Genie Luxemburg – I haven’t been to New York yet but I’ve always wanted to go…I spent my teenage years watching shows like Friends and Sex And The City, and I dreamed of getting to be part of the culture, buzz and excitement of the city that never sleeps! It’s a world away from my dreary lethargic hometown in rural England.
Ray Ayala – What I love about NYC is that you can take it with you wherever you go. For starters, few cities have songs composed about them. “New York, New York” is such a famous song, many know the lyrics by heart. Whenever I need encouragement, I often listen to Frank Sinatra’s rendition for few could sing the tune and rally one’s spirit at the same time. Known as the Chairman of The Board, Frank Sinatra inspired the masses from afar. In addition, I look forward to one Collegiate Bowl Game in particular -The Pinstripe Bowl. On that day, the iconic Yankees Stadium is converted to a football stadium. Two privileged teams earn the chance to play under the brightest lights on the brightest stage in the city that never sleeps. I, on the other hand, grew up in a small, sleepy town. And in my living room, for one day, as I tune in, my little town blues melt away and I really do feel like King of The Hill. So start spreading the news. What I like about New York City is that it is always with us through song, travelling Broadway productions like Hamilton, many sports broadcasts, and televised performances from the Met.
Kelli – The Statue of Liberty which I know is located there and represents liberty and freedom for the US. I’ve never been to NYC though and would love to visit one day. I hear the city pizza is pretty tasty
risingphoenix2018 – I love or heart all the TV shows and movies filmed or based there. TV shows: Gossip Girl, The Nanny (featuring native New Yorker Fran Drescher), King of Queens (featuring native New Yorkers Leah Remini and Kevin James), and the list goes on. Talk shows: Wendy Williams, The Chew, Rachael Ray, etc. Movies: Confessions of a Shopaholic, The Nanny Diaries, Maid in Manhattan, Splash, Hitch, and there’s so many, many more! I think that some of the best (if not the best movies and shows) are all about NYC!
Vinita Schmitt – i love the way New Yorkers stand up and take care of those who need help in NYC
ramadevi – NY is a very good place to visit for holiday. I went via tour bus with my husband 5 years ago, it was wonderful trip. I bought the logo key chain and a pen with ” I love NY. I still have them with me. We stayed in a 4 star hotel for 3 days and had a trip around the city. We met many people in the bus and we made to know each other, we all cared for each other. It was wonderful holiday trip. Our tour host was very nice and friendly. All my friends said that the trip is expensive but I dont mind to pay for leisure, holiday for relaxing. I think it is worth in a while to take holiday for yourself to relax. We have to earn and same time we need to enjoy and relax in life. It is very important. NY is a big, busy and crowded city. I really liked the place but we have to come back where we live back in Toronto.
Cathy Deslippe – I love dreaming about going to New York and staying in a very upscale motel. Going to wonderful name brand stores that I have never seen before. I think it would be wonderful to go to Time Square on New Years Eve and bring in the New Year and watching it happen instead of watching it with everyone in Canada on TV. So much excited, wonderful fashion and an inspiration for me to write even more. I would love to go to theiir Art Galleries. On this particular day I would love just to go to New York and pay tribute to our fallen heroes who past on this day Sept 11, those who lost their lives, those who fought to save lives, those that are still hear to tell the stories. I remember watching it on the TV with tears in my eyes, asking myself why did this have to happen? My heart goes out to each and everyone, especially today. I LOVE NEW YORK
Noel Stewart – I love my vacation memories of New York City. I don’t even know where to begin. I was chaperoned by a tour bus and was able to experience not only the excitement of Wall Street, Yankee Stadium, and the gastronomical delights of China Town, but the tradition and history hit me hard when we took a ferry over to Ellis Island and Liberty Island. It was not just the fact that this was the doorway to the melting pot and birth of our Nation, but I could feel the presence of my very own ancestors (from Ireland and Scotland) who generations ago set foot on this very hallowed ground. I looked up at Lady Liberty and realized that even she is a part of the melting pot because she is a gift from the French.
Denise N. – Born and raised as a City girl I love how there’s something to at any given time. Even at 3 a.m.! The museums, the restaurants, the Zoo- it all sounds like places I’d love! New Yorkers are tough but they’ll bend over backwards for family and friends! Have I ever been to the Big Apple? No. Will I? It’s definitely on my bucket list!
namers – Brooklyn girl lost in L.A. wanting so desperately to see my NY Yankees in their ‘new’ stadium. I miss EVERYTHING!
dottie p – i’ve never been there but i will say i love 2 things about NY. 1. I love the fact that everyone came together when 9/11 happened. there was so much compassion, caring, loving, helping.and 2 for making sure my brother mike was safe and he came home to me when we needed him the most. (he lived there for a lot of years)
Carol Miller – There are sooo many things I love about New York City. They definitely have the best restaurants, best shopping experience, best Broadway Plays, best finance district, best theater district, best skyscrapers, most beautiful cathedral, best cab service etc etc. I could go on and on. However, I think the most distinguishing chacteristic is the indomitable spirit of the people. Ask anyone for directions and they will go out of their way to help you. Yesterday, we honored all those souls we lost on 9/11. The one positive was that you cannot break the spirit of New York city’s citizens. Their spirit of risking their own lives to save others still brings tears to my eyes. New York City symbolically houses the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Perfect embodiment of what true freedom means to us. God bless New York City and God Bless America!
MyKinKStar – All about Tha City baby! Used to travel the highway from NoVA to NYC on a weekend just to get away and have foods that can’t be found anywhere else that tastes as good. From pizza slices here and there to street dogs to ChinaTown to Little Italy deserts . . . I brought a leftover Cannoli to the hotel one night and put it on ice, that got waterlogged by morning. Ah, too bad, so sad, but it was kinda sorta still safe inside the wrapping papers and sooo, I ate it! Almost sickening now to realize, but I wasn’t gonna waste it! I said almost, cause it was really still GREAT and so worth it!
Jason Provo – I love the sports scene and culture in NYC! They have interests more than once within each major league because the size of the market as well as the great sports fans in the city make it easy to house more than one franchise. It was the sports culture after 9/11 ; specifically with the baseball and football leagues that helped forlorn citizens find a sense of coping through the stalwart insistence of the nation to continue on with its sports events, a way of daily life that Americans would not relinquish. The whole nation was inspired by NEW YORK STRONG!!
Judy Burba McGarvey – I love the history of NYC with Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. I’ve often pictured my ancestors getting off of boats there to start a new life in America.
Laura Hughes – Family members that live there. I also love the memorials for those who have lost their lives due to wars, past and present
daisy1790 – I love all of the different cultures and everything New York represents.
Britany P – The skyline is the best! It’s so detailed and beautiful! I love how unique it is.
