There is something mysterious and intriguing about New York City. I know some people hate it, others love it. For me with my limited travel there, it still holds a lot of excitement and appeal. I would like to spend one month living there to get a real feel for the place and make my own decision as to whether I could be a city gal or not. And rather than the 300 sq ft apartments most live in, I'd really like to live in style, in a plush penthouse overlooking Central Park!
Interesting streets. Interesting people! Why do they
all want to live here? So many books and movies are
set in NYC. Why not Omaha? Why not Denver? NYC is the well-rounded Every City.
Central Park right there in the middle of it. I want to jog there and lay in the grass.
Broadway. I want to see some Broadway musicals at night and then trot back to my penthouse after having a frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity. I really liked Serendipity (the movie) by the way. It was almost too agonizing for a romantic comedy but it had the right element of unbelievability to it.
Who doesn't want to see those Rockettes? They are so tall and it's not fair that they don't accept women under 5'7 or 5'6. Discrimination at its finest! My legs could kick just as high as theirs! Well, if I was flexible they could...
The shopping, oh the shopping! I don't think I care about Macy's since we have one here and I never go to it but I do care about the hush-hush underground shopping. The knock-offs. The beautiful bags. I didn't do my research beforehand on what kind I like so I sadly couldn't seal the deal. But next time I will. Also just having all the shops right down the street. "Honey, I'm going next door to buy some designer jeans!"
"Honey, could you go grab some milk from the corner store?"
Wouldn't it be kind of cool just to be able to walk everywhere because it's all so close?
And the Thanksgiving Parade. I love that parade even though I usually change the channel when it's on. I like the idea of it, and that it is in NYC. I also like that classic Christmas movie that has that cute little girl watching the parade from her apartment up high. Wouldn't that be cool? And what is the name of that movie?
The perfect Christmas tree to sing around followed by some more treats from the next door cafe. NYC is supposedly very magical at Christmas time! Just watch Home Alone in NY!
Of course there is a lot of other stuff to do in NYC like some good museums and fine dining places and culture stuff, but this is the essence of my someday city adventure. Anyone else interested in this fine locale?
