NYC: Concrete Jungle Where Dreams Are Made Of

It's been almost a year since I visited New York on a college trip but I didn't have a blog back then and haven't been able to share photos so I thought I may aswell give you all a taste of NYC!

Apart from the 2 hour coach trip, 8 hour flight and waiting around that we went through getting there and back everything was amazing..
Our college was quite lenient and let us go off on our own after little visits as long as we were back at the hotel to sign in at 12pm, considering we were only 16-19 years old letting us loose in New York was a bit of a risk but hey ho we all made it back home safely! Our hotel was a 5 minute walk away from Central Park so it meant we could easily wander down and have a walk through the park, buy a pretzal or you can even get a horse and carriage or be towed along on the back of a pedal bike! Or a few blocks away there was a massive Starbucks, Mc Donalds and loads of food shops and cute little boutiques.

Of course we did all the touristy bits like visiting the Empire State Building, Ground Zero, Times Square at night, Ferry around the Island to see the Statue of Liberty and lots of shopping! If anyone ever gets the chance to go then snap the oppertunity up, everything is so big and bright and beautiful I'd love to go again and maybe even stay for a year or two! I love the accents, Sephora, Victoria Secret, the variety of places to visit and seeing how different everything is.. however, the food was a bit strange. When I ordered Nachos they actually squirted bright yellow cheese onto them from a little squirty gun. Very bizzare! Oh and the taxi drivers are mad! They see a raised hand calling out for a taxi and bam! they will cut anyone up to get to you and find your destination as soon as possible, plus they have touch screen t.v's in the back too!

Have any of you guys been to New York or somewhere that left a lasting impression?
