You've probably heard Jay Z's song Empire State of Mind.
Stay tuned for more pictures... This is going to be New York Week here at Sexta-feira.
In New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made, oh
There's nothing you can't do, now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you, let's hear it for New York
New York, New York
Personally, I never really understood why New York is so overrated. It's dirty, noisy, hot and humid, crowded, ridiculously expensive. The first time I was there, it was December, so the cold eliminated all the smells. Now, at around 35 degrees Celsius, walking around was a real test for the nose (especially if it's super sensitive like mine); urine, vomit, garbage, cars, perfume, sweat, food... it was a nightmare! New Yorkers must really be immune to all kinds of diseases with that kind of daily exposure to filth.
Anyway, ignoring the heat as much as we could, we managed to do quite a few things during the week we spent there.
Today, I'm going to show you snapshots of Central Park, which is a real oasis and a shelter from all the city madness.
