Nicholas Welsch Preciado loves to travel to new and exciting places he also loves to chronicle those adventures. Below is his experience in New York City for the first time.
Being from a residential community, I had never truly been presented to the components of an expansive city, for example, New York City. For about the tenth time the morning of the flight, I checked my luggage to ensure I didn’t forget anything fundamental. My stomach was doing flips as we landed at the airplane terminal. I watched through the window as the runway zoomed by and the structures and houses got to be smaller and smaller as the plane picked up elevation. An invigorating feeling overcame me as I realized that I would soon be in one the most astounding cities in the United States.
When we arrived at our hotel was in Times Square, it was amazing to see the lights and billboards. Thousands of people bustling around people. I could see why some people refer to Time Square as the Heart of the world. If certainly seemed a million miles from Washington. While walking through times Square there were numerous characters and street performers it was like walking through a giant street show.
The structures were likewise an extraordinary sight. Every road was packed with skyscrapers that seem higher than the clouds. I was awestruck again as we went inside some of these structures, for example, the Empire State Building and advanced towards the top. Standing outside on one of the top stories of the Empire State Building was marvelous. I could grasp the whole city from this perspective. I could even see Ellis Island.
Another amazing site we toured while we were there was the Statue of Liberty. It was breathtaking to stand in front of the symbol of US freedom that’s been standing for 130 years. Taking the Ferry over from Battery Park and walking through the Ellis Island Immigration Museum was truly humbling as you imagine immigrants from all over the world passing through the same halls and starting a new life.
New York City was unlike any other city in the world. New York city has something to offer everyone. From the Arts, Museums, History, the food and overall atmosphere it’s apparent that there are no two people in this city who are the same and that’s ok. People come to New York City from all over the world and I can see why.
