New York: Revisited


Hey lovelies!

Sorry to break up the beginning of my many Summer-related posts here on Not Vicarious but I'm going to put in this throwback post, simply because the pictures are just too stunning not to show you - if I may say so myself hahaha - plus who doesn't like a little bit of reminiscing?

My trip to New York started off perfectly by checking into the modern and eccentric looking Novotel New York hotel that is situated right on the cusp of Times Square. The location couldn't have been better and I genuinely loved venturing out into the pretty streets to see what the city had to offer to me the second time around. Thankfully I got to experience a whole lot more, including a day out to Greenwich Village, a quick trip to the High Line and an even more exciting visit to the big Target in Brooklyn...I finally made it to one guys!

There is a lot that can be said about the Big Apple. Some view it as incredibly overrated and yet, despite this, I still don't think that it detracts from the stunning architecture, the luxurious parade of fashion and beauty stores, and the endless mix of the natural and human world. The concrete jungle still finds space to house many gorgeous parks, such as Central Park and my new favourite Bryant Park, and presents plenty of alternatives to the usual tourist attractions, so much so that the opportunities become endless!

The best part about getting to travel to New York in February was that I was able to be there for Valentine's Day and whilst it wasn't too great being away from the one I love, it was still so nice to see people celebrating in their own little ways. There were loads and loads of chocolates, red hearts and huge teddy bears that I was seriously considering buying even though they probably weigh ten times more than me! I had such an amazing time and although, by the last day, I was so tired of walking everywhere, it all felt worth it for what I was able to see in the relatively short amount of time that I dedicated to this large city.

I hope that you enjoy looking through the pictures I took, maybe it will convince you to take a trip across the pond!

XOXO
