Travelogue: Day 8 – The Big Apple NYC

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.

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. IMG_0835 IMG_0837 IMG_0846 IMG_0849 IMG_0852 IMG_0854 IMG_0857 IMG_0869 IMG_0873Time Warner Centre was next up for some shopping!

TIMES SQUARE – just standing there, soaking in the atmosphere really felt like being in a movie! There’s something so magical about this place with all the billboards and lights. IMG_0908 IMG_0907 IMG_0911 IMG_0931 IMG_0932

Grand Central Station 🙂 IMG_0979 IMG_0989We managed to cover so many places in a day – which meant we were walking for almost 8-10 hours? Thankfully, NY is quite easy to get around with just the right map!!

Happy Tuesday!
