New York City. I don't need a Buzzfeed quiz to tell me that NYC is my spirit city. Everything I love most about life, Broadway, fashion, art and history, has a distinct home somewhere in the city.
I want to walk. I want to visit Grand Central Terminal. I want to walk down Broadway and take pictures at every big theatre. I want to "go see a mother f***in' Broadway show." I want my first meal in NYC to be a hot dog from a hot dog stand. I even want to smell the oh-so-nauseating smell of the grimy NYC streets. I want to visit a real Chinatown. I want to take the Subway down to the artsy part of the city. I want to people watch on a bench in Central Park. I want to not so coincidentally run into Lin-Manuel Miranda. I want to take the Staten Island Ferry there and back again at night, with the silhouette of the city lit up in the background. I want to see an evening show at 54 Below. I want to window shop in the Garment District, and maybe even splurge on something that costs and arm and a leg. I want to visit the Strand Bookstore. I want to go vintage shopping in the East Village. I want to see an up and coming show off-Broadway. I want to stand in the middle of Times Square and be deafened by the cacophony of taxis, cars, and people. I want to never be finished discovering the city and its hidden treasures.
I want to take in all New York City has to offer.
