The month of February disappears so quickly, which makes sense because it is always the shortest month. As we begin this Monday we can see March rapidly approaching. The good news? This means that spring will be knocking on the door very soon and the weather will be warming up for those in the north. March is looking like it will be a fun month for us, and we have some exciting plans. We have friends who live in New York, and we’re looking into going for a short visit soon, which is why we chose the NYC skyline as our feature image this month.
New York is such an exciting city to visit, especially when you have friends who can show you a bit more of the local side of things. Some of the best places to eat in New York aren’t going to be found in any guide books. Rob has been to New York on a few different trips, but this will be Norma’s first time visiting the big apple. There are still many details to work out, and we haven’t finalized anything yet, but if things go according to plan, we should have some fun stories to tell you about soon!
New York is home to over 8 million people and there are countless world-famous landmarks to visit, such as Times Square, the Statue of Liberty or Central Park. There is a buzz to the city that makes this one of the most exciting cities in the world. There are thousands of bars and restaurants, and the list of other entertainment – Broadway shows or museums – means you can visit the city with any type of weather.
One of the best ways to see the city is to travel up to one of the many incredible viewing platforms. You can visit the top of the Empire State Building (102nd floor), the World Trade Tower (107th floor) and the Rockefeller Center (70th floor) for incredible views of the city below. The third option – known as the Top of the Rock – is a personal favourite because of the views you can have looking towards Central Park to the north and the skyline to the south, which allows for incredible pictures of lower Manhattan and the Empire State Building.
If you have a chance to do all three on the same trip, it might be costly and redundant, especially with so many other sights to see, but you really should visit at least one on your trip.
Creating beautiful desktop wallpapers is a new monthly feature we have created for 2019, showcasing pictures from some of the amazing places we have traveled over the last few years. We hope you enjoy! Stay tuned for our April wallpaper coming up in a few weeks. Enjoy the last few days of February and bring on March!
