Part 3 of a series following Portland and New Hampshire following a 7 or 8 state (I can’t remember) trip I took the last two weeks. I am very behind on both blogging and comments as I am still jetlagged and exhausted but bear with me as I catch up. : )
I figured I’d do a mostly wordless post with some scenes from my short stint in New York City. Kentucky, North Carolina, and Boston may be ignored as I somehow ended up with about five useable pictures. What are you going to do?
I can no longer indulge in the best street-card food—hot dogs—but I’ll settle for a soft pretzel the size of my face for a buck, please.
Ever since I lived in New York when I was younger, the black and white cookie has remained one of my favorite desserts. I like the white part a bajillion times better than the black, but this time upon finding out that some places do “all black” or “all white” cookies, I had to stick to the classic. Just felt wrong.
Had to see my favorite show, Rent, off-broadway while I was in town… which meant I had to buy a new $18 dress to wear.
99 cent pizza at midnight should probably be illegal.
(That’s my “I’m happy because I ran 4 miles quicker than 8:30 pace which is really good for me and did I mention I’m sweating and dehydrated and only ate street food the day before and man I need a bagel” face.)
I do love New York. I feel like I’ve spent so much time in the city that it feels comfortable and I don’t feel pressured to do any particular activities, but I appreciate how unique it is compared to every other city in America. I almost had a heart attack when I was wandering through Hell’s Kitchen at 11:30PM looking for dinner and there were TONS of places that were open—all I can get after 9PM in my SF neighborhood is booze or junk food! So cool. I feel a little claustrophobic in NYC—I need my green space and quiet neighborhood—BUT I do love to visit.
TIme to get some SLEEP and get caught up on life. New updates coming soon.
Ever been to NYC? What are your favorite parts about the city?
