New York, New York!

New York City. A city depicted in so many TV shows, movies, stories and books. Glitzy, dynamic, full of life. No matter how much you've been exposed to it, it still does not prepare you when you visit New York in person!

New York City comprises of 5 boroughs - The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Manhattan is probably the most well-known, being the home of famous sites such as Wall Street, Broadway, Empire State Building, and the fallen World Trade Center. Thus it is really quite the most exciting city I've visited!
Besides the sights, walking through Times Square at night is an experience on its own! The lights, the people, the buildings - they collectively gel into a feeling that no words could quite describe. Thus, as I've mentioned, nothing could quite prepare you as you step into this City that Never Sleeps!

There are other attractions as well. A visit to the Statue of Liberty. Many many shopping opportunities. A walk in the park ... Central Park of course! Catching a theatre show. I'm not quite a city person, but I really enjoyed myself. So if you're a city person, you'll love New York City!
