New York City, no matter how you imagine it, is like nowhere else in the world. Manhattan is such a diverse and fascinating place; it's possible to sample food from almost every culture on earth here. There is an almost constant buzz of excitement in the air, especially amongst the hustle and bustle of Times Square, which is the scene of incredible New Year's Eve parties.
By far my favourite activity is taking the trip to the top of the Empire State Building, the view is incredible, especially at sunset, not ideal if you have vertigo though! Every time I have been to the 'big apple' I’ve been drawn to the scene of the 9/11 atrocities. Seeing where the Twin Towers once stood never fails to make me stop and become acutely aware of the eerie calm and stillness that seems to engulf the area. A truly unforgettable encounter.
