New York City is one of the most photographed cities in the world and man, does it love the camera. It’s a natural, a diva, it’s gonna be somebody one day or rather already is of course. The biggest regret about our NYC trip, besides not having enough time, was not taking more pictures. We were so caught up with just seeing this amazing city and being there that we just didn’t think about taking pictures of everything. Which really is completely okay. There’s been times that we’ve left our camera’s back in the room or turned our phones off just so we can enjoy the experiences without technology being a distraction. It’s nice to unplug every once in while and just live.
Being that we were unplugged for a good portion of our day we didn’t get many pictures of the first city on our trip. That’s okay we completely made up for it 1000 fold once we hit Copenhagen. We did manage to get a few great shots in each of the areas that we visited. I really wish we could have taken a few more of Broadway, but by the time we got there we were seriously hustling to make it back to JFK. That famous street in the Theatre District is just one I have always wanted to explore. However, our time was running out and we needed to get back to JFK to catch our plane. So, at least we got to take a brisk walk down Broadway and I’ll look forward to delving deeper in to it’s history on our next visit. All in all our little day trip to New York City was a great way to kill the 8 hours until our flight. We saw places that we’ve always wanted see and now can say that we’ve been to NYC.
The New York Times. This is the first thing I saw stepping out of the bus station welcoming me to NYC.
The city awaits us!
Through the window…just ignore the advertisement…or don’t if that’s your thing…
Our first NYC subway experience was hot, muggy and kinda smelled. It was after all 95°…
Trump Tower was actually one of the few buildings we went in. Mainly because it was free and everyone said we had to see it.
The Apple Store in Grand Army Plaza. Fun fact Apple did a complete remodel of this store and iconic glass cube in 2017.
Sculpture of William Tecumseh Sherman and decorated General in the U.S. Civil War/
The Naumberg Bandshell is one of the many venues here in Central Park. Mony great orchestras have graced this stage in the 100 years it has been in use.
The New York City skyline from Central Park
Central Park is a great place to bring the family, there are great activities for both adults and children of all ages.
We ran into this lovely lady outside of Central Park. You have to see the Statue of Liberty when you’re in NYC!
Getting your picture taken with this Lady of Liberty is a great replacement for the real thing.
The Pulitzer Fountain – Modeled after the Fontaines de la Concorde in Paris this fountain is absolutely beautiful and a great rest stop.
Times Square and the statue of George M. Cohen
Times Square is a major commercial and entertainment intersection that is must see if you’re visiting New York. At the center is One Times Building, where every New Year millions of people join in watching the countdown and ball drop.
Times Square is the number 1 visited tourist attraction in the U.S. with about 30 million people visiting each year followed closely by Disney World and Las Vegas.
One of the most known features of Times Square would be all the advertisements. These signs give Vegas a run for its money.
The Naked Cowboy. Everyone knows this guy. He is one of the many great performers, musicians and artists displaying their talents in Times Square. If you didn’t know Times Square doubles as an art gallery all year long and at 11:57 pm every night all the signs sync up to display a fantastic show called the Midnight Moment.
32 years old from Cleveland, Ohio. Married to my beautiful wife for 2 years and traveling the world together as much as we can looking for that perfect spot to start a family. If the family comes first, we'll be dragging them around with us! :)
