My roommate and I ventured to the big apple last weekend. We went to visit many friends living in the city, our close friend Heather in particular. Our first day was spent exploring the city. We began with the Guggenheim Museum. In addition to experiencing the Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, we overheard historians discuss Picaso’s early days as a starving artist and saw many pieces highlighting Italian Futurism.
Next, we toured Central Park on our way to Chelsea Market. Being winter time, the pond was frozen over so it made for a brisk walk to the subway. We managed to meet some other out-of-towners and put our smart phones to use with directions.
We made it to Chelsea to meet two friends for lunch and wandering around the market like real New Yorkers do. We chose Friedman’s for tasty sandwiches and sides. The popular restaurant was perfect for four girls to catch up on all things in life.
Upon leaving the market, we walked to the Highline to see NYC from above. It was quite cold, but luckily we all dressed for the weather. The walkway led you along the Hudson River giving a clear view to New Jersey. Who knew! We headed back to our friends apartment to warm up and get ready for the evening. The three of us lucked out with free tickets to see Matilda on Broadway (compliments to my mom and her friend). If you’re able to see a play anytime soon, I highly recommend it. Seeing 10 year olds act with such intense focus was beyond incredible.
Goodbye New York!
