In one of my last posts from my not-so-recent-anymore trip to USA, I’ll show you photos from two short one-day trips away from NYC. The first set of photos is from Montauk, on the tip of Long Island, while the second part is from New Haven in Connecticut. There are probably more differences than similarities in these two places, one being a vacation beach party place and the other a very traditional university town, but hopefully you can still enjoy seeing them together.
Starting near the train station in Montauk from the view of a small seaside restaurant.
Lobster roll with sweet potato fries for brunch, a good start of the day.
The hike after brunch took us all the way from the centre of Montauk to the tip of Long island through a series of parks…
..until we finally reached the lighthouse on the top photo and the small beach full of these man-made rock figures.
Another view of the lighthouse on the way back from the beach.
Back to the main beach in the centre of Montauk, surrounded by many restaurants and bars. Unfortunately it was still too cold for dipping in.
Changing suddenly the states and the atmosphere, here we’re seeing the entrance to one of the Victorian gothic buildings in Yale university in New Haven.
The fittingly gothic cemetery is probably the second most popular tourist attraction after Yale university.
Another typical Yale building with the official university logo on tip.
Unfortunately it was a cold rainy day with very few people on the streets in New Haven. On the other hand the weather probably helped this little squirrel to comfortably roam the streets.
Another rainy shot of the Yale campus, looking very similarly to its overseas analogs in Oxford and Cambridge.
The house of the head of that particular college. I guess Harry Potter fans wouldn’t be surprised seeing one of Harry’s teachers coming out that door.
