Day 42 - New York, New York, USA

Day 42 – 20th July 2005 -5:00 GMT

Decided we would head to Coney Island in Brooklyn, so Jill and I got the subway which took around 90 minutes, and ended up in an area which looked like a run down version of Blackpool, but once we had passed the rusting fairground rides we got onto the boardwalk and found miles of golden sand and a beach full of people having fun.

We walked along the boardwalk and along the Pier stopping for food and drinks on the way, we then walked back along the sand which was so hot you could only stand still for a few seconds.

The temperature is still in the mid to high 30’s. We caught a subway back to central manhatten and then walked around central park,

looking at the lakes and the John Lennon Memorial Gardens, Strawberry Fields. Then headed back to the hostel where we had to do our washing. We headed out again around 7.30pm and caught the subway to Time Square and walked to the Rockafella centre

and then into Central Station, then caught another tube to Spring Street and walked through little Italy where we stopped for dinner. We then caught a tube back to Time Square
