It’s been awhile bloggers!! Here is some catch-up tunes to all of the latest adventures in NYC.
Heidi and Meredith came to visit:
Places worth noting
9/11 Memorial and Museum (Greenwich Street)
Absolutely speechless. The museum was a really beautiful, well put together memorial. There were tears throughout the museum and dead silence except for the audio tapes from the catastrophic day. I didn’t take a lot of pictures inside the museum, I really wanted to absorb everything and pay my respects. I still remember where I was the morning of 9/11, and to have that memory made me want to engage my full attention.
The reflecting pools are also really, really beautiful. There are really no words to describe the beauty and the sorrow that follows suite in these two. They are massive and just majestic. I recommend both of these to any and all tourists.
This was right in the area of the memorial. Really gorgeous views of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
Of course! Heidi and Mere wanted to walk through the park and check everything out. We stayed for a few hours just walking around and people watching, and of course taking pictures.
High Line (Meatpacking District)
Fishs Eddy (Broadway)
This place caught my eye just by the window decorations outside! It is full of household decorations and kitchen supplies, but all very quirky and goofy unique stuff. Just my style, so I bought a few things. Check out my favorites here, here, here & here.
I made a stop here on my last day in New York City. Saw they had some amazing graffiti dedicated to the MTV Music Awards. They have a gorgeous park placed beyond the ally with further graffiti on the concrete walls.
Brooklyn Bagels (8th Ave)
I love bagels. I love bread. We stopped here one morning before venturing out for the day, it has been my favorite bagel stop in NYC. Mere and Heidi definitely loved it too, as they’ve been trying to find a place in Iowa that compares. No results yet. I’ve been a couple times and have had both bagel & cream cheese and bagel breakfast sandwiches. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! The line is always out the door, but the wait is so worth it.
I stopped here my last day in NYC for a cone, because I had been dying to try it. I got mint chocolate chip with a rainbow sprinkle cone! Should have painted my nails for the photo opp!
