I suddenly realised that I haven’t shared any photos with you guys from last year’s New York trip. And when I decided to make a blogpost, I then realised that I’ve left all the photos on our computer back home. So instead, I’m sharing some images that I shot on my iPhone 5s. Even though they’re not as great quality as if they were shot on a DSLR, I sure don’t mind taking photos with my phone. It’s the camera I always have with me.
SoHo must be my favourite district on Manhattan. The architecture is just my cup of tea and I’m dreaming of one day living in an apartment building like this one. If you’re going to New York sometime soon, there’s a place called The Apartment by The Line where you will have to go if you’re interested in everything from interior to fashion and art. The apartment is set up like someone actually live there, but you can purchase everything you see – from the Aesop lotion in the bathroom, to the coats hanging in the walk-in-closet and the sofas in the living room. Visit The Line’s website to get a better idea.
If you’re on a budget and deciding between spending your money on a tour up The Empire State Building or Rockefeller Center, I would highly recommend Rockefeller. From there you get the view over Empire State, which is very fascinating. The view from Empire State is better when you’re looking down, like the photo above.
I always refused to visit one of the high-rises when the weather was really nice, because I’m not a big fan of taking photos in sunlight. Overcast and rain gives the best images, in my opinion. Just bring your umbrella and deal with the weather. I can promise you won’t regret it afterwards when you see your photos.
One other thing I can recommend you to do is walking The High Line. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues. It was converted from an out-of-use railroad trestle to a public landscape and was finished in 2014. You get a nice view of Chelsea and the Meatpacking District, and it’s a nice walk if you’ve had enough of all the shopping and would like to trim off that lasagne or burger you had the night before.
If you have any other recommendations of places one should visit when in NYC, please comment below. I’ll definitely be going back in the next few years, and I’d love to have more things to put on my must see-list.
