NYC Loving

Oh my goodness. Incredible. Delicious. Amazing. Perfect. Fantastic. <—All words to describe the weekend my sister and I spent in New York City. You’ll have to wait until Wednesday for the delicious part, though Smile.

I’m going to take you step by step through Saturday and Sunday.  I think I’ll portray it better through pictures more than words.  Let’s just say from 12:00 when we arrived Saturday afternoon until 5:00 when we left last night, the weekend was terrific.

We arrived to this hotel room (AKA tiniest room known to man).  This picture is legit the whole room:

We immediately headed to lunch at a Mexican burrito place and then made our way to walk around Central Park. While we were there, we made a pit stop at the zoo. I love me animals <3.  Especially monkeys, penguins and sea lions.

Following the zoo, we did a little more walking (I’m talking we walked for 2+ hours in total), heading back to our room to change, then headed to dinner before the best musical production I have ever seen.  And I mean it.  And that’s saying a LOT considering how many shows I’ve seen in my day.

Yep, that picture is illegal Winking smile. Total rebel. Here’s a little of what the musical was like, though! EEK.  I need to see it again!  And also, Jack Kelly, will you marry me?

Strand Books: 18 miles of books…four floor filled floor to ceiling!!  Perfect for a nerd like me. My sister definitely knows the way to my heart by finding this for us to do!

We walked over 40 blocks throughout the city Sunday and passed through NYU and also passed Grand Central Station.

Overall, fabulous trip.  A lot of what we did revolved around food (as my life typically does) but once again, you’ll have to wait until WIAW for that Winking smile.

Have you ever been to NYC? If so, what’s your favorite thing to do there?

Also, rest in peace, Micah True.  The world definitely lost a great runner :(.  For those of you who haven’t read Born to Run, you need to!

I live in Staten Island which is one of the Burroughs of NYC so I go into Manhatten a lot especially since the ferry is free lol. My favorite thing to do is hang out in the east villege.
