NEW YORK

STATE OF MIND

This was a trip of a lifetime. I have dreamt of going to New York. I think the first time I ever got obsessed with it is when I saw home alone. Since then I wished of walking the streets. The opportunity came about and I grabbed it, it was the best trip I've had. I took over 1000 images and over 500 videos, I'm going to make three stories so here is part one. This part is called 'the overview'.

Arrived into JFK. Got hassled for a fake taxi. Got told to hurry up. Told him I wasn't coming. He got mad. Queued in the taxi line. Got a yellow taxi. Went over Manhattan Bridge. Couldn't sit still. Saw my first glimpse of New York. Thought it was fake. Smiled.

Arrived. Saw the view out the window. Thought it was fake. Laughed. Took a shower. Packed my bag. Headed out.

Walked the streets. Felt so small. Smiled. Laughed. Snapped. Thought it was fake.

Caught the subway. Found it surprisingly easy. Already felt like a New Yorker. Felt at home. Went to the park. Grabbed some food.

Walked some more. Ruined my feet. Couldn't walk. Walked through the pain. Snapped a man in the streets. Followed him for two blocks. Felt weird. Stopped following.

Searched for food. Was recommended a burger place. Found it hidden in a hotel lobby. Queued for an hour. Grabbed a burger. Headed to find somewhere to sit. Found Columbus circle. Had a Starbucks. It was 2:00am. Guess it's true what they say. Went home. Looked at the view again. Laughed. Thought it was fake. Slept.

Walked some more. Feet still sore. Went to each district. Feet still sore.

Feet went numb from pain. Was able to walk some more. Went sunset chasing. Wasn't left dissapionted.

Skateboarded down Broadway. Loved it. Felt like a New Yorker. Felt like home. Met @jaywilder. Very awesome friend of mine.

Went up the world trade. Saw the view. Nearly shed a tear. Not even ashamed. Dream came true. Felt I didn't want to leave.

Skated some more. Didn't fall over. Success. Took a picture of another boarder. Totally by accident. Went to dollar pizza. Craving dollar pizza right now. Went to oculus. Got shouted at for sitting down. Just smiled. Went over Brooklyn bridge. Listened to Frank Sinatra. Never forget that moment.

Went on a boat. Got the best view point. Smiled. Saw the New York panorama. Thought it was fake. Smiled. Took a selfie. Never do that normally.

Last day arrived. Tried to change my flights. Got told no. That sucked. Looked at the view one last time. Thought it was fake. Laughed. Felt like I was leaving home. That sucked.

Thanks to @marklucovsky + @cindy for making this happen! See you again soon New York City.
