So my sister Taylor and I went to New York for 2 weeks, she went for work and I came along because New York City is one of my all time favorite cities. I love the feeling you get when you walk down the street and look around and realize that everyone is going somewhere, everyone has a mission they are trying to get accomplished, and so do you. I really love the fact that you can get any kind of food you could possibly want in the city, from chinese to african cuisine and the best coffee. (Plus if you are really lazy you can get anything delivered to you at anytime.)
A highlight of this trip was discovering Roosevelt Island. We were walking down the street one day and as we pasted 59th street we came across a Gondola that took you across the river to an island. I had never seen anything like it in New York City before, so I researched it and found out that you could use your metro ticket to ride the Gondola. So we went one day and the Island was beautiful, it was very quiet and calm (a nice change from the hectic city life) and had a beautiful park and a memorial area. If you ever visit New York, check out this spot!
