New York, New York!!

Wow, New York... Such an interesting, diverse city... Seriously, there's so much to do there!
Here's a little synopsis of what I did on my first of hopefully many visits to New York City.

I wasn't so impressed with Times Square... Really, I didn't see what the hype was all about. But then my housemates told me that I really have to see it at night. That's when it really shines.* Next time...


Bryant Park...



The New York Public Library may be my favourite place in New York... Though I have to see the whole city to be certain of that fact and I'm sure Central Park will also be incredible. There's just something about libraries, even those without so many books. On my to-do list: Spend a whole day reading here.





Paul's brother and his girlfriend kindly took care of me for the rest of the day. We started at Grand Central Station...


Then a visit to 5 Pointz, which is all kinds of awesome!



And then, and this is pretty awesome, we went to the opening of the MoMA PS1 Warm Up... Sort of. We actually went to a party overlooking the Warm Up. It was different and so fun! We were watching all the different characters at the gig and they were watching us! For an idea of how awesome it was, that's me in the bright red dress!


And we walked the High Line ...



And got to see this awesome piece of graffiti...


And then I went home and slept like a baby after such a long day. It's so lovely to be so close that I can spend a whole day there and still get home to my own bed!

I can't wait to visit again!!
