Not So New York

High Line
High Line

New York is one of the most well-known cities in the world.  Iconic beacons such as Times Square, the Brooklyn Bridge and Central Park are all points of interest you can identify without even having visited the city. This trip however, resulted in a more authentic experience, as I stayed with my high school friend in the not-what-I-imagined-it-to-be Harlem, spent time with a Shanghai turned Chilean bestie, and indulged in drool-worthy macarons with my architect cousin. Besides copious amounts of free-flow boozy brunches and (trust me, they were happy) hours, walking around the city, and becoming well-acquainted with the 2/3 line, showed me a side of the city that I hadn’t had the chance to yet experience. A mix of old and new experiences with old and new friends – I’ll let the pictures say the rest.
