Macy departmental store..
Chinatown got NOTHING.
Little italy all food - pasta & pizza.. -_-
But I think New york is a pretty nice country.
People over there is friendly..though some are "over-friendly"..
They can just ask "hey.how are u doing" on the street..
The cashier will cheer u up if u show a gloomy face..
They will offer u help if they see u r carrying heavy stuff..
Apart of that, nyc is very dog-frenly..
Dogs can go shopping with owners!hahahah!
OF coz the weather is very cooling..
But sometime it got to cold & windy..
So windy that it spoilt 2 of my umbrellas..
Walkin on nyc street is very easy..
Their transportation is convenient & easy..
Just hop into subway and u can get to anywhere..
But to get to their substation..there's need a lot of walking..
cold & walk so much = need more food..
That why my nx entry will b featuring on NYC food!
