My trip to New York was awesome the moment I landed at JFK airport. I proceeded to take a shuttle to my hotel in Soho and got my first glimpses of the city on my way there. I saw the NY Mets’ stadium in Queens on my way there. As I got to my hotel, I checked in and I took a stroll through the streets. I proceeded to take a cab to Times Square where I met up with a friend and was amazed by the surroundings.
I decided to go into the Toys R Us there. It was very big and had plenty of gadgets. The big, robotic dinosaur drew my attention the most since I am a big dinosaur fan. Furthermore, while on my trip, I also got a glimpse of the Empire State building from the top. It was the most amazing view I’ve ever seen. In addition to that, I went to Yankee stadium, the new one, to view them play the Red Sox (Yankees won). The new ball park was amazing (minus the expensive food/souvenirs).
I was also able to visit the Wax museum. They had many of the world’s most famous people ranging from The Rock to Eminem. I also took a stroll through central park and it’s by far the biggest park I’ve been to. When it came to food, I ate at a spot called Johnny Rockets; their burgers are so great that I’m surprised I’m yet to see one of their locations open here in California. Overall, my trip was amazing and I’m looking forward to visiting New York City again. (Travel story submitted by Rome)
