New York is a city that can leave someone stunned when encountered for the first time…. especially for a person like me, who is thrives in an urban environment, New York was a dream come true!!!

Unfortunately,  I didn’t really get to do alot of the tourist – y things as I was only there for a day and a half, to attend a conference…

But I did get to travel by the subway and go to and see a lot of really interesting places in the city with friends..

I’m glad it’s so close to Philadelphia as it is really convenient to visit, even if it is for a day…




Typical feature of external fire staircases of New York… on the front facade of such an ornate building..
