337. NYC - June 2013 | Favourites

Just got back yesterday from NYC..miss it a lot! The above is my favourite photo & favourite moment of the whole trip.

It seems my blog has officially turned into a travel blog - particularly for New York. I just scrolled through the past few pages and it's filled with posts from my previous times there. Unsurprisingly I wasn't able to do live-blogging once again.
I arrived last Thursday afternoon. First we took a long walk around Brooklyn/Brooklyn Bridge/Brooklyn Bridge Park. The rain started that evening and continued on until Friday. On Friday, in the middle of a tropical storm, we went to The Met. It was my first time there..I loved it! Saturday the rain stopped so we took a roadtrip to the Catskill Mountains, where I was able to cross of one thing on my list of things to do before I die ("lie under the stars" - I know this could've been done anywhere but I was waiting for the perfect place). The stars are amazing up there!! Don't have any photos unfortunately - pretty sure the view would've been impossible to capture. Sunday we strolled around Battery Park, had dinner then drinks at Top of the Standard (my favourite spot). My flight home was Monday afternoon. There were heavy rains so my original flight got cancelled & I got bumped to the next flight. Stressful day but made it home. Not liking being back home now though..anyways, here is a photo summary of the trip:


View from the plane + the familiar wait for a cab at LGA.


One thing I love about NYC is that there's sooo many parks and nice areas to walk around. This is Brooklyn Bridge Park. Perfect view of the skyline.


Awesome candy shop! Got a huge bag of gummy candy that lasted me all weekend.


Inside the Met on a rainy day. Great collection of art and I also really liked the interiors/building itself.






Wonderful dinner that evening at La Grenouille





We drove around Woodstock in the Catskills, & I had the most delicious pancakes for breakfast


Tiffany & Co on Wall Street


My favourite hotel in NY!


Top of the Standard / Boom Boom Room


View from sitting on the toilet


Cartier windows + my favourite photo once again.

  7. Brooklyn Bridge Park, that's where my husband and I got married (for the second time). It just seems to lack of a better word washed out after the hurricane.
