New York Photo Diary: Part I

Playing: Anna Sun-Walk the Moon

New York has always been one of my favorite cities and I've always had this dream of moving there one day and working there before getting married and moving to Los Angeles. One of the things that I love about the city is how busy it is and how it has pockets of history hidden between sleek skyscrapers. New York makes you feel important when you're there unlike LA, which as much as I love it, can feel a bit suburban at times due to the fact that LA is spread out over a vast area of land. Over break, I had the chance to visit New York and pictured above are a few of my favorite shots of buildings I took and the ricotta pancakes at Maialino, a cute albeit pricey cafe.

      Also, I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels like LA is a bit suburban.

    1. Haha, I'm worried about the limited amount of sun and I'm guessing absence of palm trees in NY. Living in SoCal has not prepared me for the weather change.
