Visiting NYC was on one of my travel bucket lists and I’m so glad to have visited! The city lights, billboards, apartments, towers were just as how they were pictured in the movies, drama serials – glamorous. These shows painted the perfect picture of NYC. But what weren’t pictured were the subway stations, the houses in the suburbs, which are essential to getting the full picture of NYC. This trip made me realize how I was accustomed to the slow pace of life after being in Vancouver for awhile now, and NYC was a tad too crowded and busy for me! I still loved sightseeing there though, it was nice to see what was on screen in real life – its like living in a dream.
The Upper East Side – front porches, doormen, beautiful apartments buildings.
Then we made our way to Central Park! We went on the perfect sunny day so the greenery really stood out. 🙂 We were there on a weekend too which explains the crowds! They say that Central Park is the saving grace of New York, and after being there, I think it really is! A lovely park in the middle of Manhattan is just what this city needs amongst all the skyscrapers and yellow cabs. Time Warner Centre was next up for some shopping!
