Experiencing the Big Apple

My girlfriend and I decided to go to New York to celebrate her birthday. Visiting New York has always been on my bucket list. One year ago, I along with my girlfriend “TW” boarded a plane and set out for several days to experience New York City and to celebrate her birthday which also allowed me the opportunity to experience the “Big Apple”

We started out with a sightseeing venture touring and enjoying the scenery around time square. The next day, we had an opportunity to take in some shopping and more sightseeing around “Ground Zero”, and I had an opportunity to take my first subway ride! I was so excited because I have always wondered what that trip would be like. To my surprise, it was not as scary as I imagined it would be.

A trip to New York would not have been complete without a tour of the incredible Empire State Building. We took the Big Bus tour in which we had the opportunity to experience Harlem, the world-famous Central Park and an exciting view of the Apollo Theatre where “Stars are Born”.
