See, the thing I love the most about the city I live in is that just when you think you have it all figured out it surprises you, turning something you knew into something new. When people hear the words "Times Square" they immediately think: "touristic, crowded, overrated, played out, tired of it, don't even want to go there anymore, I hate tourists". A few of which I would agree with myself, until this past weekend. When looking for this apartment last Friday, where a small get together/house warming was being hosted, me and my best friend literally circled the place about a trillion times before actually finding the small door, overshadowed by some flashy theater next to it, that lead us to a creepy hall then to an elevator that looked like it could break down any second and/or descend to some dark place where we would never come out of again. So picture this: two girls in 4-5 inch heels and big, fluffy faux-fur vests entering what seemed to be the set of Saw-whatever-sequel-it's-up-to-now (It might be the 6th or 7th, beside the point). Overall, just not a pretty picture. But to our pleasant surprise the elevator did work, and not only did it work, it brought us to one of the most breathtaking views I have ever seen in my life! The small-but-chic apartment had the perfect view of Times Square, where you can see even see the ball drop come New Years. And that's just it about NYC, you think you know the map of manhattan like the back of your hand and then things like this happen and now you look at what could probably be the most annoying place to walk through in the entire island as a beautiful, almost peaceful (from the 14th floor of course) place. Where the sound of about 20 cabs honking at once no longer bothers you and all you want to do is grab a cup of hot chocolate, sit down (despite the crisp october wind numbing your fingers) and enjoy the pretty flashing lights.
