NEW YORK CITY. The name alone brings to mind images of the statue of liberty, David Letterman, Central Park, “sleepless in seatle” and the unfortunate events of 9/11. Well, those are some of the things that spring to my mind when I think of one of the busiest cities in the world.
It had always been a dream to visit New York City. All I percieved NYC to be was what I had seen, read and heard on TV, newspapers, magazines and on the movies. So, at the beginning of May 2012, I made my way to the city which I thought I knew well. But how wrong I was…
I mean, yes, the statue of liberty, times square and so on, look pretty much like they do on TV, in the movies and in the magazines. But I fell for the other side of NYC.
The people of New York. It’s so hard to explain. There was just a feeling of community in the air. Like a friend I hadn’t seen for a while. It’s almost as if I was in a small town in rural China. It’s one of those places that you visit, and you just feel at home.
There are a lot of places I have had the pleasure of visiting in my life. Places I have loved. But the New York I visited not too long ago, is already enticing me back to explore and discover some more. But until that time, at least I have some fond memories and photos of a city which I will never forget and dream of until I get the chance to visit once more.
