New York City needs no introduction, enormous metropolis that makes the heart race with its magnetic energy. The last day of my trip in March 2020 was the day the shops were ordered to close before the city started to shut down. Scenes of a quiet Central Park and Fifth Avenue before I headed to the airport were something I thought I would never see and I had no idea of what was coming. Watching and waiting until I can return again. We love you NYC!

Avenue of the Americas
One thing about this city best avoided is walking for 20 blocks up one of the Avenues (Already knew this but somehow didn't learnt from last time!). The monotony of traffic, noise, fumes, the identical grid pattern and continual confrontations between cyclists, drunks, taxi drivers and people generally shouting abuse at each other can really start to wear the down the human spirit and you just want to get the hell outta here. There is of course some great views to be had if you can handle it!

Hoboken, Jersey City, New Jersey

There are many amazing vantage points for seeing the Manhattan Skyline but this is one of my favourite's. Hoboken has a joint Ferry and Underground Station (Path Trains) which connect it to Manhattan Island directly opposite Greenwich Village. A promenade coastal park runs along the edge of the Hudson River containing playgrounds, lawns, wooded patches and numerous sports grounds. Must come back here at dusk for the light up!
