Travel | New York City | First Impressions (with gifs)

Hello world, how are y'all?

I've been in New York less than 24 hours, typing this up at 5am NY time (East time? Pacific time? Basically 9am Sunday morning London time) clearly suffering a bit from jet lag and NewYork has completely overwhelmed me. I'm not sure what to expect from the Big Apple but it's definitely something else. Here are my first impressions of New York - complete with gifs.

Getting through immigration and stepping on American soil for the first time

Realising that NYPD officers do actually carry guns.. like that's not even made up?! That sh!t is real

Being scared of how the toilet flushes. This one is for real - it's ten times worse than the airplane's and that's saying something

Also on the subject of loos - what's up with that gap in the loo doors? Like seriously?

Trying to work out the subway map. Like why are you as simple as London where everything connects?! 

Being blinded by the bright lights of Times Square

Seeing the skyline of Manhattan for the first time

Realising I'm in the same town as Blair, Serena and the rest of the gossip girl gang. And FRIENDS. And Detective Mac Taylor. 

Trying to find free wifi in town. And it not actually connecting.

How it reminds me so much of Hong Kong. Everywhere feels like a mix of Nathan Road, TST and MK all rolled into one. I can totally understand why there are so many references of HKG being the Asian version of New York. 

Okay.. so I couldn't find a gif for this but had to make the list of first impression!
Seeing how expensive Broadway shows are out here

So come on New York. Show me what you got. Something tells me you're going to steal a piece of my heart, and between you and I - I'm kinda okay with that
