Times Square, NYC

Times Square, NYC

I’ve returned in one, bruised piece after my first trip to New York City. They aren’t kidding when they call it “the city that never sleeps”, but I now understand why the I heart NY icon is so popular. It’s the kind of place where the energy you feel just by being in its presence can only be understood by going there yourself.
If you should happen to be in the area, I recommend a midtown bar called Blockhead’s for $3 margarita’s and free chips and salsa.

They are awesome, as are the NYPD, and they recommend some great local pubs and hangouts. Like Stout’s and O’Lunney’s where the best bartender’s are!
Times Square can be a madhouse and you’re most likely only among other tourists, but it’s still a must-see nonetheless. If your legs can handle it and you like to see everything, check out Greenwich Village and Soho for calmer, cooler vibe.

Pretty much all of Manhattan is a must see. I’m already planning a trip back.
