On the last weekend of 2013 Andy and I had the chance to jet off to NYC for a quick weekend trip. As most of our little adventures go, we focused mainly on food, drinks and doing whatever struck our fancy.
Originally I had planned an..enterprising…agenda that had us up and down the city. Andy quickly ix-nayed that. We decided that every time we go to NYC we will stay in a new neighborhood and see everything there is to see on foot.
This trip we stayed right in the middle of everything, just blocks from Times Square and Fifth Avenue. Keep in mind this was just days from New Years Eve so it was nuts!
Our first night we visited Times Square. Insanity. Pure insanity. Not for the claustraphobic.
We hit up a cute, trendy restaurant for dinner.
Funny thing about NYC. The buildings are so close together that although our hotel room had a window, it was to the alley. And since the next building was so close no actual daylight came into said alley. Thus we slept way way in. This cup of coffee and delicious pastry really should have been considered lunch.
Never mind that though, we had no problem squeezing in the next meal just an hour later.
We wandered into Grand Central Station, so much like our own Union Station.
Andy and I parted ways around 3 that afternoon. He made it back to the hotel. I waited in the longest line ever to get theater tickets. But at least it was a successful wait and later that night we saw Big Fish.
Our last day was a little bit of a bummer. It poured cold rain most of the day. We managed to slog our way through much of it.
