There’s No Place Quite like New York

In 2005, my sister was living in Manhattan, attending graduate school at Columbia University. I was fortunate enough to visit her on multiple occasions, to which I saw some of the most amazing monuments, buildings, and memorials. As many times as I visited, my sister and I made sure to take some great photos to hold us over until we get to visit again.

Overlooking Central Park

The amazing Empire State Building

A view of the Empire State Building from On Top the of my favorite places in NYC!

The New York City Harbor at Night

The Rockefeller Center Tree...truly one of the most beautiful things I've seen...and what a day that was!

This was just down the street from my sister's apartment...yes, it is the "Tom's Restaurant" that you see in the least the outside of it.

I do have more photos but unfortunately, I can't load them onto my computer right now. New York City is a completely different kind of experience, especially from a girl who has grown up in Arkansas her entire life. It's some place that I love so much and believe everyone should visit at least once in their life. From visiting Ellis Island to walking through Central Park to standing in the presence of where so many perished on 9/11...New York City is quite a place and one I hope to visit time and time again.
