Alicia Keys sang, “These streets will make you feel brand new,” referring to New York. Indeed, walking around New York City gave me a different vibe. There are so many tourists and so many buildings, I felt like nobody knows me and if I ever move here, I could start on a clean slate. Four days weren’t enough since there are a lot to do and a lot to see. When I was in Europe, the people there love New York, and now, I see why. There is something for everyone to enjoy.
