Wow, hi followers! I know I have been completely MIA lately but, I just went on a super fun trip to NYC and wanted to share some photos with you guys. I can catch you guys up on all the boring stuff later!
I remember the first time I went to New York City and I absolutely fell in love and said to myself this is where I want to be. Fast forward 5 years and I still get that feeling every single time I visit.
The weather was freezing cold this time so my mom and I focused our attention on going to museums. Shopping for me isn’t really a priority since I have tons of clothing and everything is super expensive.
Here is a list of the major places I visited while I was there for 5 days.
- The Met
- Ripley’s Believe It or Not
- Chelsea Market
- Black Tap
I hope you enjoy my photo diary! If you know any cool spots in NYC that aren’t “touristy” please comment! I am always looking for cool places to visit.
The drive is about 8 hours long. My mom drove the first 4 hours and then we switched. This meant that I had to drive through the city. Let’s just say that the lanes are a suggestion. Also, if you have to switch lanes don’t hesitate and don’t be afraid to get hit. All in all, I handled it pretty well but my mom was a little scared in the passenger seat.
Since we got to the hotel later in the day, we decided to go to the Ripleys Believed It or Not museum in Times Square. Normally, we wouldn’t choose to do something like this but, we wanted to fill our time with something different. Also, I hate Times Square with a passion. It’s one of those places where you only need to go once.
MoMA was our next stop on this trip. I was really excited about this because I have never been able to go! We started at the top level at worked our way down. I would highly recommend this way to anyone who visits any museum. If you think about it, it’s honestly the most logical way to do it. This was by far my favorite part of the trip!
On this day we also went to eat at Black Tap. You will probably recognize this restaurant because the milkshakes are super famous. I would highly recommend Black Tap. The service was really good and the food came out very fast. But, a burger is $18….
This $15 milkshake was worth every penny. I decided to get the Cookies and Creme one. That giant cookie is actually a massive oreo ice cream sandwich!
This day out of all the days was the most interesting day. The temperature was freezing and we got stuck in a snowstorm. I didn’t pack properly so I wore suede boots and by the time we got outside my toes were soaking wet and I couldn’t feel them. This resulted in my mom and I having to find a store that had rain boots. Thank you Payless, I owe you big time.
Since it was snowing like crazy we spent most of our day in The Met. Let me just say I have seen enough Renaissance paintings to last a lifetime. The museum was massive and not to mention there are two other museums that you get to see when you purchase a ticket. By the end of this day we were cold, tired, and over museums.
On our final full day in NYC, we decided to go to Chelsea Market. I didn’t take many pictures due to the fact that I go there almost everytime we visit. On the day that we went, it was international women’s day and we were able to get flowers for free. The flowers were beautiful and it was such a sweet gesture. I wanted to go to Dumbo on this day but, I was so tired that I forgot. Dumbo is a must if you ever visit the city!
On the fifth day, it was time to leave. It’s really depressing to go to NYC and then go back to school. Hopefully, I will be able to live and work in the city but, until then I will continue to visit this amazing city any chance I get.
