New York City is where dreams come true and where moments are fleeting. New York City is where I first fell in love with John. New York City is where I cry every time I hear the opening number of a Broadway show. New York City is and will always be my favorite city. Because every time I go there I find something new. Because everyone has their version of the "best" places to go. And because it is where anyone can feel empowered and free.
Now, this guide to Manhattan may not be what you are expecting. I'm not going to tell you that if you go to Times Square, you're just another tourist. Although I avoid it like the plague when I visit the city, I think it's a place everyone should experience at least once. People from all over the world go there to see what it's all about, and for a lot of them, it's what they think America is. Go there with an open mind and know that there are going to be millions of people and there's nothing you can do to avoid it. Go there for a couple of hours and then get straight outta dodge!
