…the city so nice, they named it twice… Ok, so I’ve been to the Big Apple for the 3rd time in 3 years now and maybe some mindful readers have already noticed that I’m having a long distance relationship and this is the city where my bf lives and works 😉 By now I don’t feel like a tourist anymore although there are dozens of neighbourhoods I haven’t been to yet. However even for a New Yorker it’s difficult to get to know all parts of that gigantic city and usually life focuses on certain areas in where living, working and entertainment happens. In our case it’s Bay Ridge (Brooklyn) where my bf’s apartment is located, SoHo, where he works, Chinatown – where we usually eat and shop and East Village (thanks to great Japanese and Thai restaurants) – just to name a few…
Grocery shopping or getting a bagel in around the corner – I usually go out in sweat pants when we stay in the hood 😉
I actually don’t know what I want to show or tell you as we didn’t do any tourist stuff or anything exciting. Basically we were just doing ordinary things as running errands, shopping or work (well my bf did). Anyways, we traveled a little throughout the city and I managed to capture some snaps of street art, architecture, landmarks and other random stuff. Maybe you get an impression of how ordinary life looks like in NYC?
I love markets and there’s a little but cute farmer’s market at Union Square!
Industry City, Brooklyn
One of the few sunny days which we spent at Central Park. By that time I walked my feet off like crazy and I was sooo tired x__x
A giant oleander, isn’t that cool?
Unfortunately most of the time it was pretty rainy and chilly but that didn’t harm the impressive architecture…
Chinatown, maybe my favourite neighbourhood in NYC. Last year I also visited the Chinatown in Brooklyn.
Although I couldn’t give you any tips on where to go and what to see, I hope you enjoyed this photo diary (or at least didn’t bore you too much). If you can’t get enough of NYC, I’d be happy if you check out my previous visit. And I can’t wait to show you what we ate on my next post 😉
Have you been to New York? What was your favourite neighbourhood or experience (or even your least favourite)? I’d love to read about it!
