Last Monday I went to the great city of New York for the very first time. Hearing all the stories about it made me fall in love before setting eyes on it for myself, but when I actually did see it, I was even more madly in love. I feel like I belong there. I don't know how to explain it, it's just a feeling. And what an amazing feeling it is.
Seeing as the whole trip was a "theatre" trip, we didn't really do anything that you would think you would do on your first time in NYC. We didn't see the Statue of Liberty, go on the subway, take a taxi, go on Wall St., or see the site of 9/11. But we did see 5th Ave, Times Square, Blue Man Group off Broadway, West Side Story on Broadway, the HighLine, pier 54, the MET, Central Park, Shakespeare in the Park, Chelsea Market, China Town (which I did not like, AT ALL.), the Meat-packing District, the Garment District, and we did lots of driving around and seeing all the neighborhoods. I wish that we'd seen most of the neighborhoods outside of the bus though.
All in all, it was a great trip that is actually kind of a blur. Pictures help though (: I took almost 800 in three days. Don't worry, I wont post them all...
