NewYork - The city that never sleeps

The strenuous video-shoot never withered anyone's eagerness and enthusiasm because by 8 am, everyone was all set for the best day in NewYork.

We started with the Empire State Building which unfortunately we couldn't conquer the previous day due to overcast. Thankfully it was a clear day, so there was nothing that could stop us.. :)

The view of NY was just amazing from the Tallest building in NewYork. The wind blew at a speed of about 15 miles an hour which added to our excitement. I can say, this is one of the best sights of my life. Buildings everywhere which gave us the feeling of a Concrete Jungle.

We were in 86th floor (i believe) and Mr Naik got us the tickets for the 102nd floor. It was a observatory and the view from there was just mindblowing..

We spent quite a long time up there everyone ensuring that the sight of NewYork shall remain evergreen in our memory.Gala Time

Next stop was the Times Square, which most of us had seen in movies like The Spiderman. We split up and roamed around the Times Square where I did a bit of shopping.
Most of the times I was busy reading the Sign Boards, the colourful ads etc. I didn't realize we spent almost 2 hours in Times Square. Times Square definitely Rocks!!!

A visit to Madame Tussaud's Wax museum : It felt as though all the best things happened together on the same day. The Wax Museum was simply the best of all things we did in NewYork. We met a lot of eminent personalities there including George Bush, Bill Gates, Michael Jackson, Shakira, Superman, The Rock, Mahatma Gandhiji and the best of all, Mr Charlie Chaplin (lol..

People, be frank. Who's the better actor among us?


After a grand dinner at Chand's Restaurant along with the Naik family (where we raised a toast for their amazing hospitality and help) we called it a day..

Last Day
It was cold as usual and a few of the dancers, Raghu, Chithra, Nisha, Arya, Rashmi, Shreyanka , Shweta and me were interviewed by Asianet USA at a temple in New Jersey. All of us were dressed in traditional Indian style and the gals looked more charming than ever (lol).

We hardly had time to pack our stuffs. In a hurry we packed and vacated Days Inn and within no time we were on our way to Indiana, the next phase of our US trip.

Conclusion :
I had heard NewYork was a city of sky scrapers, the city which never sleeps, the most beautiful city, a lively city etc. Now that I've witnessed it, i just wanna say, its more than just a beautiful city. NewYork is a culture, its a way of life. And more....
