New York certainly didn't disappoint me....but at the same time it was kind of weird to finally make it to the city of all cities after having been to so many other major ones first. Because of that, it was hard for me not to have some of the uniqueness of other cities pop out more for me than what New York had to offer. In all honesty, had the second and third days of my trip occurred before my first one I would have been wowed immediately...and not just for the things that tourists love...but for the quieter parts of the city as well. Also a lot of my experiences of the city was colored by the experiences I had there and well...I'm not really going to share that on a public blog. But all in all with the art, architecture, food, entertainment and of course central park (which was my favorite of all) I definitely fell in love with it and would put it on a list of places I'd like to return to one day...I just have to explore a lot of other places more before I can return.
So what did I do while I was there? Well..........as a lover of Breakfast at Tiffany's I had to stop there. But...not the one on 5th Avenue..I couldn't find it. We opted instead for the one on Wall Street....I pretty much felt too poor to even go in there, but we did anyway. We saw ground zero...but unfortunately, it was under construction so we didn't get to see any of the cool memorials that are there right now. Saw the Brooklyn bridge, Chinatown (I should probably see the movie with the same name too...but the location itself probably freaked me out enough haha), Little Italy, The Empire State building. How many movies can you name that are set there? King Kong, An Affair To Remember, Sleepless In Seattle. Equally, if not moreso iconic to the world and film, we saw the Statue of Liberty. Thank you, Cloverfield, Ghostbusters and of course Planet of the Apes for that one. Oh...and we saw Times Square too. In fact, we may or may not be on the Rachel Ray show eating hot dogs sometime this fall.
But back to NY...what are your favorite New York t.v. shows/movies or memories? I've barely covered the tip of the iceberg with famous films set there! It's definitely a place loved by film that's for sure! So let's hear some of the ones I've missed.
