What can I say about New York, The Big Apple? A beautiful city and even more stunning when I was there in 1996 when a tourist was still able to walk around the city and admire its beautiful Twin Towers.
I remember climbing up the South Tower and standing on the rooftop with this incredible feeling while I could see the entire city of New York. A truly unforgettable experience! Unfortunately also a unique experience which I would never be able to relive.
After the incident of 11 september 2001 I never felt the same way about New York and I never went on a second trip. It would simply be too difficult not finding the Twin Towers where they stood ten years ago. The Twin Towers in a way were a symbol of New York and literally something to look up to.
Of course New York still has a lot to offer and there are many interesting places to visit like the Natural History Museum and the adjacent Planetarium. You would definitely need a couple of days to explore this impressive city and you can't go without taking in the impressive New York skyline or its popular Central Park, a green city within the apple!
I loved New York for its cultural melting pot of people and and it really is a city of possibilities. Everything you might need is in New York and just when you think life gets a bit superficial, you discover the art works in the hall of the Empire State Building, the Louvre has never had bigger competition.
Did you enjoy Pictures of the Twin Towers in New York and have you been on a holiday in New York, United States?
Add your trip!
