DAY 9: MANCHESTER, MA TO MEDFORD, NY

Today, our ninth day, we said hello to The Big Apple. Upon arrival, in New York, we visited Danbury Volkswagen. This dealership had an airfield behind it and they were we asked permission to park by one of the jets and take a photo next with our ID.4. In classic New York style, we saw a stretch limousine. Next, a quick stop was made at a very stylish Electrify America station equipped with neon accent lights. We entered the Bronx, NY, and got acquainted with some nice gentlemen from Teddy VW. As we experienced the big city, we made our way to the west side of Manhattan to visit Manhattan VW. And they showed us immense hospitality by taking us to the financial district by way of a black ID. 4. It was an incredible experience to be driving the ID. 4 through the New York streets passing through canyons of skyscrapers. We then traveled underwater using the Holland Tunnel, the first mechanically ventilated underwater vehicular tunnel, and landed in New Jersey. We met near the Hudson River and spoke with Kuehne + Nagel Inc. and the New Jersey City Council offered us an amazing spot, with views of New York overlooking the Hudson. Making a loop, we were back in Manhattan, and we spotted a man riding an electric powered bicycle pulling a trailer and we felt this was the future of transportation.  We saw the typical New York steam creeps up from under the city. We noticed that in this big city, New York has grown to the stage of parking with different levels. The streets of New York were amazing. There were many different shops and restaurants such as the Big Apple gift shop. We also noticed that a lot of restaurants have moved a lot of seating to the street. At end the day we had dinner at Hauppauge, a fabulous old fashioned diner.
