I was born in upstate New York about an hour from the Canadian border. I have lived in New York State my whole life and recently was able to make my first trip to New York City. I have been to quite a few major cities in my day, Boston, New Orleans, Orlando, Philadelphia, Ottawa, and Montreal, but New York is just a whole different experience. There is a good piece of history there, and so much to do. Things can be pricey but there are still tons of stuff to do that won’t break the bank. It is a unique place and seeing it in person is so much different then what you see on TV.
The Statue of Liberty is just an amazing sight to see the workmanship with the naked eye, see the skyscrapers our forefathers built by hand, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the many other sites that we have seen in many movies, shows, and pictures. I grew up in the sticks and now live in Syracuse a relatively small city, but it was easy to fall in love with the city that never sleeps. I’m not sure I could live there year round, but this would have been a great place to go to college. If you have never been to NYC it is worth saving up for a trip there.
