NYC recap: Picture loaded
I promise you I have not disappeared from the face of this earth, it has just take way too long for me to settle stuff at home and lab after my trip to NYC.
So here I have a long recap!
“Welcome” written in various languages from around the world at the entrance of Empire State. The line I am pointing at is my mother tongue i.e. Hindi!
Similarly I welcome you on this NYC weekend trip recap:)
First let me begin by telling you that I have been in the US for almost five years now and I have been avoiding my trip to NYC ever since. For our yearly vacations in the past we have been to Orlando, Maui, Paris and back home to India in the past, but on this occassion due to a shortage of time, we decided for a quick trip to NYC! At first I was hesitant but my mind completely changed once I lived and explored the city. Being a big city girl at heart, living and traveling with huge crowds is not new to me. I was at first intimidated about the traveling part in this huge city, but the subways were so much fun. They were easy to follow and were not at all unsafe. I really went into the city with the idea of being robbed at least once, yeah I know I am crazy like that.
But my perception is changed now. I mean obviously it is not recommended to navigate around at night in the alleys or even the subway, but other then that it was a breeze and safe!
We stayed at a hotel called Club Quarters which was at a stone throw away distance from Ground Zero! It was sad to see nothing there 😦
But Times Square will lighten up your moods in a jiff,
Just L-O-V-E-D this place. This place is electric!
The FOREVER 21 mirror screen which was so fascinating!
That’s us on the big screen
Manhattan from the 86th floor observation deck.
Macys from 86 floors above the ground:
Liberty from the Empire state:
I think this is Brooklyn bridge
I am looking like so fluffed here. I guess the hotel shampoo really worked, my hair are never this voluminous!
The husband found the site of two men cleaning a tall building very picturesque.
Biking at the central park, I think this was one of the best decisions we took. It was heavy on the wallet, but there was no way we could have walked the entire central park in 1.5 hours with pictures and breaks!Moreover, we never get a chance to bike back home!
And perfect company,
I am really tired here, just tackled an upslope and it was killer. Begging for some water at this point!
The only thing that was free during the entire trip was the Staten Island ferry!
Closer to liberty,
I got really sick on the last day, still trying to put a happy face for the camera. The eggplant parmigiana from the Italian place the previous night did not agree with me. We were looking for a pharmacy.
We then said good bye to New York. I think I left a part of me there. I get attached to things, places, people quite easily. It was hard to leave!
Good Bye NYC!
Q. Have you been to NYC?
Q. Do you enjoy the calm of a small town or the hustle and bustle of a big city? I have lived in a big and crowded city for 21 years of my life, coming to a calm town like Knoxville, I really enjoy it. It is so good to not deal with traffic and crowd. I am surprised how easy it is to get spoiled.
