Visiting places you’ve only ever seen on TV is quite surreal, so exploring New York and seeing the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Times Square and of course the Ghostbusters HQ was pretty amazing.

Its a city with lots going on and in the week I was there I tried to do quite a lot. I really liked the atmosphere of the city and the sort of edgy vibe it gave out. Visually I found it quite stunning, especially at night looking down on it from the Empire State Building or the Rockefeller Centre.

I managed to get round to exploring most of Manhattan and a little bit of Brooklyn and even managed to sneak a run in to burn off all the amazing food I had. Hopefully on my next visit I’ll get to explore a bit more of Brooklyn and New Jersey and maybe further afield.

Here are some photos from my trip.
