Things To Do in New York: Have a meal at Little Italy.

February 13, 2015
Little Italy
After spending much of our day capturing the beauty of New York City from the Empire State Building, we decided to go to Little Italy for lunch. We took a cab which was a horrible idea since it was rush hour (everyone’s going for lunch maybe?) and cabs in the area of the Empire State Building is scarce at the time. Anyway, we arrived at Little Italy and decided to have our meal at Amici II Ristorante. A bit d

Things To Do in New York: Enjoy the views from the Empire State Building

February 5, 2015
Empire State Building
I read on various blogs and tripadvisor comments that the line going up to the Empire State Building normally takes about 3-4 hours which is why I was a bit hesitant to go and wait for that much time. I figured that it’s just going to be the aerial view of New York city anyway, nothing really special about it. Well, I was totally mistaken. When we arrived at the Empire State Building, there was no line whatso

Things To Do in New York: Cycle Through Central Park

January 30, 2015
Central Park
Whenever I watch a movie or a tv show set in New York, I would always see Central Park one way or another. I have this strange fascination in it because of Hollywood I must say. I always thought to myself, how cool would that be to have a huge park in the middle of a bustling city? Well, having been there myself, it’s not only cool but it felt to me like it’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever see

9/11 Memorial Museum
During my visit to New York, I was not able to do a lot of things that I would love to do but visiting the 9/11 Memorial Museum is something that I cannot afford to miss. So our group of 6 were divided into two, the husband and I including the sister-in-law went on our way to the museum while the rest of the group stayed behind and explored the city further. September 11, 2001 – a tragic day not only for New

Things To Do In New York: Visit the Liberty Island

January 6, 2015
Liberty Statue
Ah! The Liberty Island, probably one of those things (if not the only) that one must really do (no matter what it takes) when in New York. A visit to New York is not complete without seeing this iconic landmark. If you don’t have a photo with the lady Liberty up close and personal on your Facebook or Instagram then your visit to New York did not happen. You can stop pretending now. We planned to visit the Li

Things To Do in New York: Be Dazzled in Times Square.

December 8, 2014
Times Square
For the whole week that we stayed in New York, Times Square never failed to amaze me. Everytime we passed by this area, I just have to take a photo of the place even if I’ve taken loads already and also stop myself from dancing cabaret-style to the tune of Sinatra’s New York, New York. Add to it the fact that we were staying in a hotel which is only 2 minutes walk away from this popular strip which mean
