Did you read Parts One, Two and Three already? Read those first….not to boss you around or anything….
It was Saturday morning and we were excited to have Keith get there.
I think he figured out pretty quickly that he was on the Kays train and would now be forced to conquer the Subway also. On a side note, the flowers are pretty impressive in NYC.
First stop-lunch in Murray Hill. Guacamole heaven at El Parador Cafe. Other than the guac and margs, it didn’t really live up to its hype (sorry, Chris G). But, give me a marg and some chips and I’m golden.
Walking off the said guacamole on the Brooklyn Bridge….
It was packed. Wow–lots of people are on that bridge all of the time. Those bikers take no prisoners. They’ll run your *ss over!
It didn’t stop me from getting them out of our photos haha. Could you move over a bit please, thank you. Sorry, I needed a good pic, sue me.
The boys starting to lose their minds a bit.
Love this one.
I’ll stand here too then.
Makes me think of Fashion Week. Maybe that should be a trip with the girls one year. Who’s in??
A great way to see the Statue of Liberty…
Kinda looks like Florida haha.
The Lady and Us.
The last neighborhood I wanted to check out was TriBeCa!
It just happened to be time for Happy Hour.
Cool sports bar.
We got off the Subway at Times Square
and needed some munchies….
I told the boys to get dolled up because we were going to hang out with the cool kids that night. Meatpacking District here we come!!!
Great little bars, restaurants, even an ice skating rink at The Standard Hotel.
Cannot wait to either stay there or at the Gansevoort next time. Since it was a “no reservation” trip, we didn’t mind waiting and people-watching until we could be sat for dinner (at 11pm). It was pretty funny as we left dinner (2am) and watched the huge lines of young-ins that were just then heading out for the night. Put this old fogies to bed.
I swear you guys, you’re almost done with photos.
This is my fav pic of the trip =)
Our last night in NYC did not disappoint. We were so happy that we had saved that area for when Keith was there with us.
Superbowl Sunday meant we were saying goodbye to NYC. Loved the Waldorf!
We were told we could not leave NYC without going to Momofuko Milk Bar. So we did and CW fell in love with their cookies. So much so that we got halfway down the street and he made us go back to get more for the road.
Ready for some grub, The Buger Joint at Le Parker Meredien (thanks Erin) was our last stop.
Reminds me of The Weiner Circle in Chicago. You may be yelled at if you don’t know what you want. Love it.
As we headed to the airport, we both laughed as we saw this sign. We had said over and over how quiet the city was from our hotel. No wonder.
Thank you to everyone who gave us tons of suggestions. I already have a list of the places we’re hitting on our next trip. I was blown away by how much we were able to do without spending any money: The Letterman Show, 9/11, Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, Staten Island Ferry (Statue of Liberty) and I’m going to throw the subways in there because at $2 or so each way, that’s a steal in comparison to what a taxi would be!
It was the best last-minute trip EVA!!!
