Favorite Photo Friday: Times Square

May 11, 2011

One year ago today I was here...Times Square in NYC, having just had lunch at the famous Roxy's Deli and getting ready to see "Anything Goes" on Broadway. 
This is what I wrote on my blog later that night when I got back to my hotel:

I had my first experience with Times Square today. I thought I was prepared for it. I'd seen pictures, I'd seen video. Regardless, I was still stunned. Because those pictures do not do it justice. I found myself out there in the middle of it all...the signs, the colors, the lights, the noise and the people...and turned circle after circle to take it all in. I have tried really hard to fit in this week. To act with confidence and like I know exactly where I am going and what I am doing...just like a native. Once in Times Square, though, I have no doubt that I looked every inch the epitome of a visitor...with "tourist" rolling off me in waves. I could not stop the awe from showing on my face.

I am aching to go back to NYC.

Great picture! I love New York, but haven't been in a long time. How smart of you to write down how you felt about it. I wish I'd done that.
