Why I love NYC ?
I love New York because of the picturesque buildings, wonderful sights of the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge and Williamsburg Bridge. The city of lights that is C’est Magnifique! The Chrysler Building and the Empire state. Lady Liberty,. I love watching Broadway. I love to go to Museums and shop.
I’ve always wanted to try the French macarons of Laduree.
The fast paced lifestyle of every New Yorker has always been something that I yearned for. Growing up watching films :Who could forget the movies “An Affair to Remember” “You’ve Got Mail” “Serendipity” “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”. And the hit Tv series Gossip Girl.
New York.. Concrete Jungles where dreams are made of… start spreading the news..
It has been a place where a lot of people have been featured and where dreams are made of.
The City that never sleeps.
It was the end of Spring and the start Summer, when I was gallivanting around the streets. I came to a realization how surreal it was to actually be in the city where people began to start living their lives. Taking pictures was a highly important spectacle to capture every moment there. “Pictures worth a thousand words.”
During my first few days in NYC, I stayed at the Chelsea area somewhere in Manhattan. Not so many places to eat or dine out.
If you do want to dine out somewhere decent. To name a few good places to eat at .It’s good to try Applebee’s, Brooklyn Dinner, Serendipity III, and Heartland Brewery, Carnegie Deli etc.
If you are familiar with the movie Night at The Museum, I did go around that Museum, The Museum of Natural History.
I also rode the virtual sky ride in the Empire State Building and enjoy the view. Remembering the movie, Sleepless in Seattle and An Affair To Remember where the lovers had to meet on top of the building.
Who could forget the Television series F.R.I. E. N. D. S and How I Met Your Mother showcasing the beautiful places and sceneries around New York.
I went to D.C.
When I got back to NYC, I stayed near the Rockefeller Center.
It’s near the NBC studio. I just saw Chris Brown dancing from the back singing “Forever”.
I had the chance to join the Behind the scenes of the Broadway Musical “Wicked”. I want to watch “Wicked” on Broadway when I do come back. During my last few days in NY, I was able to enjoy “Memphis”. It was totally an awesome Broadway production.
