HOBOKEN BOUND

 Today me and my parents ventured out to Hoboken, NJ, Frank Sinatra's birthplace by the Hudson River with beautiful boardwalk overlooking the Manhattan skyline. Hoboken is very cute town with lots of old brownstones and townhouses, more bars per square mile than any other town in Jersey, tons of small restaurants, stores and parks. 
The Hudson River Waterfront Walkway is a state-mandated master plan to connect the municipalities from the Bayonne Bridge to the George Washington Bridge creating an 18-mile (29 km)-long urban linear park and provide contiguous unhindered access to the water's edge. Just like what they have going around Manhattan. 
Lunch we enjoyed at Johnny Rockets, classic American eatery brought to this century (they serve veggie and soy burgers). I loooove rootbeer floats and every time I visit Johnny Rockets (Jersey Gardens has one as well), I get one.

    Kun sitten valmistuin AMK:sta Espoosta 2004 sain tyotarjouksen hotellista Manhattanilla jossa olin tehnyt viimeisen harjoitteluni ja opinnaytetyoni. En tietenkaan sanonut ei ja muutin tanne pari viikkoa myohemmin. Asiaa auttoi myos se etta olin tavannut erittain mukavan nuoren miehen jonka kanssa jaan elamani edelleen…

    Minun on pitanyt kirjoittaa stoorini tanne tulosta jo jonkin aikaa, mutta en vaan saa lyhennettya sita tarpeeksi. Maybe soon…
