I'm psyched to finally share some snapshots from our time in the big apple! As I've said in my previous post, New York City was a huge ball of energy constantly bouncing around in a concrete jungle. We had a bit over a week to spend there and we definitely made the most of our time. We were staying with a good friend in Hells Kitchen, Manhattan so we were right in the thick of it and not far from Times Square. After visiting a few times we quickly learnt to stay very clear of the square if we wanted to get somewhere quickly, as it was utter chaos! There was street entertainers, roadworks, local new yorkers mixed in with thousands of tourists all marvelling at all the signs and stores crammed into this space. After we'd had our full we made our way to Grand Central station (completely beautiful - the ceiling!) where we thoroughly enjoyed our first taste of Shake Shack. For me, it lived up to the hype! A must while in NYC.
We also spent time at the NYC Library, the High Line and Chelsea Markets. The High Line provided some amazing views on the New York City streets and street art - although it was very hot when we were there so if you go in the summer I would recommend going for a walk early to beat the heat (and crowds).
Even though it was quite hot and streamy in the city when we were arrived we were so lucky to have lovely sunny weather. We spent a Saturday riding bikes through the city and then around Central Park before settling down on the grass to watch some baseball and eat some bagels. It couldn't get much better (or 'New York') than that!
