I Heart New York: Day One in NYC.

Greetings from the Big Apple!

I can’t believe it has been almost three weeks since my last post. I’ve wanted to get on here and blog but, with it being the Christmas season, I’ve had a hard time finding the time to sit down and actually write. You know?

Anyways, my Christmas was wonderful and I plan to share some photos in an upcoming blog post, but for now, here is a recap of our first day in New York City.

We arrived around seven on Wednesday evening and headed into Midtown for drinks and dinner. Very mellow and laidback.

Yesterday we woke up and headed into town to do some sightseeing.

I had to get a picture with Elmo (the little girl that I nanny can’t get enough!)

Of course, NBC Studios. I love The Today Show!

For lunch we enjoyed Thai food in the Upper East Side then headed to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

We couldn’t decide between M.O.M.A. and the Met but we were both really pleased with our choice. We loved viewing all of the different kinds of art and they even had a special exhibit on my favorite, Andy Warhol and Faking It: Manipulated Photography Before Photoshop. Both exhibits were pretty cool.

For dinner, we stumbled upon a little pub off of Bleecker Street. SO DELICIOUS! I haven’t enjoyed pub food in quite some time but this was well worth it!

This morning we are headed out to the Staten Island Ferry (not before grabbing some coffee!) and then to lunch at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria! Not sure what else the day will bring 🙂

    1. Thank you Hilary! You should definitely get there when you can. We actually made the trip fairly cheap. We stayed in a B&B in Brooklyn, bought the $30 weekly subway cards, ate breakfast with food we brought from home (protein bars, apples, peanut butter sandwiches) and did a lot of free activities. You should definitely get there if you can 🙂 Highly recommend!

      1. I am hoping to go in the next couple of years. Thanks for the tips! When we went to San Fran we did the same thing (ate breakfast with food we brought, walked as much as we could and used my Dad’s hotel points). It made an expensive city a little more affordable. Your pictures are definitely an inspiration to start saving for a future trip!
