Well, we managed to do it all on this trip. We stayed at a hostel, a hotel, an AirBnB spot and a friend's home.... all within 5 days. Non-stop goodness. That's what this trip was. Ever since the beginning of last year, I had had an urge to go back to New York and I didn't think it would happen. But Bri called me up one night and said, "Let's just do it." So with no hesitation, we bought our tickets and were on a plane in early September for one last summer adventure.
I loved (almost) everything about this trip. (We had a few mishaps with plane delays and a sketchy hostel situation). I managed to see so many friends out there: Ty, who I had a met a few years earlier at Coachella through a mutual friend, happened to be out there the same time we were so we met up one evening and scootered around HIghline. Jennah and Shane... friends of mine who recently moved up to Syracuse. (You may recall their wedding here). Andrew, who I met to Brooks with a few years back... I hadn't seen him in about 3 years... and finally our friend Lyndsay who was out in New York studying creative writing for the semester.
We walked through Central Park, we went up the Top of the Rock annnnd the Empire State building. We saw a Jimmy Fallon monologue, we drank Blue Bottle Coffee. We stopped by the Mast Brothers Chocolate store in Williamsburg. We visited the MoMA. We caught a train up to upstate New York. We saw Niagara Falls and walked over to Canada. We caught a cab and nearly missed our flight home. We had an incredible time.
