NEW YORK CITY | The ultimate city

After I've shown my excursions through Washington D.C., Philadelphia, New Haven, Hartford and Boston here, it's only natural to share these pictures of New York City.

All pictures were taken at different times with different cameras.

I think for a lot of people when they think of skyscrapers they think of New York, no other city in the world has the same history of skyscrapers!

NYC was known as Nouvelle AngoulÍme before it became New Amsterdam. In 1524 it was discovered by Giovanna da Verrazzano, an italian from France, he named it "New Angouleme" after the French town of AngoulÍme.

One of America's most beautiful bridges is named in his honour, it's in New York. Called The Verrazzano Bridge.



It's in the background to the left of the Empire State Building.

I love my city, but gosh...it looks like the countryside compared to NYC. There will always be a special place in my heart for New York, and like most people my age, straight out of college, I definitely see myself living there one day.
