Hello! It’s been a long while since my last post, but it’s not been without good reason!
Today was the beginning of a 8 day adventure and from LAX, my sister, cousin, and I flew for 5 hours to New York for the first time. My first impression of New York was, “It’s super cold! And look at all the tall buildings!” The 30 degrees Fahrenheit weather was a big change for a Californian like me but I had some thermals to help fight off the chill.
For breakfast, we stopped by Ess-a-Bagel. I got a raisin walnut bagel and there was a 1.5 inch thick layer of cream cheese. Yummay!!!
We continued on to walk to 5th Ave (lower left) and to Rockefeller Center (lower right).
We passed by St. Patrick’s Cathedral (lower left). While walking through the streets, we passed by beautiful window displays at each boutique. The one shown below is made completely of paper (lower right).
Whilst window shopping, my cousin was excited to take a pic with a penguin. We also came across a Limited Edition Barbie Foosball table (lower right). Only ten of them were made in the world and each one costs $25,000!
For lunch, we ate street Greek food. So good and spicy! (lower left). We also stopped by Dylan’s Candy Shop and the stairs had candy pieces in the steps! (lower right).
For a super late night snack, we stopped by two dee-li-cious places: Artichoke and Pommes Frites. Artichoke serves the best artichoke pizza I’ve ever had! I’d come back to NY just to eat this again! And the fries at Pommes Frites are deep-fried twice! They even had a large assortment of strange dipping sauces…yummy!
At the end of the day, it was pretty late and we were super tired. But we ate awesome food and saw the streets of New York. On to Day Two in New York!
