Although my New York City visit ended several weeks ago I still had some footage I wanted to get up for you, so here are the final two videos from my awesome time in the Big Apple.
This first video features a two minute interview with Alex from Guruofsales.com, who is a huge fan of my blog – so much so that he tracked me down while I was in New York, coming into Manhattan from Jersey by subway.
The video also includes exploring the markets and by far the highlight of my trip to NY – the ice cream sandwich from heaven.
The second video features a trip to Central Park, some brief footage on a tour bus over to Brooklyn with great views of the bridge at sunset, inside the world’s largest Toys R’ Us with me getting a little too excited about Lego, my day at the US Open tennis and ends with a look at the Statue of Liberty from Battery Park.
New York, well at least Manhattan where I spent my time, is an amazing place. I barely did half of what I wanted to in the week I had there. You could spend the entire week in just the museum of natural history or Soho of any of the cool little villages and hotspots. It’s definitely a city I recommend you visit if you get the chance. I’d like to live there some day myself for a few months in a row to really experience what being a New Yorker is like.
In case you are curious, we rented an apartment in the Upper West side for a week, which cost a total of $1755 USD, definitely the most expensive apartment I’ve rented so far on my travels, but for New York I wanted to splurge a little. It turned out to be in a great location, although for the price I was disappointed with the interior and the Internet wasn’t too reliable either.
Since we were rarely home the apartment’s shortcomings didn’t impact the trip too much, but as I’ve learned on my travels you can never be certain what you are going to get for your money. Sometimes I’ve been pleasantly surprised (like Vancouver), other times you’re not blown away (like New York). I’m certainly discovering a lot about how to locate short term rentals as I travel around the world this year.
I hope you have enjoyed the travel videos I post to this blog. Obviously they are not always strictly on topic, but they are certainly part of my entrepreneur’s journey. I’ve got more planned too. Next I have Montreal and Quebec City coming up (I just need to edit and produce them) and since I’m about to start the European leg of my trip the videos will keep coming.
