First on my trip bucket list: Washington Square Park
As you may have spied around on the interwebs, the man friend and I escaped San Francisco last week for a whirlwind NYC vacation. I've been looking forward to this trip for some time now for a number of reasons, the main two being: a.) I've been having serious summer weather withdrawals lately. While I love San Francisco to pieces, a girl sometimes needs something above 65 degrees to really don her new spring dresses and b.) I feel like every time I'm in New York, I'm rushing around for work and don't really get a chance to just get lost for no reason.
As you can imagine, there were plenty of meals and one too many cocktails to be had and it was just what I needed! New York, you sure know how to show a girl (and her man friend) a good time. We'll be back very soon!
Shhhhhhh! The Rose Reading Room at the New York Public Library // Finally seeing the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibit at The Met.
The most delicious goat cheese tart in the Upper East Side.
Obligatory hot dog shot (eaten on the Met steps. Blair would be proud). // View from our room at The Empire (I guess that would make Chuck proud?).
Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge.
Sheep's Meadow in Central Park // Watching Tom Hanks in the Broadway play "Lucky Guy" -- one word: AMAZING.
View from the top of the Empire State Building.
My first reaction to this window at Barneys: "Uh oh" as I proceeded to walk in. // The tastiest (and prettiest) treats at Lafayette Bakery.
View from the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir in Central Park
Hands down, this dress was the best packing decision. Loved wearing this around the city.
Ground Zero // The sweetest park bench dedication I've ever read.
An eerie super moon over Lincoln Center on our last evening in NYC.
