New York

New Yorkkkk, concrete jungle where dreams are made. ❀️

Key places of interest to visit apart from the usual shopping at Times Square & food! In no particular order.

The Highline.

Walk along the highline, an elevated park to take in both views of Hudson River & othe streets of New York.

The highline is a really long stretch & unless you really have time to spare, I would suggest walking only a portion of it.

I walked from the 34th street end where you will get a very clear view of Hudson River.

As you continue walking, you'll get more views of the buildings / streets. Good photo moments if you can fight the crowd. 😎 #WhipTheSelfieStick #ButDontBeANuisance #AsianSkills

I probably only walked 1/5 of the highline & continued on street level for my food thrill (*Trail. Leaving the typo there because misspelling it as thrill got me amused. Makes sense to me too πŸ™ƒ)

Musuems.

So many museums, so little time! I only managed to go to American Musuem of Natural History.

RAWRRRRRRRRR!

Think Dinasours! Night at the Musuem movie! Space & Universe (was so-so) & replicas of mainly North America animals. No arty farty stuff & the musuem was a 50:50 like amongst my friend.

Although not all exhibition were mind blowing, we still spent 6 hours here. Food prices is crazy at the cafeteria, you've been warned.

Bonus points about AMNH is that it's just beside Central Park.

Central Park.

Central Park is HUGE. The photo above is taken from the ANMH side, towards Fifth Avenue. It was getting late by then. And freezing... so we brisked through the park towards Fifth Avenue.

Came back again on a sunny morning to picnic!

Broadway.

'Nuff said. No explanation required. The only tip is -- if you're trying to get the cheaper tickets that goes on sale at the box office on the same day, be prepared to go early. I reached at 10am & there was like a queue longer than the Macdonalds-Hello-Kitty queue. Didn't bother queuing & bought tickets at some portal online (with a slight discount).

Outlet Shopping.

Take the earliest coach there. When we arrived at Woodbury on the earliest coach (8:15am pick up, approx 10am arrival), we shopped like kings & queens. Not much crowd & you get to look at stuff without anyone shouting over your head β€œθΏ™δΈͺε€šε°‘οΌŸβ€

It becomes a war zone by noon. Take the map, highlight those shops you want to cover & that's it. You won't have time to cover all shops sadly. (No money too 😭😭)

& there's Shake Shack at Woodbury.

Brooklyn.

With all the hustling at Manhattan, it's always nice to take things a lil slower at Brooklyn.

You get into Brooklyn via metro, but if you want the whole tourist package, do the Brooklyn Bridge Walk.

Beware of the cyclists! #FastAndFurious & I really mean it when I say furious. 😀

Famous Brooklyn Ice Cream & it's really good. You'll know it when you see it. #MacsHelloKittyQueue.

Chinese Food.

We didn't do anything else other than to have lunch! Chinatown is really close by to Brooklyn Bridge. And if you miss Chinese food, this is the place to go.

YOU WILL BE THIS HAPPY!!!! I SWEAR
Found Gong Cha across our Chinese restaurant.

Funny how I don't even drink Gong Cha when I'm in Singapore but the thought of having it was so soothing. #Homesick

I don't even know how "Chinese Food" made it to this list, but it did. πŸ€”
