Finally Got ourselves to New York City, wow that took a while, always wanted to go there, and after having done it, I am sorry I didn’t do it sooner!
Amazing Place! The hustle and Bustle on the streets is palpable. This is a city that is more alive that any other I can think of. “Quiet” does not factor in here. I got to have my first piece of “real” Pizza as soon as we got there, priorities people! It was in fact fantastic as promised!
We immediately went about shopping which is its own great experience, to a real New York deli, to a bread store, and a coffee / bakery, and for that matter just about anything you can think of has its own store. You might say whats the big deal with that, its just shopping, well just go to New York and see. Its all these great little stores run by mom and pop, and the kids, and yes cousin Vinney. The concentration is such that within a single block you can have all the things you need within a five min. walk. I live in Dallas which is a great town but its a new town when compared to some others like New York. Its spread out and while most everything I need is a five min. drive, its a five min. drive, walking would be a much bigger deal.
The atmosphere there is like no other, it a really big city and you can feel it, but at the same time its the biggest little small town in the world. Its a walking town and we did a ton of that, but its also a city with a great working transportation system, cabs, subways, boats, and bigger trains for neighboring or at least close cities and towns. You can travel all over this place with ease, and when you do you notice subtle but distinct differences in the different areas, in the architecture, as well as the people, and the atmosphere. Truly a melting pot.
So without winging on any more enjoy some of the imagery I produced from this trip. I will be adding to this Gallery in the coming days, so check back often.
