If you’ve been reading the blog this last week, you’ll know that I took a trip to New York City last weekend. It was my second time in the city, but really my first true vacation there. It’s funny – in popular culture, NYC is not just A big city, for many of us it’s THE big city. When I think about culture, trends, ideas, news, fashion, architecture, action, I think of NYC. Not Chicago, not San Francisco, definitely not New Orleans. So spending the weekend there was a dream for me. Yes, I know that makes me sound hopelessly simple, and maybe it’s true. After all, I did grow up in a tiny country town with just over 2,000 people. The first time I drove into New Orleans, I was taken aback by the millions of sparkling lights. I can’t imagine what would have happened to my brain if New York would have been my first real city.
Last weekend, I spent three and a half days trying to fit in a little of everything New York had to offer. I didn’t do that bad of a job, either. I met up with a friend for drinks, ate food from a street vendor, saw tons of tourist attractions, experienced the beauty of Central Park in full bloom, and even caught some cool street performances. The only thing I didn’t get to do was go shoe shopping, but we’ll fix that next time 🙂
Here are a few shots from my trip…
Next up, I’ll share photos from our trips to Madame Tussaud’s and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, plus some from South Street Sea Port and MY FIRST BAGEL IN NYC (ooohh!). Stay tuned!
