And I’m Spreading the News
I was raised in South Florida but born in New York. There is something about New York that is a huge draw to me. From the shopping to the unique neighborhoods, I 💔 New York and visit every chance I can.
My husband and I brought our daughters to New York were when they were 12 and 8 years old. We wanted to show them more of the iconic landmarks. So we saw New York as first-time tourists going to Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Empire State Building, MOMA (Museum of Modern Art), Little Italy, and Yankee Stadium (the original stadium).
I have been back for a sister’s weekend, a mother-daughter weekend, and even to Times Square on New Year’s Eve. Both daughters had summer internships in the city so there were two more trips to New York.
Being in Times Square for New Year’s Eve was crazy and exciting. Visiting New York City during that time of year means tons of visitors so we did not get to get close to the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center or the decorations in the store windows.
In 2019, my daughters moved to the city. Suffice it to say, I never need an excuse to visit the city. When I went to visit them in February 2020, I had no idea that it would be my last visit for some time. I had plans to go back in the spring but then the pandemic happened.
As you can see, I have spent a lot of time in New York. If you have never been, I would definitely recommend the iconic spots. But if you are looking to explore other areas of NYC, I am sharing my recommendations. I am breaking it down into areas and interests.
