New York City in 20 Photos

I figured it was time for another photo essay. And I may as well do one on one of my favorite cities in the world: New York City.

After two visits to the City that Never Sleeps in half a year, I have seen all major highlights and attractions in the city. Plus some minor ones, which are definitely fun as well. New York City was where Caroline and I spent New Year’s Eve last year, and a short and spontaneous honeymoon in June. I can’t think of better occasions for a visit, really.

But – let me stop myself there – this is a photo essay, so there’s no need for more words. If you’re interested, you can always check out and read the respective blog posts.
