Summer 2010 is very special to me because I visited the famous New York City.It was a delight to a take a tour around the New York City.I stayed there for about three days, but my experience was too huge that i felt like i was there for an entire week.New York City is the King of all cities in this nation.It was a family trip.My parents, older sister, my aunt and my uncle accompanied me. Except my dad none of us ever visited the city.Hence, it was extremely fun and entertaining to go to new place with the people who never visited that place before and are unfamiliar with it just like you are.My dad took a wise decision to go to NYC in a bus rather than a car. Believe me it would have been extremely hard for us to drive in such a crowded place.Also, walking and catching a taxi is much cheaper than paying for parking your car in NYC.

Everyone who visited NYC would mostly talk about it’s greatness, but i would  also like to share some other things that did not impress me. First let me talk about what i loved: The huge buildings which save NYC from the sun’s heat and give it shade. And, also the fact that NYC is an island.Those tall buildings made me wonder, “Is it ever possible to rebuilt them if they are all destroyed by a flood?” As i walked through the streets of NYC looking at those buildings i thought to myself, “It takes a lot of courage for the workers to build such extremely tall buildings. NYC is an asset to other nations that there is nothing impossible and the word impossible says, “I’m possible.”
The negative side of NYC that struck me is the trash on the roads, heavy traffic everywhere, pedestrians not following the law. NYC was crowed and dirty.This place reminded me of my home town Hyderabad (in India). It is also one of famous cities in India and just as crowded as NYC and people from others states come to visit it. I am from Maryland and hence, i did notice a lot of differences between the two states.It is very rare to see people walking on roads except in downtown and DC in Maryland. But, as soon as i entered NYC looking around i see more people than cars in the streets and on roads.I literally felt like i was in a different country looking at the most busiest streets.Another thing that surprised me were the taxis on the roads.Here in MD you have to  call for a cab but there you can see them every where.I think that makes sense because NYC is a tourist place and people from different states and all over the nation go there to visit.Here in MD if you walk 2 miles or so you feel like you walked a lot, but we all walked about  20-30 miles in NYC from our hotel (Double tree) to the waters at the end of the city. This is quite shocking for me because, am not a person who would walk long distances, but without my knowledge i did by looking around the buildings, people, shopping on streets etc the time went by quick.

Finally, out of all these fun times i also had the most amazing time which was when we got on a cruise. It was a hot day.However, as soon as we got on the boat the cold breeze from the waters and the moving boat cooled us down. It was an amazing view from the boat. The cruise was about 2 hours long and took us around the city. It also took us near the Statue of Liberty, it is beautiful.To warp it up all i would love is say is I’m totally not surprised when people say, “NYC is awesome and the best City ever.”
