New York and its hustle bustle

New York, located in the United States of America, is one of the most populated cities in the world. It has been described as the cultural, financial, and media capital of the world, and has a significant influence on commerce, entertainment, research, technology, education, politics, tourism, dining, art, fashion, and sports. It is also the most photographed city in the world. Home to the headquarters of the United Nations, New York is an important center for international diplomacy.

Honestly, if there was one place that I could escape to, it would be New York City. I’ve always felt this strange connection with this city. It’s probably because some of my favorite TV shows, movies and songs are based on and revolve around the city. It’s ironic really how I want to escape to the most busy and chaotic city in the world. Not only is it my dream vacation destination but also the city that I would like to reside in the future. I’ve never actually been there but thanks to today’s technology, I can vaguely imagine myself there. I see myself in the middle of a very noisy street , people in jackets reading through papers , some talking on their phones , some listening to music on the sidewalk and yellow cabs and cars in all sorts of colors swishing past me. I imagine myself looking down at the traffic jams and crowds of people from one of New York’s high rise buildings. Just thinking about this city makes me feel giddy with excitement.

Cafes I can imagine myself at, with a book and coffee…

  1. LITTLE COLLINS

This busy Midtown shop is an oasis of Australian-style coffee in a neighborhood otherwise glutted with Starbucks and other chain shops. The coffee is excellent: The flat whites, cold brews, and pour-overs are mini masterpieces but the draw is the food, from the extensive breakfast menu to sandwiches, salads, and pastries. I can imagine being here all the time!

2. INTERLUDE COFFEE AND TEA

A tastefully minimalist coffee shop that has matchas and pastries as well. The shop is small and serene with comfy chairs and marble counter-tops. On chilly days, children of all ages or adults will want to order the single-origin hot chocolate. If you can’t find me anywhere then you’ll definitely find me here.

Places that are a must visit!

  1. STATUE OF LIBERTY

“The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World” was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States and is recognized as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886. It was designated as a National Monument in 1924.he statue is a figure of Libertas, a robed Roman liberty goddess. She holds a torch above her head with her right hand, and in her left hand carries a tabula ansata inscribed July 4, 1776 in Roman numerals, the date of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. A broken shackle and chain lie at her feet as she walks forward, commemorating the recent national abolition of slavery.

2. EMPIRE STATE BUILDING

This is probably one of the most famous buildings not only in New York but in the world. It remains one of the most distinctive buildings in the United States and is one of the best examples of Modernist Art Deco design. It isa steel-framed skyscraper rising upto 102 stories that was completed in New York City in 1931 and was the tallest building in the world until 1971. Count me in if you decide to visit this building!

My favorite TV shows that center around New York

  1. FRIENDS

Who hasn’t heard the name of this iconic sitcom? This series revolves around the lives of six friends who find love and work all in one city: New York. This shows gives its viewers a glimpse of what it’s like living in New York. It covers everything from the hardships faced in the city to the best things available and found in the city. If you are one of those ‘ones’ who think that New York is overrated, then this show is a must watch.

2. BROOKLYN NINE-NINE

This shows revolves around the functioning of the NYPD. This show truly potrays the current police conditions and balances it with amazing humor and dialogue delivery by the actors. It truly shows how dangerous living in New York can be but at the same time proves the efficiency of the police department in solving crimes.

I honestly can’t wait to go to New York and then come back and look at this blog and feel nostalgic!

“ONE belongs to New York instantly. One belongs to it as much in five MINUTES as in five YEARS”
