Couchsurfing New York City and Salsa Dancing

After my 2-day whirlwind walking tour of Philadelphia, it was time to catch a $10 Boltbus to New York City!  Upon my arrival, I knew to take the N train from Penn Station and what stop to get off of, but I didn’t even have the address of my Couchsurfing host…Maria.  She was picking me up at the train station at 9:00pm, so I had to have faith and trust.  It was a short drive to her family’s home in Brooklyn, where she is staying temporarily.  They are Italian and although her father is a Chef, her mother made some outstanding meals!  And she has a to-die-for Cappuccino maker!

I did most everything on my own in New York, but one evening, Maria and I went out Salsa dancing and to a neighborhood bar.  This is Maria…


Here’s the Salsa dancing club in Manhattan and that’s Maria dancing…


Maria drove that night, but the remainder of my time there, I took trains or walked, so I thought I’d throw this photo of one of the train stations in.  I’m trying to remember all of the trains I took, the N, D, 5, 6, 7, C, F, and the 1, 2 or 3 (I don’t remember).  I did pretty good finding my way around without a train station map.  They were impossible to find.


Tomorrow is the beginning of my first day in New York City…I started in Greenwich Village!
