"Everything in New York is BIG besides a PINT!!" New York City by jo104

I was not sure how much I would enjoy the States thinking it would just be far too new and modern for me especially after living in culture & history rich England for many years. But I was pleasantly surprised by what New York had to offer it is a vibrant city with plenty of poke. In stark contrast to European Architecture I found a different kind of beauty in the reflections of old style American architecture trapped inside towering glass skyscrapers.

    Thanks for your Bday wish! Nice to see that the Big Apple is going well since my last visit there in 1999. Do you become addict to the States with your next trip to Chicago ;-)

    Interesting things to do tips. I am not a huge fan of NYC but have to admit certain things you just can't get anywhere else in NY.
