“These streets will make you feel brand new”
Indeed Jay-Z, they did.
I love New York City. Seriously. Like, I’m in LOOOOVE. Then again, I really only hung out between 14th and 59th in Manhatten. I did go up to The Bronx, and walked about Columbia a little. Along with Chinatown and Little Italy. (I didn’t make it to Brooklyn) But I got hooked in the SoHo, Chesea, Times Square, and Meat Packing area. I must say, my favorite street is 5 Ave. It does sound very steriotypical but it is beautiful.
Coming to NYC, I was scared. I had this inaccurate image of New York instilled in my brain by these frightening fantisies of dark lights, back alleys, and black ho0dies. I was greated with this overwhelmingly fashionable population which was generally friendly, funny and….normal. It is crazy to think right? N-O-R-M-A-L. Normal. Looking at the word now, normal is a strange word; not quite narwal or no mall or no mal, but normal. Off topic but, honestly, I truely enjoyed New York.
It was an eye-opening experience to the wonders of a big city.
