empire state of mind

I finally made my way up to the top of the Empire State Building (on my 7th month in New York). It was an experience to remember. It may seem like such a touristy thing to do, but it is in fact a breathtaking experience. You get to see how majestic and magical New York City truly is. On street level, you see the trash and other unsightly creatures that shall remain unnamed, but the truth is New York City is still a grand and glorious city. It has history. It has class. It is dynamic. It has this inexplicable and enigmatic energy. The moment you move here, you will want to stay here for the rest of your life. New York isn't just the glamorous city you see in Sex and the City and Gossip Girl. It's not just the rich uptown folk, there's the gritty side of New York City and then there's Brooklyn, Queens and let's not neglect to mention The Bronx and Staten Island. This city has so much character. Different boroughs have different energies. Different neighborhoods have different scenes.

I cannot wait to live my dream in New York City. I cannot wait to call this place my home forever. I love you, New York City.


  1. this makes me so happy! I am so happy for you!


  2. I love this. New York has and is and always will be my favorite place on earth. There's no other city that holds as much magic for me.

    And I'd love to see more photography from you, I guess you're super busy, but you know.. I'd be nice. :)

  6. Oh, I love when I hear people are making New York City their own and taking advantage of all that it has to offer. It's such an AMAZING and magical city. Take advantage of everything while you're here.
