The Empire State Building

When walking around New York City, most likely you have walked by the Empire State Building a bunch of timesimage without even knowing it… I know I have. Every time I go to look for it I never recognize it from the base; looking up is the key to pin pointing it… And when I mean looking up, I mean way up. This iconic building has has been displayed in loads of films, books and photographed more than most buildings in the world. It sparkles on New Years, lights up red and green during Christmas and even wears it’s heart on its walls on Valentine’s Day. It’s a beautiful artistic creation of architecture.

NYC… The City That Never Sleeps

 

imageNew York City.. The one city that never sleeps… full of life and diversity. This is an amazing city that you can instantly feel the beat off the streets, from the subways up to the sky-rises. As we left JFK, took the AirTram and jumped on the subway. In the middle of the subway car a group of entertainers turned up their boom box, the commuters gave them some space. The beats of their music echoed through the cars and these young kids danced for entertainment… And of course money; then I knew I came back to one of my favorite cities.

After dropping our stuff off at our hotel, we headed into the city from Little Ferry, New Jersey…. Which I’m not sure I would completely recommend staying in Jersey (too long of a commute, especially if the city is where you want to spend your time; I know I did). As my first day back in New York, all I wanted to do was to just wonder and Go Lost. Keep Reading…

Planning New Orleans…

 

Louis Armstrong said, “Way down yonder in New Orleans, in the land of dreamy scenes, there is a garden of Eden”. New Orleans is the birth place of one of the greatest artists in jazz history. Louis sings about his hometown, with his raspy deep recognizable voice, brings images of jazz bands playing in The French Quarter and festivals of life and culture.  

Growing up, Louis Armstrong was not played, nor was jazz music in our house. The first time I heard, “What a Wonderful World”, I knew there was something special about where that style of music and Louis came from. Keep Reading…

Washington D.C. in the making…

After a few days in New York City, Go Lost will venture to The United States’ Capital, Washington D.C. I am very excited about this trip, since I have never been, but yet have a very limited time as to what we can see and do. The cool thing about this city is that a lot of sites and museums are freeeee…. Everyone loves that word, especially college students on a budget.

With one day travel into Washington D.C. and returning that same night by train, this part of our trip has to be planned well. This will not be an easy task, seeing that America’s capital has a plethora of museums and monuments to visit. Keep Reading…
