New York City winter
Prior to arriving here in NYC, I thought, "Come on - there is no way this city is better than Tokyo, Paris or London. Maybe it's just hyped".
It is so much better than any of the previous.
Times Square can't really be compared to anything - It even dwarfs Shibuya, Champs Elysees and Piccadilly Circus (the closest matches).
The assortment of bars and restaurants is unbelievable.
Shopping is just another piece of entertainment, even for the most crowd-averse of beings.
The vibe, ... oh the vibe. It feels as though the whole city has a beating heart, a living soul, an edge. An overwhelming edge.
But the people live up to billing of being a little bit rude.
