One World Tower Center in New York City.

The Proud One World Trade Center

I was a surprised that there were only few people / tourists on the streets of New York City on July 4th. It’s not the scene of New York that I am used to. A friend and I walked around Tribeca and other touristy spots but we were relieved to see only few people around. […]

Inside 911 memorial and Museum in New York City.

What’s Inside the 911 Memorial and Museum in New York

I finally made it to the 911 Memorial and Museum in New York last July 4th weekend. I had two chances to visit this place before but I didn’t want to do it alone. Then, last weekend, a friend was free and we went there together. Visiting the 911 Memorial Museum was a bit emotional. […]

Last Column of the Twin Towers inside the 911 Memorial Museum in New York City.

The Last Column of the Twin Towers

They call this as The Last Column of the Twin Towers. It is called so because it was the last column standing that was removed from the Ground Zero, where the Twin Towers used to stand tall and proud. When the workers and rescuers pulled it out from the ground, they wrote (or vandalized?) it […]

One of the things I did when I went to New York last weekend was to visit Coney Island with a friend for the first time. I’ve been going to the City that Never Sleeps in and out since 2011 but I’ve never visited this amusement park by the beach. We were there on July […]

Grafitti Tour in Brooklyn, New York City.

Graffiti Tour in Brooklyn

You can find grafitti anywhere in New York. But not so much in Manhattan, at least to places I’ve walked by. If you go to other boroughs, like Brooklyn, Queens and bronx, grafitti (or street art or murals as they say) is everywhere. From abandoned buildings to bridges to empty lots, you can spot colourful […]

Night South Skyline view of New York from the Empire State Building

New York Skyline at Night

New York skyline is, I must admit, more beautiful at night. However, I’d advise anyone to see New York from above both during the day and at night. While you’ll be seeing the same cityscape in different times of the day, New York turns magical at night. That’s when you have the chill—and that unbelievable […]

View of New York Skyline from the Empire State Building

I’m not really impressed with the view of New York skyline from the Empire State Building. I like the view from the Rockefeller Center way better. Aside from the view, the queue management in Rockefeller Center is also much better than the one in the Empire State Building. On your way to the elevator that […]
