I did it y’all! I marked something off of my bucket list! I visited the great city known as New York and actually stayed for a few days.
This past spring break, me and my family ventured out to the city that never sleeps and tried to take in everything it had to offer. Realizing that is a lot to handle in a few days, we just settled on enjoying Times Square and all of the excitement it had to offer. During my time there I did learn a few things I wanted to share:
- There is no such thing as a slow lane on the sidewalk. New Yorkers put the true meaning of power in the word power walking. What’s the rush people, slow down!
- You must know what you want to order before you step in the sandwich line. The sandwich Nazi does not tolerate being slow to order your lunch. I do have a suggestion though, how about printed menus of your items! It’s hard to read handwritten menus taped to the wall! IJS
- Times Square is a place to see whatever, whoever, and however during any time of the day! It had me completely blinded by the lights! I’m aware that New York is the city that never sleeps, but seriously why were there tatoo faced dudes trying to do something strange for a piece of change on a Tuesday evening?
- The NYPD are actually friendly and will take pictures with you. Now asking them for directions….good luck!
- New York has some great poets in the city. Although they are working hard for donations on the subway, they are truly talented nonetheless!
- The Subway moves at the speed of light and can pack more people in it than Noah did in the Ark! I was impressed but learned quickly that tunnel vision is best when traveling on the subway.
Again I had a great experience and appreciate Krishna, Shawn, ChiChi, ShellyShell and Aeryk for taking time out of their busy schedules to hang with me! Check out some photos below with me and the gang as well some great NY sights!
