I flew into Newark, NJ to meet my husband, brother, and my husband’s family for a long weekend in NYC. It was a much more productive trip than our last visit last December when it rained seventy five percent of the time.
The first day, my brother and I rambled from midtown to Central Park. We stopped in Times square, the Nintendo store, we passed by Fox News (which was surrounded by armed guards), Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, passed by Trump tower (also surrounded by armed guards), Tiffany’s (smiley face), and then to central park. Ten miles altogether, we were tired, but the day didn’t end there. We met up with my husband’s family for dinner at Ruth’s Chris.
The next day we took the subway down to the Staten Island Ferry and rode it across for a quick viewing of the Statue of Liberty. We then went to the 9/11 memorial which was a very somber moment. We went up the One World Observatory and saw the most amazing view of one of the world’s largest cities. Soho was pretty cool as was Little Italy in the midst of an annual festival. I will say, staying in Lower Manhattan is on the schedule for my next trip.
Though we did quite a lot for a couple of days, we haven’t scratched the surface. NYC is on our to do list over and over and over again because there is always some new, exciting, inspiring, and fun to see and do… In the city that never sleeps.
