The One World building
The popularity of the US as destination for Aussies has been rocketing for a decade or more, doubling from the noughties, with one recent survey putting the Big Apple as our second most popular destination worldwide. So far the falling oil price and airfares seem to be counterbalancing our tanking dollar but I was glad to squeeze in my second visit while I could afford to. The thing is, with perhaps the world’s greatest selection of attractions on offer, New York is a destination that no matter how many visits you’d always feel the need to go back one more time….
My particular bites of the Big Apple included art, architecture, music, history, park visiting, celerity spotting, general people and passing parade watching, and a bit of shopping (or quite a bit).
Will I go back? Never say “never”.
