I had a hard time choosing what photos to put on this blog but here are some of my favourites!
Below we have Times Square in the daytime and a shot of Brooklyn Bridge.


I realised plastic ponchos can never be cool and that American take aways are huge!! I will also never get sick of the bright lights of Times Square. It puts London's Piccadilly circus to shame!


The view from the Empire State and the New York Library which was more like a museum!

Photos taken at the MOMA from the light installation by Olarfur Elliason. Very pretty! I really loved the interactive element where a lamp in the centre of the room created a pretty light effect and everyone had fun creating silhouettes with their friends. It was one of the best exhibitions I have been to in a long time. Though I have to say the best 'modern' art gallery is the one in Paris at thePompidou centre .

Amazed by the fantastic haberdashery shop which is a designers dream. Also the strange stores that sold wierd garden sculptures and miscellaneous objects. Below we have grand central and sipping cosmos at a bar in Times Square!


We couldn't leave the states without having a proper American breakfast. I only finished half of that plate of pancakes, it was a real struggle!

Hope you enjoyed my photos, I had so much fun taking them. If you live here then you're lucky to be able to call this city as home, I definitely want to go back one day!

  15. Hey, wow the pictures are amazing, it just makes me want to go to NY even more! I wish i was going!
    Oh and thanks for your great advice. I would have liked to do art History, but they don't do it at my college, which really sucks! It looked interesting. Oh and i have done the seperated English A levels because it's better if you want to do a English degree in uni, and i am thinking about it. Is psychology difficult? Is it interesting? Oh and yes, i think i will do history, although i wish i was doing the tudors! We have to do about Russia i think.
    Thankyou lots
    Bye
