Last month my boyfriend and I went to New York for the very first time. It was very exciting! It definitely lives up to its name and exceeded my expectations, the sheer size of New York was incredible.
We did a lot of the tourist things that you would think of when you visit New York and go into Manhattan (Times Square, Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, the 9/11 Memorial, the New York Stock Exchange, etc). But we stayed in Brooklyn with friends and found this awesome mural. It was near the subway and I was blown away by it, the colors, the details, and how much fun it is.
