Ah, the big city! Well, bigger than Chicago.
Although I already live near a big city, New York is it’s own unique place. As of recently I’ve grown past the “city girl” title, but there’s just something about the tall buildings, busy traffic, and fast pace lifestyle that will always be something I can never get out of my roots.
This won’t be my first time visiting the Big Apple. I went once with my older sister when I was 13, but surprisingly don’t remember it too much. Of course being much younger, I didn’t appreciate all there’s to see in New York. So this will be like my first time all over again. I’m not naturally a big tourist, but this is one exception with all the sites and history that lies there, my camera won’t leave my hands. And lucky for me, I’ll have some close friends to show me around the best spots.
It’s been almost 3 months since my trip to Costa Rica, so the gang and I have decided that it’s time for a reunion. A since a majority of the people I vacationed with live in or either close to New York, I thought what an awesome way for all of us to reconnect by spending a full week in the city.
There are tons of things to do in New York. And I mean TONS. Enough that one week is barely enough to see it all. But the plan is to try to see the big attractions, like the Statue of Liberty, the 911 Memorial, walk around Madison Square Garden, and get to witness Times Square during the busiest time of the day. Of course ride a few ferries, see a Broadway, and hopefully catch a Jimmy Fallon show.
I also thought what a good idea it would be to start my first vlog there! And to be honest, I feel it’ll be a little awkward at first holding a camera in front of my face while I walk around the city, but if the selfie stick is socially acceptable, it won’t be so weird and is something I’ll easily get used to. I’m excited to bring my new Canon camera there as well. I feel like New York is the best place to bring a camera.
I can’t wait to experience this city and will have many more posts when I get back!
