Hi cuties! So I put together a little New York City gallery for you. The first day of our visit was super gloomy but we lucked out with the weather the next day, last Saturday. It was absolutely beautiful out so we just walked the streets and I was breathless most of the time! If you are my Pinterest follower, you know I'm all about travelling and new places. I even have a New York board there, full of fascinating pictures. You can't really see everything in the tourist guide in just two days but you can easily manage half of it, if you keep it only Manhattan-ish. As we did. So my goal for the next time is definitely to see Brooklyn (Bridge), statue of Liberty etc.
There's always something you haven't seen yet. And there's always next time. I would love to tell you what I liked, loved, adored and what hooked me. But I seriously don't know where to start when I look back. Lol. The buildings and skyscrapers are much bigger than they seem on the photos. I felt so tiny next to them! You can find various areas and meet different people from all around the world. This city is very multicultural and I loved it! If you love people watching you would feel like home in New York. Wherever you go, you see never ending inspiration! My soul was in euphoria when walking SOHO streets. Fashionable peeps everywhere. Girls and guys bringing style to another level. New York is one of the Fashion Universe that's for sure. All shades of hair colors, very original styles, friendly people hanging out on their porches during the lunch breaks, and plenty of tourists everywhere! Now I understand why Yellow cabs are so typical for New York City. If you took all the yellow taxis from the roads, there would be no traffic! (Maybe.) Haha. I was so impressed by New York that I set my new life goal and that is to live there at some point, even if just for a few months (during the summer most likely - you know I'm one spoiled Floridian girl). Don't get fooled though, as much as the city is beautiful, it can get very expensive if you do the math. That's why usually many people just save their money and visit once a year or so (American and also foreigners). I know people who are basically just making the ends meet with no extra cash on side. They make money just to pay the rent. But on the other hand, they get to live in the most desired place for so many people! And as you know, we sometimes willingly sacrifice things in order to get WHAT or WHERE we want in life. Right? Doesn't really matter whether you just ashamedly thought of your super expensive hand bag or potential living in the most expensive city. LOL. Life is about your own decisions and taking chances!
Have you ever been to New York? What places would you also recommend to visit and are not in the tourists guides? As well as I know Prague very well, you might be a New York resident and have your favorite spots. Please feel free to share them in the comments. My secret tip to share is not to pay for expensive height views but do your research on high hotels in popular areas. You might be able to get this gorgeous view just from a hotel rooftop! Read this hack before you travel to NY!
SOHO is a very inspirational area of NY for those who love fashion and people watching. If you plan on shopping till you drop in New York City, this is where you usually go. Famous brands, world's best designer's shops and lots and lots of good vibes. Maybe you even meet some popular models here! They hang out in here very often, especially during NYFW!
HUGE SKYSCRAPERS! First time I looked up, I thought it can't be even real! I could barely see the top of the building. Holy moly, this is HUGE! Love the way it's build so you can see the wonderful clouds and blue sky in the windows like if it's a mirror!
Gorgeous Chrysler Building is sometimes mistaken for the Empire State Building - if you are a tourist and don't know for sure where is what located. To me, the Chrysler building is even a little bit prettier. Love how it's rounded and decorated on the top, almost seems like a fairy tale tower!
I love capturing weird moments. Birds trying to get on the roof.
Empire State Building. Much bigger than I would expect. Loved the view up when you walk right under the building. It has it's magic for sure.
Oh yeah, I can see some trees are about to bloom! It's about time, right?! Spring has officially come even to this city, yay!
One of the "rooftop" views. How cool is that? If you get to chill like this, you basically chill like a boss. This is why people love New York City. Never dissapoints you. No limits.
Busy New York streets.
Little Italy! This was so amazing! Itialian community has it's own area of food, fun and living! You can taste the real italian atmosphere there, but the cannoli I had didn't unfortunately taste the same like in Italy.
As well as Chinese people have their own part where they hang out. Their typical shops with chinese fashion and all kinds of gadgets and crap (sometimes). Markets on the streets, people shouting that their store is the best... Welcome to a jammed place called China Town in New York.
Look - my favorite shirt. Oh, wait a minute! Forgot my glasses and nearly mistaken this for the real Hello Kitty. Would be a good joke though. I guess.
Time doesn't stop in New York City. It is a very fast paced city. People are in rush to get to work, school, meeting etc. Roads are full of cars all day long. There's probably like 100% chance that you will have someone's head in every single picture you take.
And my head is still in the clouds...
World Trace Center Memorial. † We all remember the day when everything stopped. I was 11 years old, laying in my bed at home with a flu. I was watching my favorite soup opera on TV when the special News interrupted it. I literally watched the buildings fall live. Horryfing, unforgivable.
The Grand Central Terminal is just... timeless. And when you see it for the first time, you get speechless! When getting out of the train I remembered all the movies... Revolutionary Road, Broken City, Unfaithful, Friends With Benefits, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind...
People with they carry baggages are everywhere!
Sex And The City style! These houses are just mind blowing. Would you prefer this or a house in the middle of nature? That is the question!
You can walk into absolutely different areas within a few minutes and that makes the city so interesting!
Ghost Busters! You know what I mean, don't you? (Public Library)
City Hall and sunshine.
And that's it, my friends. Let me know what pictures you liked the most.
Enjoy the Spring! ♥ xoxo
