Actor Sonakshi Sinha seems to have made an awesome trip out of her IIFA Awards gig. The actor, currently in New York, is giving us major wanderlust goals with her Insta feed. She has even created a legit hashtag to document her journey with #sonastravels. Looks like the actor is all set to be a bonafide travel blogger and, by the looks of it, we wouldn't mind tuning into her travel vlogs.
From taking in the urban culture with broadway shows to cooling her heels in Central Park and, of course, taking Insta-perfect shots against the many graffiti-ed walls in the NYC, Sonakshi seems to enjoying the Big Apple. Though it seems that she is yet to visit the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and the works, you can totes draft a New York itinerary with these Sona-approved hangouts:
New York has over 70,000 miles of rivers and streams, but you have to make a trip to Hudson River in earnest, especially if you are into history. The desi connection to the river runs back to the pre-Independence era. Yup, it's named after Henry Hudson, an English sailor for the Dutch East India Company, a competitor of the British East India Company, who brought in the colonial rule in India. For the non-history buffs, you can totes go for a glam sail on the river like Sona.
One of the most famous landmarks of the city, the Brooklyn Bridge is one of the longest suspension bridge in the world and has often played muse to many artists such as painter Andy Warhol, poet Jack Kerouac, circus entertainers as well as in movies like Godzilla and Spider-Man. So, get inspired by Sona's romantic night walk on the bridge vibes during your trip.
Any hipster worth his or her mettle should not skip Soho area in lower Manhattan that is famous for being the abode of the artsy folks. The Harajuku of New York, Soho is where the catwalk gets its claws with its trendy boutiques. And a trip to the Big Apple is incomplete if you don't grab an image against a graffiti wall. Props if you manage to snag a selfie with artist Banksy's street art.
Filmy-buffs, this should definitely be your next pit-stop. For starters, the Stomp show in the Orpheum Theatre inspired Sonakshi Sinha to 'pick up my drumsticks again.' Need more deets? Their website describes the show thus: Matchboxes, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters and more fill the stage with energizing beats at STOMP, the inventive and invigorating stage show that's dance, music and theatrical performance blended together in one electrifying rhythm.
One of the most-filmed locales in NYC, a historic landmark as well as the lung of the city, Central Park is a must-visit. From picnics on the lush grass to feeding the ducks, you can also rep your desi roots like Sonakshi in Kolhapuri chappals.
A short ride from New York, we bet you know New Jersey from the infamous Jersey Shores reality show. Well, as Sonakshi shows, there's definitely more to the place than Snooki and Mike, the situation.
