You don’t see New York City first, you feel it. The city pulses and glows with energy. Next you hear it. It sounds like a storm. Different elements rushing together to form an exhilarating uproar. When you finally start to see the city, it is bigger and more magnificent than you could ever have imagined.

NYC, you surprised me. As a born and raised country girl, I never imagined so thoroughly enjoying a metropolis vacation but somewhere between the street musicians, the 4 train and your cawfee (I now say coffee with a NYC accent ;) ), I fell in love.

Keys sang it right, “these streets will make you feel brand new, big lights will inspire you.”
