New York… New York!

Last month, I spent three days in New York. It was my first visit to North America… South America was done earlier in 2016! I am not sure if I love New York, but I sure am fascinated by it. Here are a few things that caught my eye:

  1. Everything is big – big cars, big trucks, big buildings!

    Big cars and big buildings!

  2. It’s like a slice of the world … there are people for so many countries that it truly is a mixing pot of cultures.
  3. No matter what your budget, you will find something to eat … right from the pocket-friendly hot dog stands to the fancy Michelin starred restaurants.

    Hot dog anyone?

  4. You can find practically any and every cuisine in the city – Indian, Japanese, Israeli, Chinese, Brazilian…the list goes on and on!
  5. The city cool and swanky as well as dark and shady … you choose where you want to go.

  6. The city never sleeps. Regardless of the hour of the day, some part of the city will be buzzing with action.
  7. There is so much glass around Wall Street … gargantuan buildings with glass facades, exactly the way they appear in a Hollywood movie.
  8. Possibly, shopping is what people to spend time? There are malls all around…and the malls are BIG!

  9. The weather can be really nasty – a jacket is always good to have. And …let me tell you…the city is windy!
  10. Billboards and lights … I haven’t seen so many of them in any other city!

More on New York… in the next post!
