So I’m sitting here on a chilly Sunday night watching a Sex and the City marathon and am thinking back to the week I spent in New York recently (lots of posts to come, yay).
Ever since I was a little girl, New York has been my favourite city. Because my parents weren’t filthy rich, I had always only visited New York through the pages of literature and imagined myself strolling through Central Park or taking afternoon tea at the Plaza Hotel.
The week I spent in this concrete jungle wasn’t nearly enough and I am itching to go back. In the meantime, here are some of my favourite quotes about New York…
