A-Z Challenge ~ New York City #atozchallenge
My family and I have been to NYC a lot. I love going there and walking in the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.
In 2011, my husband and I took our youngest to Comic Con there and had a blast. During that time, my sister, Kristen lived in Connecticut, so we’d stay with her and take the 40 minute express train to Grand Central Station. It saved us a lot of money. So, here are some of the pictures we took while there.
We had such a wonderful trip. We were only there for 4 days, but it was worth every minute of it. Also, during this trip, while walking in Times Square, we came around the corner where the Toys R Us is, and were thrust into a sea of people. Well, it happened to be that weekend the Wall Street picketed and every inch of the side walk was filled with bodies and it went on for miles. Well, people were pushing and shoving and I was freaking because of my son being pushed around by adults and people wanting to fight to get out of the crowd. So, before I cracked someone’s skull for messing with my kid, we had to escape up a side street, once we got to one, and get out of dodge. I hate crowds and people in my space so that part of the trip was NOT fun. The picture below was actually in a less crowded portion of the picketing, but as you can see, both sides of the street were packed with people.
So, which place do you love to return to over and over again?
NYC looks like a hive of activity! 🙂
A vibrant city that never seems to sleep… it must be quite an exciting experience too… I can imagine the atmosphere…?
It is a busy busy city and so full of life. 🙂
New York is probably top of my bucket list for places to visit. Loved the photos! I also share your hate for the pushing and shoving crowds though…
🙂 You definitely should go to NY at least once! What a great item to have on your bucket list. 🙂
Ugh, yes … crowds. 😦
Thanks for stopping by!
