I Love New York



(Click for a better image)


My trip to New York City was absolutely amazing. The weather was great, and I really needed a change of atmosphere. I loved the bright lights in Time Square that made me forget it was night time; the beauty and calmness of Central Park; and the bustling streets during the day.



One of the highlights of the trip was definitely visiting Central Park. I found it incredible that amidst the busy and crowded city, there was a place where people can just relax and get away from everything. As we walked more towards the centre of the park, the outside noise disappeared completely. Sound engineering ftw!



I could have honestly stayed at the New York Public Library all day if I had the time, because it was just that incredible. Guarded by two marble lions named 'Patience' and 'Fortitude' (surprisingly, I didn't take any photos of them), it's yet another peaceful and quiet place in this busy city.

This was the best trip that I've taken in a long time, and now it's back to school and the same routine every. single. day. I uploaded some more photos (the ones that turned out slightly better than the rest... since my camera skills are teh suck) onto my dA account. (No, I will not get a Flickr account; I have way too many accounts to keep track of already. :P )

    :c. Monotony ftw? Yeah, that does sound weird to me too. And you camera skillz are not teh suck. They are in fact the opposite!

    O, and we're buying the New York Public Library. Just thought you might want to know!

    NEW YORK ♥ ♥! Glad that you had an awesome time there. :) I still have to go to the Library some time; it's always beautiful whenever I walk by it. Am going to check out the rest of your lovely photos now!

    I want to go to New York so badly, but my parents are obsessed with the west coast and places that are sunny all the time. :P

    Ah, it would be so nice to visit NY. Certainly not a place I could see myself living but what a wonderful vacation it could be.

    Your photos are great! I'm really taken by the photo of the library. WOW. It's monstrous. I don't blame you for not wanting to leave it. :)

    Great pictures! I'm jealous. I've been dying to go to NYC for quite a while now. I have lived in a town my whole life, and the biggest cities I have been in were Baltimore and D.C., but even they don't compare to NYC. I want to experience the big city!
