Every time our family visits New York, we are always mesmerized by its diversity and high-rise buildings.. NYC is a true concrete jungle and a melting pot of people and culture. However, the state of NY has a lot more to offer. We have come to the big apple for the third time and this time in the summer. Thus, we did not want to pass on seeing also the countryside.
Our definition of a city may seem shallow but we always associate tall buildings with a developed city. And New York, NYC to be specific, has several skyscrapers more than anywhere in the world. Manhattan is home to iconic buildings such as the Empire State Building, the Rockefeller Plaza, the Grand Central Station, etc. NY is consequently called the “Empire State” because of its vast wealth.
The Hudson River flows abundantly along the state. Therefore, the natural landscape of New York is one that is beautiful and gorgeous. Each season would give a place a different look. For instance, while we are on our way to Hyde Park, we are in awe at the picturesque mountaintops, a view taken out from a postcard. Because it is summer and the leaves are green, we couldn’t help but wonder how wonderful it would look in autumn. So, we would like to visit NY again soon in its fall colors.
One of the reasons New York is unique is because of its people. For instance, imagine yourself just coming out of Grand Central Station. If you stay still for about 5 minutes and observe the people around you, you would have met different nationalities than you would in your lifetime. It is certainly amazing how these people coexist.
