What interested me enough to influence my thinking is its culture. I visited MOMA and Broadway and they are so beautiful that it felt surreal and unreal. For the first time, I visited MOMA and saw the works of the masters personally and not just from books. That visit in a way, elevated my sense and standard of expression having been exposed to the magnificent works of the masters. My visit to the Broadway plays was so surreal. I watched Cats, King and I and the Phantom of the Opera which made me wanted to watch more and more. I was not interested in plays before because I thought they are boring and for old people but when I saw the Broadway play with its magnificent production, my attention was glued to it. The major influence of New York to me was that it made me interested in the arts which I used to find too boring.
