I Heart NY :: Part I

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

I thought I would do something a little bit different for the next few posts… 

My husband and I went on a couple little adventures this month, a week-long trip to NYC and a weekend getaway to Palm Springs. I would love to share some of the pictures we took and things we did on each coast (starting with NYC). New York was the longest and we did so much, so I’ll be posting that trip in parts.

When we got to our hotel (ROW NYC), we immediately ditched our bags in the room and went to Times Square which was right down the street. That night, we had tickets to see The Lion King on Broadway. It was INCREDIBLE. Before the show, we had dinner at John’s in Times Square and it was so good! This is the best picture I got of my outfit, which is a bummer because I really liked it.

On Friday we were ready to get real tourist-y. We put on on our sneakers and went for long walks around midtown. We wandered around 5th Ave, saw the NY Public Library, The Empire State Building, and walked around Grand Central Terminal. For dinner, we went to Black Iron Burger in the Garment District because they were rated one of the best burger joints in NYC by The Zagat. We were definitely not disappointed.

We started Saturday with bagels for breakfast at Pick A Bagel because..NY! Our plan for the day was to take the subway to different neighborhoods to do more sightseeing. It was a very cold, snowy day but that didn’t curb our enthusiasm! Our first stop was Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment from SATC on Perry street and the Friend’s building on Bedford street, both in the West Village. This neighborhood was so different than midtown: quiet, serene, and upscale. Next, we got back on the subway and headed further downtown to see the 9/11 memorial, the Freedom Tower, and (inadvertently) REISS at the World Trade Center. It was all pretty incredible. Next, we hopped back on the subway and got off at Canal Street in the heart of Chinatown. We had lunch at a little hole in the wall and it was the best chinese food I have ever had. We found a great candy store in Chinatown too. They had some interesting things there besides just candy, like dried scallops and other seafood…we passed on that! We were frozen by afternoon so we headed back to the hotel to warm up and relax. For dinner we had NY style pizza which was a MUST for me on this trip! One slice is so huge, I couldn’t even finish mine. It was soooo good.

I Heart NY :: Part II coming Wednesday.
