Future visits to New York City

I Love NYC

I’ve been to New York City five times in my life and feel slightly familiar with its theatre district.  So I hope to go back a few times throughout 2013, as a way to get to know the city and its districts even better.  With new and exciting events year-round, there are so many urban adventures and experiences there that I can’t wait to have myself.

The first couple of visits to the Big Apple were in my high school years and then I went back several times in college.  I was a non-traditional college student, so those high school and college visits to the city were quite far apart.  I loved my earlier visits to New York City and it became a place that I would love going to for the day or a weekend.  I hoped to do so more often over the years.  Instead, a long absence from the city occurred and after that first time back to New York City in March 2011, I fell in love with it all over again.  Going back after so many years included my first time catching a Broadway show.

As a college student of journalism, I became fairly active in social media and from that, I found many more things I love about life in New York City.  The next two times in the city during college, I saw two more Broadway shows and grew more excited about being there.  Between those multiple collegiate visits to NYC and learning more about things to do via social media, I began to wish I could live in that amazing city one day.  Even if I  did so for a couple of months, that would be amazing!

I’ve only experienced a small amount of what there is to do; check out some of my photos on Flickr.  New York City has so many more things to offer that I’d love to check out, from the museums, dining and tours.  So, I’m sharing what I love about it as my own little ode to NYC whether or not I’ve experienced them.

I’ve got some of the above places saved on the tripadvisor NYC Guide for nook, as part of my plans to go with a friend.  We’re hoping to see Wicked the Musical as well!

    I’ve watched Wicked three times, it is *that* good! I love NYC too (who doesn’t!) but I have to say my perspective on the city changed when I lived there for about 10 months or so… it’s a very different city to a visitor and to a resident. I still miss it though! Have fun when you’re back in the city, and say hello to the Chrysler for me!
