So it’s evident my sister and I ate a lot during spring break BUT we also did explore and walk a lot. I think the best way to get to know a city is to get lost in it so that’s exactly what we did- we explored every nook and cranny of New York (something I usually do anyway). When you take the time to walk around you see things you would usually miss if you took a cab or subway. We must’ve visited every neighborhood in fact and to think we did all of this in just about 4 days…
Let me show you sides of New York you might not have seen before. The places I showed my sister so that she could fall in love with New York as much as I have (and she’s not a city girl.) They say a picture is worth a thousand words so here they are:
(All photos taken by me as usual, this time no filter. Please credit!)
I told you we walked a lot. Trust me, my sister passed out the moment she hit the bed every night!
Oh New York. Even though you can be terrible at times, I really do love you.
“New York remains what it has always been: a city of ebb and flow, a city of constant shifts of population and economics, a city of virtually no rest. It is harsh, dirty, and dangerous, it is whimsical and fanciful, it is beautiful and soaring – it is not one or another of these things but all of them, all at once, and to fail to accept this paradox is to deny the reality of city existence. -Paul Goldberger”
