My love affair with New York started on my first visit at age 11. We were on our way to Brazil and Argentina with an overnight in Manhattan. I toured the UN, I left our bag with all our passports and tickets in it in front of Rockefeller Centre (and miraculously had someone return it to me) and decided that I’d live there one day. In a penthouse apartment with my black panther cub called Sebastian where I’d throw fabulous parties for my talented friends and have an endless supply of pink lemonade.
I was 11, okay?
Living there sadly never happened. But I have gotten to return a bunch of times. Including when I found out I was pregnant. I remember being so excited that I could go to the Pop Shop and buy baby clothes, and thinking “one day I’m going to bring my kid here.” Last month, I finally did. I took my twelve year old for her first visit with much walking of the city streets and, of course Broadway shows. She’s hooked. Which is both great and not so, since it costs a small fortune to get there. Anyhow, here is a brief video of my trip. No clue why I shot it this way. As I was watching it, I was thinking “where are all the attractions?” Except we didn’t do a ton. Just wandering around takes up a lot of time.
Have you been? Do you love it? What’s your favourite city?
