I would like to dedicate today’s post to my favorite place (that I have been so far) in the world, which is New York City. I’ve been to NYC a few times, and each time I always find myself as happy as possible, and I always long to go back. This will be more of a photo gallery, but it’s a post I’m very happy to be writing!
New York City is such an alive and booming place, and it truly is the city that never sleeps. I myself love being in an active city, with different types of people on every corner. For some reason, this feeling is more homely to me.
I myself have stayed in the quiet and loud sides of NYC, and I must say, both are equally wonderful! I’ve stayed in the Upper West Side, which is a fairly quiet and calm section of the city, and the brown stone buildings are absolutely beautiful as always.
The other part I have stayed in was literally the heart of Times Square. This section is obviously loud and filled with people, but the hotels all have high floors, so you rarely hear anything from your hotel room. Below are photos of my view as soon as I stepped out of my hotel:
If I could choose a favorite I stayed, I would personally say Times Square. Mainly, because all of the Broadway shows I see are within walking distance, and it is very easy to get to subway stations from there as well. Though, I do see many others, including my parents, who prefer to stay in the quiet section, because it is quite peaceful there.
If you are going to NYC, no matter where you stay is a wonderful experience. Central Park is extremely large and very beautiful, especially in the Summer time.
My absolute favorite place in NYC, that I visit every time I go there, is The Plaza Hotel. To me, it is the most beautiful building that I could never afford to stay at! It is my dream wedding destination, too. I have eaten in their underground cafeteria, and I must say, the food is very fancy, but very expensive! If you would ever eat there, I recommend getting one of their many delicious desserts.
Views of the city, I have very mixed feelings about. I have been to the top of the Rockefeller, and the top of the new One World Observatory in place of where the Twin Towers stood. I am extremely afraid of heights, so I was very nervous on going to both! Top of The Rock is outdoors, which was terrifying, but the views were wonderful. One World Observatoey is all indoors, and being the tallest building in the city, the views are incredible.
Have you been to New York City before? If you have, what is your favorite place to visit? Tell me in the comments or tweet me @candidlydarling I would love to know!
