First thoughts on New York City, USA

Made it to New York City / The USA! 
The primary agenda of my visit here is my oldest pal Dru’s wedding.
But being my first ever trip, I had to visit my dear friend Nick Gray in New York first.
He asked me to write “Quick notes about my first impressions of his country / city.”IMG_3416
Nick and me at the Metropolitan Museum of Art – he runs exclusive ‘Museum Hack‘ tours of it.Welcome to the MET
Welcome to The MET – came straight here after a 17 hour flight, BOM-KWI-LHR-JFK

All the resources I put together for my epic one month trip of the USA.

Washington Square Park – this was like a better version of Shivaji Park back home!
i was lucky to stay with Nick, just one block from this piece of green space.

Nick's note for his neighbors
Nick was kind enough to write this awesome note for his friendly neighbors,
and each one who bumped into me stopped by for introductions.
Truly heartwarming, it was just the preview of great American hospitality.

Leading an experimental life as a digital nomad, I started traveling in 2007 while choosing to shuttle between Goa and Mumbai as 'home'. An epic life-changing trip to South America an year later gave birth to this blog, Exotic Gringo.
