LaGuardia airport (or at least the Delta terminal) provides iPads for passengers to use while they’re waiting … In addition to charging stations near seats so people can recharge their iPhones, iPads, Kindles, what have you. Very nice!
I bought a Metro card good for seven days worth of subway rides when I got into town Sunday, and I’m determined to get my money’s worth. I decided to explore a little more after dinner. A quick ride from 42nd and Times Square to 59th brought me to Columbus Circle.
Ever since I read about this place in the New York issue of Gourmet Magazine (in 2004!) I’ve wanted to go to Hallo Berlin. The restaurant is located on 10th Avenue, between 44th and 45th, so it’s just far enough from the Times Square area to feel like you’re in a residential part of the city.
The restaurant’s exterior awning proudly proclaims “Germany.”
I had the two wurst plate, which came with sauerkraut, red cabbage and spaetzle. Plus cabbage and potato soup to start. I choose bratwurst and knockwurst.
It was delicious!
It’s hard to get a good photo with my iPhone of the vastness that is the Grand Central Terminal, but this was my attempt. The constellations on the ceiling are beautiful.
