Flying in to JFK was something else. The lights just seemed to go on forever, luminous and hypnotising. NYC really is the big apple. I’m staying here for a couple nights with my friend Sophie and her friend Luke in an apartment in Manhattan. They don’t really have the room and have other people staying as they have rented the space for 2 weeks. I’ll be looking on to stay at a hostel for the rest if the week coming up.
Last night was great. We went to a club called Electric Room, because apparently that’s the place to go. A group of us went out, once we hit the door the lady was like “If you’re not on the list we can’t let you in”. But after a 30 second conversation she decided that we had “good ratios” and let us in. Drinks were redic expensive, but it was almost worth it.
Today I just spent the day wandering around. Headed to Brooklyn, had brunch at Five Leaves cafe, went in to a few stores, visited the apple store of 5th and just soaked it all in. It really is an amazing city.
The people in NYC aren’t as abrupt as I expected. Everyone has been super nice so far and getting around has been fine. If you’re in NYC and spot a dazed Aussie, that’s me! Come say hi!
Sorry this post is somewhat boring, I’m so tired and it’s all just too much! Haha. I’ll be trying to record and upload a vlog soon, and I’ll try to be a little more colourful than this drab post. Thank you so much to all my followers who have given me advice on what to do during my week in NYC. You have been great! I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated and in the loop with what I’m doing.
