According to Wikipedia, New York city receives about 47 million tourists every year. Last week, at the end of Spring, I joined the millions of tourists in the Big Apple pounding the streets and soaking up the sights and sounds. The weather was chilly for me even though the sun beat down relentlessly almost daily.
Complementing my existing inventory of cold weather clothes such as gloves, pullovers, thick jeans and snug-fitting pants and tops were new additions from Uniqlo. These were the heat-tech inner wear, tights and a light down jacket that can be easily rolled into its own bag. I also decided to invest in their over-the-knee socks.
Together with my only pair of trekking shoes from New Balance, I fitted right in with fellow tourists at the High Line, Top of the Rocks and Brooklyn Bridge.
