We landed in New York yesterday around 9:30 am. Luckily that gave us the whole day to explore New York! We all became real New Yorkers by buying our first metro cards! We then walked around to find somewhere to eat breakfast, we ended up at this little diner that someone had recommended. I must say their recommendation was perfect! After filling our hungry stomachs and exploring some more we were able to check in in our rooms at the YMCA, because most of us hadn’t slept any, we all decided rest time and naps were needed! At least for an hour haha.
Once we were all rested up we headed out to catch the metro to go to time square. When we arrived the scenery was breathtaking. Something right out of a movie, from People all over and cars beeping their horns to food trunks on every street corner, the atmosphere was unexplainable. We all found many spots for photo ops of course! After going into many of the stores we were all pretty hungry again! Dinner was at the AMAZING Guy Fieri’s restaurant. The portions were huge and the taste was impeccable. After dinner some of us decided to head back to the YMCA while others stuck it out more to go get dessert! Overall our first day in New York was filled with adventure and excitement! Can’t wait to see what the rest of the week brings!
