New York City Vacation, pt 1

When I said before that Milan was overshadowing NYC I wasn't kidding – there was no plan! We literally got to our room, flopped on the bed with a map and said “Well, what should we do?”

I looked up the blog post where I asked for your advice and we started marking things on the map.

We used Thursday night for the touristy (but so stunning) Times Square.

I had no idea Manhattan was so huge! I always thought Chicago was big (and it is) but ohmigosh New York! We walked like crazy. Despite using the subway and wearing really practical shoes most of the time (I NEED to invest in a good pair of sandals), our feet took a beating. We didn’t stop all day! (you may be able to see why)

is this normal? As we were walking by a guy came up with these huge balloons and all kinds of people surrounded him taking pictures (myself included)

We finished Friday at Eately which was crazy on Friday night, but delicious and a lot of fun.
