New York #2


We’ve moved!

Since my last post (which you can catchup on here) I’ve moved to the Meatpacking district in Chelsea. After the hustle and bustle of Time square, being here has been a blissful retreat! It was definitely a must do to see the big city and experience all the lights, but truth be told I was so happy to be moving into a more relaxed area.

Chelsea is fantastic; I can definitely imagine me living here. The area still has plenty of people and things to do, but the pace is just so much slower and you can walk around without being shoved by busy passers by or getting stuck in mile long queues of people.

If you’re ever in New York, I would highly recommend coming to stay in this area if you get the chance. There’s a lot on to offer from the Chelsea Market where you can pick up your groceries while browsing through the vintage stalls, boutique sellers and racks of sample sales, to the highline – a rescued train line that originally ran through the heights of the buildings that has now been converted into a stunning garden park, right up above the roof tops where you can relax, take a stroll, have a picnic and admire the views. There’s also a range of lovely restaurants and cafes where you can pick up pretty much any sort of cuisine you fancy, and some great bars and clubs to finish of the night.

Some of the clubs are definitely in the pricier range with strict dress codes, but if you’re like me and happy looking for somewhere to chill after a long day, there’s also some great hidden places with a relaxed chilled vibes, and plenty of roof top bars which I loved.

While I’ve been here I also took in a tour (official tourist here!) of both the uptown and downtown parts of New York. It was the one thing on my list I have to admit I wanted to avoid, but I have to admit now I’ve done it I’m really glad I did. I got to get a real feel for the different districts of New York pretty quickly and work out just where I’d like to visit and the shops, restaurants and activities I wanted to check out – so not a wasted pass time at all.

On the tour we also got to stop off wherever we wanted to I was able to check out Hard Rock cafĂ©, the Yankee stadium, some amazing Catherdrals and churches, and Ground Zero which was an incredible experience - I’m going to be writing up a post all about it very soon.

Once again still having a great time in New York, and loving Chelsea but my next stop is just around the corner.

Find out how I’m getting on in Brooklyn very soon!

Bye for now!
