The last time I visited New York was in 2008. I’ve been going there ever since I was a child as I have family in Brooklyn and Queens. This time around I went with a good friend Jen who was seeing it for the first time.
We did all things touristy but I had a great time. Jen choose the agenda and as much as I like to plan a trip’s activities it was nice to give that over to someone else and just enjoy.
Central Park is vast and gorgeous…and slightly confusing. Some how we entered at one point and when we exited we had no clue how we got to that side. We went over the park map and couldn’t figure it out.
As we know many shows are set and taped in the city but one of the great things about Sex in the City is how well it showcases New York. The only sets are the inside of their apartments. Jen wanted to go on the tour and I’m glad we went.
Bergdorf Goodman – favourite shopping spot for the SATC ladies
We stopped at 2 other places, the Pleasure Chest where Charlotte learned about the Rabbit and Magnolia Bakery where Carrie and Miranda had cupcakes. As it was a bus tour the majority of my pictures are from the bus and didn’t come out too clearly.
We also visited ground zero. There was an eerie quietness even though there were a lot of people around.
The trip was great and packed with so much, we also managed to get to an off broadway play. People say that New Yorkers are rude, and unkind much like they say of Londoners. I’ve never experienced this once and have an amazing time every time I visit.
