My first time in NYC, I was with my mom. New York was a new friend at the time, and yet, I learned so many things about the new friend during the time, only 4 and half days with my mom, we walked crazy all around the city, we discovered many new things, shopped and traveled a lot. At the time, I thought NYC has stolen my heart.
This time was with my other half. NYC was still lively, crowded, and dirty, as a friend of mine didn't hesitate to gift it a name that can't be better: "a garbage hole of America". I couldn't help laughing when she said that but also didn't have enough courage to tell her that I actually love NYC, which somehow made me doubt that this time, NYC has returned me half of my heart.
I wished I could have stayed longer in Nyc during this trip. Due to our tight schedule and to catch up with my friend in Boston. We only had exactly a day for the Big Apple, which made everything so rushed, it was like a blink of an eye and suddenly, I had to say goodbye to this city.
I urged hb to try the NYC subway, I explained to him this was something he needed to experience, something about NYC I really like, that you could see many different cultures in one place. I used the dirty trick that It might bring him back some memories of Japan subway. We only had 30 minutes to take the subway from where we are to Woorijip and then be back to where we parked our car. It was rushing, of course. I should change the name of this post to " rush trip" instead of NYC trip. Needless to say, He didn't enjoy the train as I thought :)). But I had fun, I like seeing people doing their own daily things, especially in a bustling city like NYC. There is always something interesting to look at, and with people who love fashion like me, that excitement comes in double.
There are some things that I couldn't cross out on my checklist:
- Couldn't try Mille crepe cake at Lady M. They chose the day we went there to close
- Couldn't try more coffee and eat more stuff
- Couldn't visit Central park again
- Couldn't walk across Brooklyn bridge, We drove by 2 times though :)))))))))))))))))))
- Couldn't stay any longer
also, one important lesson I learned from this trip is: you can't enjoy NYC with a car.
