City of Dreams

So it's been said people come to New York to make dreams come true - I am no different. I have come to this concrete jungle and my dreams of this wonderful city have been achieved. In the three days I have been here I have lived a movie - I have loved each and every magical moment and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.

I have shopped the famous fifth avenue and I have had "breakfast" at Tiffany's. I have walked through snowy central park and have met some wonderful locals. I have seen the wonder of the American Natural History museum and Metropolitan museum of art. I have caught the famous subway all around and I have hailed a famous yellow cab.

Yesterday I explored the wonderful SoHo and followed in Carrie Bradshaw's footsteps as I bought red velvet cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery. I ate dinner at Lombardis in little Italy - the first pizzeria in America!

I also saw ground zero and felt the sadness of that horrid event. The rainy weather added to the atmosphere and as I read all the names I felt the pain and all that destruction. It's such a beautiful tribute and a wonderful way to remember those lives that were lost.

I have seen the Flatiron building today, Madison square garden and some more famous shops - Barney's and Bloomingdales to name a few.

I'm off to a broadway show tonight and I've stuffed myself with New York baked cheesecake.

I know I'm going to miss this wonderful city - it's people, it's stories, it's buildings and all the magic that it holds.

Stay tuned for my last day in this city tomorrow where I shall delve into the world of the statue of liberty that most well known Brooklyn bridge and the romance of the Empire State building.
