Kumiko planned yet another trip to the States, this time hitting up Chicago before meeting me again in New York City. This time I went by myself. It was a bit scary making the trip alone, flying alone, taking the subway alone. But I honestly felt so empowered by doing it, like I could do anything now. Silly, I know.
One of the first things on my list was Central Park. We didn’t get to see much at all the last time so I wanted to cover as much of it as I could. If I lived in NYC, I would definitely go for a stroll through the park everyday I possibly could. I even talked Kumiko into doing a mini-”session” while in the park. We took turns taking each others picture, it was so much fun! We also saw Trump Tower, the Empire State Building, the High Line (a definite must-see), and the Manhattan skyline from Brooklyn Bride Park AT NIGHT. It was magical!! We walked all the way across Brooklyn Bridge over to the park and it was so worth it. The perfect way to end my short trip to NYC. I’m sure there will be another visit at some point in my future. I still have to see a Broadway show, of course!
