Short trip in New York and DC

Last weekend I went to New York with Tiffany, Hsing Hong and Scott. We went there by car and we spent four hours to get there. That was my third time went to New York in my life but it was first time for this year. There are so many people in New York and everybody is hurrying. I don’t understand why they are so hurrying and what they are hurrying; therefore, I was so curious about that and that was also my first impression for New York.

We went to Brinkley Bridge, Chinatown, World Trade Center, Time Square and Outlet that nearby New York. When I went to World Trade Center, I felt so sad. There were so many pictures in there and one guy was playing so sad music. I couldn’t image if I were in the Twin Tower on 911 I did not now what I would do. I think 911 was a really sad disaster for USA especially for people who live in New York. Another impression for New York is the subway is so dirty; I think the reason for it is because the subway has built for long time. Besides, New York still is a good place for trip.

Today, I went to DC to see parade with Tiffany, Jennifer, her son and her husband. This was my first time went to Cherry Blossom Festival in DC and saw parade of USA. There were so many people watching parade; therefore it was so crowd. The parade in USA is so different from Taiwan. I can not compare which one is better because each one have their characteristic.

I love these two trips because they are new experiences for me during I live in USA. ^^

Hello, Cindy!
What you did in both NY and DC, and your impression about these trips are interesting to read! I really enjoyed reading it. ^^

The fact that the subway in NY was dirty also surprised me when I visited there for the first time, because it's reasonably clean in Tokyo. But I can still agree with the impression of NY, it's a good place to go!

Also, I'd like to go to Cherry Blossom Festival in DC someday though Japan is a famous place for it! I'm curious about what it's like to see the flowers blooming there...

Cindy, that sounds like a nice trip. Yes, the NY subway is pretty grungy. It is one of the oldest subway systems in the world (I think London's Underground is the oldest). I love the Brooklyn Bridge. It's a historic landmark. Did you see the movie Kate and Leopold? The Brooklyn Bridge features prominently in that movie. I agree that it is very sad to visit Ground Zero. I can remember New York before the World Trade Center was built (yes, I am that old!), but the Twin Towers were a part of the NY Skyline for so long that I think it will always make me feel sad to see it now.

Something I love to do in New York is to take the Circle Line or the water taxis, to see the city from the river(s). It's very interesting (but too cold to do now).

I've never seen a Cherry Blossom Festival parade here. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
