In A New York Minute

New York, I love you. 

New York City is one of those cities in which you are neither here or there. You see so many people, things, and people are moving so fast that in a minute, you're in a completely different neighborhood. My sister and I payed New York a little visit two weeks ago because although New York City is magical any time of the year, there is a little something special about the city during the holidays. From the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller to the departments stores such as Macy's, Lord and Taylor, and Berdgorf's all decked-out in Christmas decorations. New York has that special holiday glow.

We took these photos right after visiting my favorite souvenir shop in front of the Flatiron Building. The store is run by the cutest little old Italian man who always gives me a ton of free little souvenirs. The first time I went, I told him how much I loved the city and he offered me to live with him and his wife as his three daughters were already grown and no longer living with him. Although I should have found his offer kind of alarming, if found it endearing instead. That's the thing about New York, you never know where you'll end up or who you'll meet.

La ciudad de Nueva York es una de esas ciudades en cual nunca estas aqui o alla. Ves a tantos lugares, cosas, y la gente se mueve tan rapida que en un minuto, te encuentras en una vecindad completamente differente. Mi hermana y yo decidimos visitar Nueva York hace dos semanas porque aunque Nueva York es una ciudad magica cualquier dia del ano, hay algo un poco especial sobre la ciudad durante las fiestas navidenas. Desde el arbol de navidad en Rockefeller a las tiendas de departamento como Macy's, Lord and Taylor, y Bergdorf's completamente adornados con decoraciones navidenas. Nueva York tiene ese brillo navideno.

Sacamos estas fotos despues de visitar mi tienda de recuerdos favoritos al frente del edificio Flatiron. El dueno de la tienda es un hombrecito anciano Italiano, que siempre me regala recuerdos gratis. La primera vez que fui, le dije cuanto amaba a esta ciudad y el me ofrecio vivir con el y su esposa, ya que sus tres hijas ya crecieron y ya no viven con ellos. Apesar de que deberia encontrar su porpuesta un poco alarmante, lo encontra carinoso. Esa es la cosa sobre Nueva York, nunca sabes a donde llegaras, o a quien conoceras.


With Love,
Paola
