If there is one American city I have always been drawn to, it’s New York City. I can’t even pinpoint what fascinates me so much. It’s probably a combination of the mix of cultures there which influence everything from cuisine to music, the artistic feel of some neighbourhoods, the complete embrace of performing arts, the student neighbourhoods, Central Park… and architecture. That’s right. I’m the granddaughter of an architect. Never underestimate the attractiveness of architecture when it comes to a destination!
When I arrived in New York, I did so fresh off the bus from Newark at the Port Authority and there was no warning before I got swept up in the hustle and bustle of this great city.
