Spring Break in NYC

I recently got back from MYC as I was there for spring break and so excited to finally be able to go through and edit my photos with the new Samsung Galaxy S9+ that I picked up at Target. I’m having so much fun playing with the phone as there are so many new features such as the following.

  • Mechanical dual aperture that can adjust depending on the lighting.
  • Super Slo-mo feature that automatically creates GIFs from your footage.
  • Infinity display with an edge to edge screen not only creates a sleek look, but it is ideal for all mobile viewing.
  • Customize your color in lilac purple, midnight black, and coral blue.
  • Live Translation- See the world in new ways! The camera that can instantly read what your eyes cannot. Get real time-translation when you need it.
  • Intelligent Scan- the camera that recognizes you instantly. It is a new technology that combines face recognition with iris scan to make unlocking simple even in low light.
  • AR Emoji allows you to create an augmented reality version of yourself simply by taking a selfie. Then share your real-life feelings as emoji stickers and videos.

While I was in NYC for the week I got to do and see so much and did not stop taking photos while I was there. Check out my trip in the photos below.

360-degree views of the New York City skyline from Top of the Rock, the six-level observatory atop the Art Deco skyscraper!

I was so excited that the Radio City Music Hall Backstage Tour at Rockefeller Center was on our list of things to see. It is one of the largest theaters in the US and hosts many special events such as the Tony Awards, MTV Video Music Awards and the annual Christmas Show starring the world-famous Rockettes. The stage is amazing in person and hoping to come back and see a show here.

The next day we went to the Brooklyn Bridge, the largest suspension bridge in the world, where we took a stroll halfway across it and took some pictures of Manhattan’s skyline. From the Brooklyn Bridge, we ventured to the Subway which was a first for me and took it to Grand Central Station.

I was amazed at how big Grand Central Station really was. Did you know that 500,000 people pass through it daily? We took a stroll through the terminal and ate lunch.

Next, we boarded the Staten Island Ferry, where we got the perfect view of The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island from the deck. Upon leaving we saw the skyscrapers and bridges of Lower Manhattan.

We visited the National September 11th Memorial and Museum. It was quite an emotional site and features two enormous waterfalls and reflecting pools, each about an acre in size, set within the footprints of the original twin towers. The layout and design are truly special and a site to see when visiting NYC.

If you want to shop Times Square was the place to go. There are plenty of shops to find just about any type of souvenir you were looking for. It was so lit up that at night it still looked like daytime.

You can leave New York City without seeing a Broadway show. We choose Aladdin at the New Amsterdam Theater and I think we picked a good one. Genie and Iago characters stole the show and I would definitely go back and see it again.

I cannot wait to book another trip to NYC again and explore more of the city. Next time I will add Central Park along with some other destinations to visit while I’m there and I will for sure bring along my Samsung Galaxy S9+ to take more photos.
