Back to New York

This weekend I made a quick trip to NYC – not my first trip (that was in 2011) but the first trip I’ve made in a while. It was also my girlfriend’s first time in the Big Apple, so we mostly just took in the sights and walked around a bit. While I’m not sure I could ever live in NYC (at least not Manhattan), I do like visiting: lots of cool architecture, always something going on, and reliable 24-hour public transit. WMATA could learn a thing or two! However, word of advice for anyone thinking of going: avoid the summer months! The heat wears on you after a while, way too many tourists, plus we managed to get stuck in weekend beach traffic making for a very long bus ride. Next time we’re going in the winter!

The Chrysler Building, one of my favorites:
