I HEART NEW YORK

New York City exudes an energy like no other city in the world. Each time I visit, I discover new things to experience as I relish the many things that I have delighted in before. But there is always something new.

THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE

The world’s first steel suspension bridge—is a beloved landmark and a cultural icon of NYC. It’s been celebrated in art, poetry, song, and on film. The mastermind behind the bridge called it “the greatest engineering work of the age… a great work of art.” And we have to agree!

GCT filled with immense beauty, incredible history and hidden secrets such as the Constellation Ceiling is painted in reverse! To stand in the center of the main hall during rush hour is an interesting experience- commuters streaming vigorously around you, sunlight beaming in through the massive windows, announcements booming on the PA system. It truly is a NY experience!

FLAT IRON BUILDING

Another architectural beauty among New York’s many buildings. Built over 100 years ago and at that time one of the highest in the city. Located right by Madison Square Park where we enjoyed a juicy Shake Shack burger!

It is a bizarre feeling, touring a memorial that is dedicated to an event in recent history — not from 40 years ago, but present time. I was a senior in high school and remember the day and the aftermath clearly. And yet, 9/11 is not a past event; terrorism and acts of violence continue to be a current part of our everyday life. So, the memorial is a visit to a horrible act of the past, but one that continues to persist and be a part of the modern world. Eerie and frightening.
Never forget.
