I visited New York for the first time this year to see my two older sisters. Since I’ve never yearned to visit the Big Apple, I didn’t either have high expectations. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised – New York is a really cool city. I fell in love with absolutely everything; the blinking billboards, the skyscrapers, the charming townhouses and the beautiful bridges that link Manhattan and Brooklyn together. 

New York has it all in a delightful mix of nature, skyscrapers, fine architecture and cool attractions. Everywhere I went, there was something new for me to see. From the busy blocks of Times Square to the laid-back neighborhoods of Brooklyn – New York never stops surprising you. 

If you’re looking for some New York inspiration, then this is a great list for you.
