Revelations in “New York, New York”

“New York, New York”, the city that never sleeps and one that I recently visited on an oh-so-spontaneous trip across the Atlantic – oh, and it was also my first solo trip; bring on the pressure!

Update: This competition is now closed. The winner has been confirmed: Zarina de Ruiter – congratulations!

Did you know that the average episode of SATC costs $120,000 dollars to rent space in New York alone? That’s before the costs for actors, extras, crew and equipment have been factored in. It doesn’t come cheap at all! Continue reading Sex and the City with On Location Tours, New York
