New York City (pt 2)

This one’s a bit long; you’ve been warned.

One morning, we picked up delicious, way-too-large bagels from the Brooklyn Bagel and Coffee Company before walking along Highline Park.

Previously-used railroad tracks can be found along the elevated park.

Being in NYC, I had to visit the World Trade Center memorial.

We walked through Wall Street (nothing fancy on a weekend) to get to Brooklyn Bridge.

That skyline!
That skyline!

I see the Statue of Liberty!

Ran into a concert under the bridge (in DUMBO).
I was clearly captivated.

We met up with one of Graham’s friends, T, who was so unbelievably kind to us and drove us around NYC, simply so I could see the skyline at night. All but one of the photos failed… and I thought I mastered the art of taking a photo through a car window!

We had the opportunity to go to the Met Museum and check out the rooftop garden amongst other exhibits.

I love that skyline!

I stuck this in because I liked my hair 😀

I’m in love with the detailing everywhere.

I didn’t much care for the pictures as I did for the frames they were in…

This was the end of a gun.

We had a lot of recommendations for places to go (thanks, Facebook friends!) so one of the places we found was McSorley’s Old Ale House, where they only serve dark or light beer, and didn’t let women in until 1970. Cool vibe!

We also went to The Jeffrey and The Pony Bar for awesome craft beers. I *highly* recommend them!

Our car was parked in New Jersey, after we met a really awesome new friend at our Airbnb in New Hampshire (visit anytime, anywhere, J!). He also recommended a cool spot to see the entire NYC skyline. It didn’t disappoint!!

NYC wasn’t quite as inviting and welcoming as London, so I’m not sure it’ll be one of my top go-to destinations over the next few years, but it was really cool to see what all the hype was about.
