New York | Photo Diary Day Three

On our third day in New York we got up early and headed to Brooklyn, we got the subway there as our plan was to walk back to Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge. Before doing this we stopped off at a small coffee shop, it was full of locals which was a nice change to the tourist filled Starbucks we'd previously been to. After this we went to get some pictures of the bridge and then walked over it, after spending a good couple of minutes working out how to actually get onto it!

The Brooklyn Bridge was one of the highlights of my trip as it was great for photographs and offered amazing views of Manhattan, it was also the first day I got to wear my sunglasses! Once we finished walking over the bridge we headed towards Wall Street for the obligatory pictures; we also saw the charging bull but there was a mass crowd around it so getting a good picture was practically impossible. We ended up eating at an Irish restaurant and then headed back to the hotel for an early night and some American TV.

New York | Photo Diary Day Two

On the second day of our trip we got up early and caught the tube to the Rockefeller centre we decided to go early to beat the crowds, after this we headed to 5th Avenue and did a bit of shopping. We then went to Panera Bread for lunch, they do my favourite chicken noodle soup which is annoying seeing as we don't have it in the UK. After this we headed towards the Empire State after a quick stop off at Grand Central station mostly because I felt it was a necessary visit after watching Gossip Girl. We then waited for it to get dark and went up the Empire State. We chose to do both the Rockefeller and Empire State so we could see the view both in the day and once it was dark. While seeing the Empire State from the Rockefeller centre was amazing the view from the Empire State was even more magical.

New York | Photo Diary Day One

I was lucky enough to go to New York at the end of March for a week, it was quite a surreal experience after wanting to go there for so long. Exam revision has been taking over my life for the past month or so but It's been a long time since I posted on here! University took over and I never got round to posting but I thought I'd have a break and share some of the photos from my trip. I'm planning on doing a post for each day as there's a lot of photos!

The first full day was spent in and around Times Square doing what a lot of people do in New York: shopping. We also had tickets to see Wicked for the evening, I have to say I wasn't really sure what to expect but the show was amazing and I would definitely recommend it. I didn't actually take that many photos on the first day as I spent most of it shopping but here here are some photos:
