NYC | The City

11 Feb

I won’t say anything about these pics… just see for yourself!

Ok… maybe 1 thing that defines Manhattan and can’t be on photos: the smell! There are so many fragrances in the air. I don’t think I will be able to put it on words, but I’ll try: it’s a mix of hot dogs, popcorn, perfume, people, cars,fruit… It’s really bizarre, since I’ve never felt anything like that before.

When I went to visit Brooklyn and New Jersey it was completely different, it was like you could ‘smell’ the difference. I felt that something was missing, I felt I was no longer in New York, because Manhattan has this characteristic smell and frenzy of people, which makes you feel like you are really in the desert, when you visit other places in New York.

New York Trip!

26 Jan

If you follow this blog for some time, you might remember that back in June (my birthday) I offered myself a promising trip to New York. Back then, I promised that I would post photos about it and would show you how cool NYC is!

The thing is… I was borrowed a fancy-pretty cool-expensive camera from a guy who lived there. While in NYC, I used and abused the camera and the amazing quality of the pics! You can imagine how many photos I took and, judging by the camera, you might have an idea on how heavy the file with the pics was… So, I didn’t bring the photos with me, unfortunately. Therefore I had to wait till now, to get them back! (True story, bad logistics and way too many Gb’s…)

Finally I’m able to talk a bit about New York City (supported by images) and to show you some photos of the city, the people and the fashion trends.

Once Upon a time in NYC

After a long flight, some boring movies and a stupid annoying cop at the airport, I started my adventure in the city that never sleeps. Of course I had to begin by riding trains and a thousand subways, asking directions and walking through crowded streets to finally get home! But I didn’t even care! I was thrilled about stepping on that city’s floor at last… Since childhood I always wanted to visit America.

I stayed at a friend’s house in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan. My first meal was an enormous slice of pizza and a giant coke, and then I headed to a characteristic bar named Rudy’s – pretty cool for a first AMERICAN impression!

On the next day, I woke up pretty early, went to central Park for a walk and guess who was there! Lady Gaga! Good Morning America (GMA) organized a free Lady Gaga concert that day. I don’t need to say that it was fucking crowded, right?

There were 12 incredible days! I went to some rooftop parties, to Sunday concerts in Brooklyn, to 6 Flags in New Jersey, I went to MET and saw Alexander McQueen exhibition (never thought I would be so close to his fashion pieces of art). I ate a lot of junk food and delighted myself every morning with an exquisite iced coffee from a 24/7 store. And for me, that was the magic of NYC!

I will have several posts about my trip to New York City. I will not bore you with extensive writing; it’s just a way to separate photos about different subjects: the city, the people, and the style!

Hope you enjoy!
