#5: I ♥ New York
This year, I was lucky enough to go to New York City — twice! Once in March, a second time in September. Since my sister Shannon moved to New York/New Jersey last year, I was eagerly awaiting the opportunity to visit. I hadn’t been back to the Big Apple since 2009 and was desperately overdue to see some Broadway musicals. Both visits only confirmed one thing for me: I ♥ New York!!!
Both visits were jam-packed with so much to see and do. I walked 30,000 steps a day in March, saw several great musicals, explored NYC’s best museums, and enjoyed great pizza. In September, I also went on a diner tour of New Jersey diners.
My last time in New York City, I was in grad school for historic preservation. I hadn’t yet seen the overwhelming inventory of historic buildings and neighborhoods. Walking the streets of SoHo for the first time, I fell in love with the gorgeous cast iron facades. I still haven’t gotten to see everything on my architecture to-do/see list, but I’ll be back in April and hope to check a few things off my list!
Here’s a few of my favorite sites and moments from my New York trips. You can find all my New York photos tagged on instagram here.
