New York City Sights

Despite the seemingly arctic weather, I braved the elements to do some sightseeing in the Big Apple. I rode over the Brooklyn Bridge, saw the Empire State Building, shopped in Manhattan and even went looking for street graffiti in the neighbourhood of Crown Heights. At some points, it was so freezing, that when I breathed, I could see twin puffs of white ‘smoke’ from my nose! Ridiculous!!

I took the Path Train from Jersey City where I was staying and spent the day traipsing around NYC… Here’s some of the photos I ended up with:

After a while though, it became difficult to take photos with my arms full of shopping bags! All in all, it was a great day and I had a whirl of a time 😀

About Jodi

I absolutely love to travel. Most days, it's hard to focus on anything else. However, I'd like to change my travel style from now on. I have always been a 'safe' traveler, with hotel reservations made, cruise vacations and a set timetable. I want to break out of that habit, and become an independent backpacker. This blog will serve to document my aspirations to experiment with traveling solo, around the world!

  1. It sounds like very chilly fun, Jodi 🙂 Nice and warm in the stores, though.

  2. You actually need to go on the bridge to have the best view rather than by car 😉 Trust me, gigantic!
