The reason why I was fond of DC was because of its Romanesque buildings. Apparently, anyone can arrange a visit to the White House, but I didn’t know that.

New York City is generally seen as one of the best cities in the world, and indeed countless cities, including my hometown, were modeled after it.

And it’s true that many impactful events happened in the Big Apple, what’s with it being a historical capital and the site of Stonewall.

I kept missing the closing time so I didn’t go to the statue, but one could get on the free ferry to observe it from a distance. It’s very small.
