Taking a break from the hectic life of college, especially during finals, one must venture to New York City for a weekend of fun. Even during the long winter break, you can take a trip to the city. Visit your friends (or take some with you), traipse around Bryant Park or Rockefeller Center, eat some amazing food, and drop in on a party or two. New York is supposed to be the place where your dreams come true. Everything and everyone is hustling and bustling about. The people are so diverse, some nice, while others a bit mean. But what else could you ever want in a city decorated like a winter wonderland? Heck, the people dress up like Santa and Elves while walking amongst the streets!
I spent the weekend with my best friend and her friends all around the city. We went out to eat, did a little shopping, and went to a party--but that was just one day. We cooked and laughed, sometimes even cried. We braved the freezing cold and went to all of the touristy New York locations that we could. Most importantly though, we survived the subway... or rather, I survived taking the subway, especially taking it all alone at times. But when you are with friends, everything is an adventure. Even just sitting in the apartment eating Halal and cookies is a fun time. While the location is always important, it is the people you are with who make the difference.
