NYC: The City

The view from the 86th floor was spectacular!

We walked a couple of miles from our hotel to The Empire State Building on Saturday morning. They let you off on the 80th floor to see exhibits, take in the view, and queue up again for the elevator. There was about a :20 wait in that line, so we climbed the stairs for the last six floors (which was actually more like eight)!

And we strolled over to the Chrysler Building, only to find the lobby closed that day (BOO!).

On Sunday, we walked back up to Times Square where the Spring/Break show was located, through Washington Square Park, Union Square, past the Flatiron Building... so thankful for relatively nice weather!

I definitely earned those oysters and, especially, the beer that went with them! Yummy.

Food wasn't a huge focus of this trip, but girls gotta eat! We enjoyed a late lunch on Friday at The Cupping Room; a delicious cheese plate on Friday and breakfast on Sunday at our hotel; lunch at Heartland Brewery; a little snack & beverage at Kenn's Broome Street Bar; oysters at The John Dory Oyster Bar; Tribeca Bagels; and one very fine splurge at The Mercer Kitchen.

We never made it to the Whitney, Tenement (suggested by Carole) or MoMA museums, nor to the High Line or Central Park. We'd talked about going to Club Cumming (Alan Cumming's club!) for Sunday night Drink & Draw, but didn't make it. We were pooped by the end of the day -- everyday!!

The thing about NYC is that you'll NEVER do it all, and there will ALWAYS be something (many things*) for the next time!! And I love that. I can't wait to go back.

*Knit Night on Tuesdays at Club Cumming, for one!!!

I'm so glad I have a sofa waiting for me whenever I can wrangle a ticket ... so much ALWAYS to explore - and that city cannot be beat for simply sitting with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and watching the people! I need to plan to be there on a Tuesday night - Knit Night at Club Cumming looks like fun!

We went to Heartland, too, and enjoyed it. There is SO much to do but that makes for a good excuse to always go back. Of course, it's much easier for us since it's just a 4 hour drive.

It has been far too long since I have visited NYC. Your photos make me think I need to work on a trip there! XO

ALWAYS something going on, for sure! We haven't been back for awhile, but would love to get there soon. (Tom is a Manhattan boy . . . he grew up there. Whenever we visit, his accent creeps back.) Lovely views! XO

As a native NYer I took advantage of all it had to offer. Walking is the best way to see the city, you never know what you'll see. Thanks for sharing your trip, it makes me homesick. BTW, I worked in the Empire State Building, as a office worker, on the 61st floor. It was awesome.

Wow - great photos and you always fit so many great things in when you travel! And Knit Night at Club Cumming definitely sounds like a great one to fit in next time!

Washington Square Park! It's right in the middle of NYU, where Andrew went to school. His freshman dorm was across the street from the s.e. corner of the park, and the graduation ceremony was held in the park.(15,000+ graduates! It took an hour for them to process to the "stage"! I called Andrew during a lull in the ceremony and had him wave so I could see him in the throng..

You always take my dream trips! I have never been to NYC and would love to go someday! I love living vicariously through you!
