I just got back from a few days in the Big Apple with my mom and sister. A girls trip to see A Raisin in the Sun with Denzel Washington on Broadway was the perfect way to celebrate the beginning of spring. I've been to NYC seven times, and each time, I love it more than the time before. This city is just so cool. I've been having a love affair with NYC my entire life, starting when I was a child and falling in love with the movie Annie.
I had the great opportunity to review and stay at Omni Berkshire Place Hotel, and once we arrived, we hit the streets and basically walked for two days straight—as one should, when they're in New York. Why waste time in a taxi when you can see so much more by foot? (I started off in stylish boots, switched to flats, and ended up wearing a new pair of flip flips. But it was okay—it was actually warm enough to wear flip flips in NYC!)
Here's a summary of our trip to NYC in pictures:
We went to Magnolia Bakery. It was my sister's first time, and she loved the cupcakes. I did, too. I'm not a huge cupcake fan, but I think they are better than anywhere else I've tried. I always go with vanilla.
We went to Bloomingdale's to shop, and knowing I would be coming home to our never-ending winter, (sigh) I picked up a new coat. Of course.
The weather in NYC was perfection while we were there. We even enjoyed coffee outside, on a patio. And we didn't get cold! It was amazing. Of course, we're coming from months of minus 40C, so anything warmer than that, and we think it's summer.
We took in the sights, from Upper East Side, to Rockefeller Centre to the New York Public Library.
We went to the Ethel Barrymore Theatre early enough to
We ate dinner at great restaurants, we imagined we lived in Manhattan, and we had our own adventures, as we always do when we travel together.
Memories? Made. New York City is everything... and really one of my favourite places to visit. Can't wait for more adventures!
