Impressions from New York City.

I have just spent a few months in the US and during my stay we went to New York City for a few days. Needless to say, I enjoyed every minute of it! We had left the guide book at home and just let our fancy take us around. I had my camera at hand and will share some of my impressions and adventures with you here.

At the shops at Columbus Circle these beautiful stars hang form the tall ceiling and made a
wonderful sight as they changed colours.

New York is a paradise for everyone and I found a pice of my paradise in the Garment District. The button shop I wanted to visit was closed, but I found consolation in the trimming shops! This wonderful shop called Tinsel Trading Company, was not just a great shop with a fantastic history, the people there were wonderful too!

We did some of the very touristy things too. Sunset at the Empier State building, watched the ice skaters at Rockefeller Centre while we had a great lunch, went to Time Square - just to say it was too busy for our taste! We had so much fun. New York before Christmas is as wonderful as New York at any time of the year!

As allway when I am in New York I end up feeling I had too little time there. I decided not to feel that way this time. The fact that New York has so much in stall for all is why we long to go back as soon as we have left!

  3. New York at the holidays is so much fun! Your photos brought back memories of our trips there. I love seeing those colorful stars at Columbus circle, grabbing a quick bite to eat at Whole Foods, and then heading over to Central Park for a walk. And like you, don't get me started in the Garment District because I can spend days there!
