My first time traveling on my own

I always dreamed of visiting New York City. Well, as a 17 year old from Germany it is not particularly easy to travel through America on your own. Eventually I managed to get a room in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in early October 2016. This picture was taken at Marcy Avenue subway station and was the first thing I really saw when I arrived. I made it. After weeks of planning and a long journey I finally stood there, nearly 4000 miles away from home, surrounded by those distinctive police sirens, ready to take the train and explore a new world. I will never forget that wonderful feeling
