Gallery: 20 Ways Berlin Is Different From New York

So I just got back to New York after seven weeks in Europe, four of which I spent living in Berlin. I’d never even been to Berlin before, but my boyfriend told me I’d like it there, and I trust him to know what kinds of things I like, so I went. I liked it so much, you guys. One might even say I loved it. I’d even be willing to live there indefinitely, if I could get a visa and import at least 10% of my friends. I won’t say it’s better than New York, exactly, but it’s different. Sometimes in good ways, and sometimes just in random ways. Here are some of the differences I was able to photograph.

    Not sure if joke or not… but that’s not Neil Patrick Harris?

      From that angle, Oliver Kahn strangely looks like NPH though…

      When I first read that last week, I meant to heckle you, but forgot. BUT since I, too, don’t usually roll that way musically, I will admit that your post inspired me to give it a shot. I will just need drugs… lots and lots of drugs.

    That’s not a playground in slide 11, it’s a bar (they put tables on the sand in the evenings).
    They have normal playgrounds.
