I was lucky enough to get to travel to New York late last year. I booked the trip quite spontaneously, to be honest. Knowing that I wanted to put most of my money towards shopping and great eats, I decided against staying in a hotel during my stay. Instead, I opted for Air BnB. Air BnB is a website where people rent out their rooms or entire apartments/homes to travellers for (usually) a significantly cheaper price than a hotel.
I stayed in a lovely apartment in Harlem, about 5 minutes from Central Park. I was pleasantly surprised with how close it was to everything, and anything not accessible by walking, was easily accessed by the numerous subway entrances.
New York is a beautiful city. Huge skyscrapers are balanced perfectly with lush, green parks.
My favourite part of the entire weekend was definitely the MET. I am such a museum lover and I spent 5 1/2 hours completely mesmerized by everything.
I had the most incredible time in my short stay. I ate a bunch of awesome food (street meat and NY pizza? yes please!), and was fortunate enough to watch Wicked on Broadway. I feel like I didn’t get to see everything though. But seeing as it’s only about an hour away by plane, I’ll definitely be visiting more often! Hopefully again this summer!
