Hello again, and Happy Halloween!
I frequent my introductions with “I haven’t posted in awhile…” or something along those lines.
I need to stop doing this.
Anyway…I have been living at home in a small town for a little over a year now, and it makes me crave the city. Thankfully, I was able to visit my cousin, Katy who lives just outside of NYC. Our times together are always well-spent!
We first visited a food festival in Brooklyn, where I tended to look nine months pregnant in every photo (it was the wind – I swear)!! I ended up getting freshly-squeezed peach lemonade and truffle fries with aioli for ‘brunch.’
Next, we visited the High Line in west Manhattan. The last time I visited NYC, the High Line was still under construction; it was definitely worth the wait and the strong winds! We once again took several photos, and I had more to eat (I think dark chocolate gelato this time?).
We decided that the wind was a tad overwhelming and headed to Queens. Katy mentioned something about the “Museum of the Moving Image.” I was sold!
Katy and I then agreed that margaritas were suddenly necessities and ventured over to the Chipotle test kitchen. They even had queso, so this was basically my heaven-on-earth…
The infamous Fearless Girl was on our way to the Staten Island Ferry, which led to us posing with her immediately!
Although the ferry might have been windier than the High Line, it was SO worth it! We attempted to take several Titantic-posed photos, but nothing turned out as we hoped.
Unfortunately, we never met any of the Impractical Jokers either. Bummer…
On my last day, Katy, my aunt Jenn, and I visited Brooklyn again; there was a market going on and we decided to check it out. It was a beautiful day, thus making it even MORE difficult to say goodbye to the city and my family.
NYC? 10/10 would recommend. I have visited the Big Apple three times now, and each time has been incredible (my rating would have been a 17/10 if I could’ve met Murr, Joe, Sal, or Q)!!
