The big smoke

So (obviously) I didn't have the best camera or lenses to take to north America - maybe a good thing since my last few trips have resulted in broken expensive things. Everyone seems to ask with great expectation what I thought of New York; it was like permanently walking through a movie set. I liked it. It was crazy, chaotic, senses-overwhelming, cliche yet unfamiliar. You have to focus on the smaller things because it's impossible to get an overview, a summary, of the city. I don't have any insights that people more eloquent than me haven't said about New York - I had a really fun, humid 9 days there.
(My 2 favourite meals in NYC were from Absolute Bagels (lox bagel YUM) and Shake Shack (duh... that banana peanut butter shake tho)
