New York City is a bit of an indescribable place. Actually it’s describable by words such as big, loud, over the top – but I think these words can be used to describe any major city and don’t really do New York justice.
It’s the sheer volume of buildings, the fact that everyday things such as buses, cars, personalities, even sandwiches are twice the size of their London counterparts that make it such a city to behold. If you caught my first New York post you’ll know that we didn’t arrive on the best of evenings (it certainly wasn’t the ‘Trump’ card I was hoping for…) and the following day was pretty dreary as a result.
After the initial shock wore off we managed to fill our time with a whole host of New York City attractions, as well as exploring some new areas that I’d not seen before. On the first evening I was convinced that New York’s shine had worn slightly thin after my first visit about ten years ago, but a few days later and I’m back to frantically planning how much we could squeeze into our few days there.
I have another city guide planned where I’ll go into far more detail about what we got up to, where we stayed and more, so keep your eyes peeled for that. But for the mean time I thought I would share a few of my favourite photos with you. The photos of the Oculus below are some of my favourites from the whole trip – what an insane building just to house a Subway station and shopping mall. There were a couple of photos I was determined to get, some of the more iconic shots you often see of New York City like the skyline from the river and the Brooklyn Bridge. Although I didn’t get a great photo of a pretzel stand (or have a pretzel for myself!) but that’s just another reason to head back some time.
