I spent a couple days walking around New York – and as anyone will tell you – it’s not nearly enough time to see all this city has to offer.
I made it a point to check out the financial district, central park, brooklyn, soho and some of the more iconic spots most everyone has heard of.
I had just gotten into town after Fashion Week, and while I was walking around SoHo, it felt like I had stepped into a scene from Zoolander. EVERYONE was good looking enough to be a model and dressed to the T. I could have spent the whole day in this part of town, (especially because of the cobblestone streets) but unfortunately I was a little pressed for time so I only had a few hours.
I couldn’t help but to ask a few of the people in the neighborhood to take a photo, and this one group of 2 guys and a girl seemed to be the epitome of the culture. I snapped a few shots of them on the cobblestone road, (see below) and then talked to them for a few to see if they knew of anymore cool/fashionable spots I should see while in town.
The girl responded in a voice that was like a cross between an english accent and a girl from the valley, “I don’t think there’s aaanywuhh more fashionable than soohohww”. Coudn’t have said it any better!
While I was in town, I stayed with Hally, my friend Ryan’s friend who lives in the financial district. Over the week I had gone out with her & the roommates to some of the local spots, one in particular stood out more than the others. There’s a place called, “Rice to Riches” that was apparently featured on Sex and the City. I got a kick out of it because every Christmas my family holds a Danish tradition with rice pudding in which the person who discovers the whole almond wins a prize. I’ve never had rice pudding aside from Christmas, so it was cool to see it available to the masses.
New York has instantly become one of my favorite places to visit, and there’s so much to see & explore – I’m just not quite sure it’s possible to see it all. If I get the chance to go back anytime soon, I think it would be awesome to go during the winter. The stores, the ice skating rink at Rockefeller center, and central park would be worth it to see on their own.
