DC–NYC Trip 2014 | Part 2

Here’s part 2 of our family trip (see part 1 here!). We spent a week in NYC after our weekend in DC, and we had a blast! This is a huge photo-heavy post, but we did so much! My feet feel tired just looking at where we went!


chowed down on dollar pizza outside Times Square for lunch
ate delicious lamb and chicken kabob truck food for dinner
went to a Mets vs. Yankees Game at Yankee Stadium (go Mets!)
walked through the beautiful Central Park
listened to hippies sing Beatles songs and paid tribute to John Lennon in Strawberry Fields
ate amazing Chinese food with fresh egg noodles
walked along the high line (an old subway track turned into a garden),
went to Jordan’s amazing grad art show in Chelsea
scarfed down chicken and waffles at Amy Ruth’s (still daydreaming of those)
wandered through the Museum of Natural History
shopped for fun pillow fabric at Mood (from Project Runway!)
walked the Brooklyn Bridge and ate insanely good Brooklyn-style pizza,
browsed Chelsea Market and ate fresh lobster
celebrated with Jordan and his family for his graduation from grad school from SVA (woo-hoo!)
ate delicious pastrami sandwiches
listened to an amazing jazz show with the Terell Stafford Quintet at the Village Vanguard
wandered through the Brooklyn Flea Market
ate lunch at Smorgasborg and got some delicious artisan cookie dough peanut butter (obsessed)
meandered in the Financial District to see where my dad used to work next to the Stock Exchange
caught a glimpse of Lady Liberty from the shore
had our traditional Bailey shrimp dinner and amazing cake made by my sister Allison
ate delicious bagels for breakfast and tried not to cry all the way home on the bus.
I can’t wait until Christmas so we can all be together again!
