Finally the day arrived, officially my first trip in States. I choose to go to New York. I booked the flight out of San Francisco on Friday evening. Luckily for me my uncle is at NYC so my stay is pretty sorted out. It was a direct flight from SFO to JFK but to my bad luck my flight was delayed by 4 hours. Finally landed on JFK at 2 am in the morning on the Saturday.

Day 1

I reached my uncle place by by 3 AM after a splendid Indian meal I went to bed. Next day around 11 am we started to explore the city. Since it will be difficult to travel around in car we decided to take the metro. There is no day pass for the metro. Each trip on the metro costs $2.75. You can board the train and can get off at any stop you need.

We took the F Line to reach Church Street/ World Trade Center. Since it is early evening we decide to go to Brooklyn bridge first. We walked through the city hall park

New York has lots to offer but spending just two days at this place will not do justice to it. I will definitely visit this place in future to explore more of its urban side.
