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.

When we arrived at the Empire State Building, there was no line whatso

Times Square
For the whole week that we stayed in New York, Times Square never failed to amaze me.

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

Chatwal New York
After our wedding, the husband and I together with his family went off on a roadtrip for our 6-day stay in New York City. I’ve mentioned it before but I will mention it again, don’t even think about renting a car in New York. We were stuck in traffic for almost an hour and ended up parking our car elsewhere and just walked towards our hotel with all our bags in tow. Traffic was that bad. Chatwal New Yor

New York City
One of the few reasons why I love New York is as a lively city, it was able to maintain a huge number of parks. Coming from Dubai where it is very rare for me to see one, I was a bit amazed that for a very cosmopolitan city – you can still see a lot of greenery around you.

As previously mentioned, I have a love-hate-love relationship with New York. Here are some of the reasons why I love it, the myriad architectural designs of the buildings you will see in this concrete jungle. The street where our hotel, Chatwal New York, was. The street near Bryant Park. View from the Staten Island Cruise Terminal Financial District Bowling Green View from Liberty Island Opposite Central Park View
