I made it! I got all the way to NYC, got my flight, navigated the subway and found my apartment dragging a broken suitcase. Yes! My luggage of course got damaged on the flight and the suitcase handle failed on me.
My apartment was booked using airbnb which I was a little apprehensive about but the host I stayed with couldn't of been nicer! They had two cute cats, clean adorable room, use of their bicycle and all home facilities including laundry and internet. I felt comfortable the minute I set foot in the house and got to meet some lovely new friends :)
I set off to the City for a wander and headed to Union Square...
This area was a particular favourite of mine during my stay and it had an amazing....
After some shopping and taking in the sights
Madison Square Gardens & Flat Iron District
I took a trip up to the top of Empire State at night time (!)
The view of the city and bright lights is amazing and I am glad I did take the time to see the Empire in the evening. Everying in NYC seemed huge but up in the sky it all felt a little less intimidating! It offered a wonderful views and of course... it was cold so I didn't spend too long up in the air. I will be back shortly for installment numero two... hope you all are keeping well and didn't miss me too much ;)
