The Sights and Sounds of New York City


New York City is a fascinating city also as known as “The city that never sleeps.” I’ve been to New York City a handful of times and have visited mostly every tourist destination including driving to Long Island, New Jersey, and going up north as far as the Bronx Zoo.

This time, I only had a very short visit in New York City. Across the street from City Lobster is the NBC Studios Rainbow Room Observation Deck.

The hustle and bustle of New York City is full of people walking and the cars are mostly comprised of NYC taxis.


On the corner 6th Avenue and 49th street was a famous bakery called the Magnolia Bakery. I didn’t have a chance to try out their pastries, but I can tell that it was a local favorite since the bakery was jam packed.


On most corners in New York City, you can find fast food sold in a small cart. I found a pretzel vendor who was also selling hot dogs and kebabs.

Radio City Music Hall is one of the most famous NYC concert halls which features the New York City Rockettes during Christmas. The venue is used for concerts and special events throughout the year.


New York City is a walking city supported by a plethora of public transportation options. I like to walk a lot in major cities because you can see more and digest the local lifestyle. I went to Times Square at 10pm and it was crowded with police and tourists.

I was hungry and hit up a Halal food vendor and ordered a lamb and rice plate with a side salad. For $6, you get a lot of food!

For dessert, I hit up a Mister Softee ice cream truck across the street from Bryant Park. It was delicious.

I ended my night at Bryant Park and it was a happening place on a Monday evening at 10:30pm. The park closes at 11pm but there were many people couples and tourists hanging around. There was a private event with a DJ booth at Bryant Park to delight NYC locals.
