My first impression of New York was that Manhattan Island is so plain. I can easily understand where I am because of the number of avenues and streets. I can move easily by using the subway. Then I could go to Yankee Stadium by myself. I couldn’t see a ball game but I could buy a Yankees cap.
The second impressive place was the Metropolitan Museum. I had decided to visit there because I had considered that there are real Japanese artworks there and I could know how to collect Japanese art after the Edo Period. It was a good experience for me to watch some real Japanese art. It was worthwhile to visit the USA. But I want to visit the Boston Museum most.
I have had the image of NYC from some songs. “Marry in the Fifth Ave.” “Washington Square”, etc. When I visited Washington Square near Blue Note I was so excited that I was walking the parks where I have heard and sung. In the parks, young people look so smart. A family with a little child was playing there and someone was playing jazz music.
While I stayed in NY I couldn’t understand why US people landed at NY. I want to know why many people landed in NY and I was impressed with the cliff of the Hudson River. I want to take up about it on “Bra Tamorri” why NYC became the center of the US and the world.
