Share a highlight of specific memorable experience:
On my first day in NY (it was a Sunday), after dropping off my luggage at the residence in the end of the afternoon, I wanted to do a walk around the area. However, I had also to buy some necessities at the supermarket and I didn’t know at what time the shops would close… So, I asked the saleswoman who told me that it was open 7 days a week and 24 hours a day… What a lively city !
Later in the stay, I experienced to shop at the supermarket at midnight.
