Summer in the City - Hello New York!

What to say about New York City? I guess we can all agree that it is a vibrant city with a palpable energy wherever you are always in a crowd, regardless whether you take the subway at 3 pm or 3 am. The city that never sleeps - this holds true in every way.
There is an immense offer of activities - free concerts in the park, dance performances in old churches, jazz sessions in small cave bars, gallery openings on thursday nights, impromptu piano performances in the streets, delicious food markets with the best french fries on the planet (trust me on this one, I tested quite a few), walks on the High Line, oyster happy hours, rooftop cocktails, but also the more classic tourist attractions like some of the world's best exhibitions and museums, typical New York eateries like Magnolia Bakery and Shake Shack, shopping on 5th Avenue and watching the sun set from the top of the Rockefeller building, which is, albeit its touristy touch, one of the highlights of the trip!
I could rant on about the innumerable fun things New York has to offer but I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves....
