New York: Part One

One of the most highly-anticipated trips Kyle and I have ever taken together lived up to the hype. New York was legit. It’s a magical city and it stole our hearts in a matter of hours. We packed a lot in, maybe even too much. This trip was not about relaxing – it was about discovery. We walked away feeling inspired and full of good food, history, and people.

We spent four days being giddy tourists and taking a lot of photos. Today’s just part one of the New York madness, and covers the first few days of our adventure.

Friday Night:

Check in to the New York Palace

Coffee pick me up at Caffe Reggie (Greenwich Village)

Dinner at Minetta Tavern (thank you Emily!)


Breakfast at Ess-A-Bagel

Walk and walk and walk Central Park

American Museum of Natural History

5th Avenue

Chrysler building

New York Public Library

Grand Central Station

Dinner at the Oyster Bar

Times Square

And that’s really just the beginning! So many more places and photos to share – stay-tuned for more NYC goodness tomorrow. The best is yet to come…

Cheers to a great week!

    We head into NYC 1-2 times a year as we are within driving distance and I always see new things. Love it.

    My husband and I used to live in the city (upper west side) and miss it all the time. You guys look like you had a blast and I can’t wait to see what the NBC part is about!

    I am hanging onto every word you are writing and I’m absorbing every picture you post about this trip. NY is my dream vacation and I can’t wait to get there. Don’t leave out a single detail!;)

    Based on the amount of walking, trekking, and general romping about the city you seem to have done, I sure do hope you (both) had a pedicure at the end of the trip. I’m tired just hearing about it! But, not that tired… please, go on… tell us more! :) xoxo

    I am planning a trip to NYC this summer and I was wondering what hotel you stayed in and if you would recommend it? Also that list of restaurants you mentioned would be awesome to see : )
