It's funny how you live so close to a place and yet never take advantage of all of the wonders there are to see. My cousin came to visit the United States from Italy for the first time and so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to show her some of the best known spots in the city--- all the while acting like a tourist myself ;).
We walked along Fifth Avenue, marveled at the lights in Times Square, Rockefeller Center, ate an all American hot dog, enjoyed the beauty of Central Park, and the art in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. If you live nearby or are visiting, definitely take the time to take a map and walk, ride the subway or bus to have the NYC experience. It was such a fun day, here are my photographs I took throughout my visit... enjoy!
