Flying into New York, seeing the horizon of skyscrapers. What a feeling! From the first cab ride into Manhattan, the first time you see broadway before the show starts, or the feeling of getting a semi-permanent neck strain because you're so bedazzled of all the lights at Times Square. So that was all Day 1, two hours after my arrival.
Second day was all about the shopping at 5th Avenue and venturing into the suburbs of NYC. 5th Avenue is where your credit card melts from excessive swiping. All the flagship stores stretching from midtown to downtown New York - H&M, Top Shop, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, Gap, Victoria Secret, Hollister, Banana Republic, and the biggest Macys I have ever seen.
The best thing about New York is that you're never go hungry. On every corner of the street, you will find a street vendor selling hotdogs, pretzels and peanuts. Even walking around in New York all day, I can't help but gobble down yummy hotdogs all day.
Empire State Building from a distance.
The New York Public Library stands right bang on the 42nd steet.
I met up with a friend of mine, and we both had African American food at one of the restaurants at Soho.
I got off the beaten path and headed towards Greenwich Village, for lush greens, cafes and restaurants. Home to New York University and the Washington Square Park, this place gives you the ultimate experience in culture, restaurant and cafes.
At Union Square, the total US deficits is 'proudly' displayed, and ironically nobody really cares.
I feel like I could live in this city. It's one of the most spectacular places I have been to, and I would come here again and again. Now I just need to find a project here so I can move here.
I hope you enjoyed Day 2 of New York City. Day 3 coming up soon!
