New York – the land of concrete dreams.
It is every person’s wish to visit New York at least once. And while it may be a sight to behold, it might not be JUST what you expect.
- Times Square is a neon, rainbow-colored fiesta to the eyes. There is nothing like it, as the lights, colors, and people will make you gasp in wonder. But, be careful not to stray to the corners and curbs. It is where your sense of smell will start to tingle in the worst of ways…
- No matter where you come from and what cuisine you imbibe as your own, nothing compares to the wondrous flavors of truck food in New York. From delicious hot dogs to their world-famous gyros, to churros and warm bubbly waffles, a tourist’s experience is not complete without them – especially the saucy, spicy and fulfilling lamb gyros!
- The inexplicable feeling of being minuscule, when you look up to the high rise buildings with their shiny glass walls or slabs of concrete is grandiose. The different types of architecture and design: turrets, towers, pillars, tiled roofs, gilded gates and mosaic walls is impeccable. Truly, there is nothing that New York falls short of.
- Not only do the buildings send shivers down your spines, but so do the enormous variety of people and cultures. You come across Little China, Little Italy, Little India. The millions of faces you come across in your pedestrian life, from distant cultures in wonderful and exotic garments, is a sight to behold.
- Forget the touristy spots, the little wonders lie in the spots you discover yourself. You’ll see a café selling a deliciously steaming cup of hot chocolate, and an old bookstore with sacred volumes found nowhere else. You fall for pavements, with trees, with the different kinds of stalls you see, with people going about their day. You visualize different musicians performing instruments you only see on TV. And you will come across parades that make you feel like you’re a part of something bigger; something like New York.
