My Holiday in New York City | Travel

New York City

Hello! I’m back from New York City and have completed my August Blog Challenge. Today is a photography/travel post about my time in New York City.

I thought I would share my favourite parts of the trip.

Favourite day out: Central Park

New York City


I had a great time with my best friend Freyja. The particular highlight of our trip was the day we spent at MoMa (Museum of Modern Art) hunting down our favourite artworks.

Favourite Building (Interior): Grand Central Station

Grand Central Station – that ceiling! Oh my god!


Favourite Building (Exterior): Chrysler Building


We also did the Empire State Building. Unfortunately by the time we got to the top of the (queues!), all I could think was ‘bloody big building’.

Favourite Snack: Oreos


One of the things that we definitely missed out on during our trip, due to time restraints and exhaustion, was food. We ate at the same place every morning as it was reliable. Freyja is also a vegetarian and whilst not a problem it was just a lot easier to eat in the diner where we knew she could eat.
There was more food on this plate than all three of ours!


Best Breakfast: Cheese and Egg sandwich


The diner we went to did a wonderful egg sandwich!

Favourite shop: Macy’s


I only really went to one – we skipped Bloomingdales – so went a bit crazy in Macy’s. I spent way too much money, but hey I was on holiday.
And we found a GIANT keyboard!


Favourite Photo: Times Square

New York City


This was hard as I have over 400 photos from the trip but this is my favourite. It is a picture of my brother, dad, bestie and me sitting on the red steps of Time Square on our first evening in New York. It was 93 degrees Fahrenheit and we had been up for 18 hours by this point. We don’t look too bad, all things considered.
Even though I wasn’t blown away by the city – the heat and jetlag definitely played a part – I still had a lovely time and would happily go back – but maybe for longer next time.
