New York City - 6

....continued from New York City - 5

The next day, we planned on going to 'Bronx' borough, which is the northernmost part of New York City (located north-east of Manhattan). Before heading to Bronx, we walked around a bit and planned on visiting some things, on the way to Bronx. Since 'Columbia University' was on the way to 'Bronx', we just walked around the university campus and looked around a bit. This University is the one, which annually grants 'Pulitzer Prizes' and its also said to be university affiliated with more 'Nobel Prize' winners, than any other university. Here are some pics of the University campus:

After the 'Columbia University' part, we also looked at this cathedral on 'Amsterdam Avenue' (called 'Cathedral of Saint John the Divine), which is said to be the largest cathedral in the world, although it was never completely built. Here are some pics of that cathedral:

After this, we headed towards Bronx and planned of going to 'Bronx Zoo', which is said to be the largest metropolitan zoo in the U.S. This zoo, like some other well-known zoos has many good things to offer, but whats special about this zoo, is the cool set up of wild life, in natural looking stuff. Here are some pics:

After visting the 'Bronx Zoo', we wanted to see the other boroughs of NYC (which we haven't covered yet). So, we thought of going to the south end of Manhattan and walk on the 'Brooklyn Bridge' and have some glorious views of Manhattan (from the bridge) and then head towards 'Brooklyn' and 'Queens'. By the way, the series 'King Of Queens' is a major hit in Germany.

Regarding the 'Brooklyn Bridge', it is said to be one of the oldest suspension bridges in the US and connects the boroughs of 'Manhattan' and 'Brooklyn'.
Here are some pics of 'Brooklyn Bridge' and the view of Manhattan, from there:

After all the walking, we were tired enough and took the bus to Queens, looked around a bit and took the subway back to Manhattan. This time, we stopped by 'Grand Central' station, since it is said to be the largest train station in the world (by number of platforms) and also because its close to the 'Times Square', where we wanted to shop and look at one of those 'Broadway Shows', which are known, all over the world. Also, we wanted to book a train ticket to 'Niagara Falls', coz we wanted to explore a bit of New York country side, too.

Coming to the 'Grand Central' station, its pretty big and has a lot of restaurants/food-joints in the basement of the station. There were lots of food items that we liked, but we could experiment with only a few of 'em..haha. Here are few pics from 'Grand Central':

After this, we took the subway to the 'Times Square'. Times Square is a popular landmark, not just in the NYC or United States, but all over the world. This intersection/crossroad is at the junction of Broadway and 'Seventh Avenue' and is sometimes known as the 'Crossroads of the world'. Times Square and its surroundings is the most happening place of Manhattan/NYC and a good number of tourists just come to shop around this place. Here's a video:



And here are some pics, from around 'Times Square':

After shopping and looking around a bit, we went to some 'Broadway Comedy Show' and called it a day. That was it, for the 'New York City' trip.
