Day in New York City

11 August 2011

















So out of the blue, Ryan and I decided to take a little day trip to New York. Coming from Texas,
this is something I have never been able to say before. The thought of traveling there was
always a huge ordeal, and was never accessible enough. Now that the beautiful city
is only two hours away from me by bus, I am just enchanted by the fact that I am so near
to so much greatness! So we took a trip to the city, not really knowing exactly what we
wanted to do, but ready for anything. We started our trip in Times Square where the bus
dropped us off and gawked at the ginormous sky scrapers and herds of people. We trekked
to Central Park and enjoyed the beauty of the nature and city life fusion (where most of
these pictures were taken). Stopped by the Met for several hours and basked in unbelievable
masterpieces, including a 'night photography' exhibit, which I found particularly neat. Hungry,
we went to the East Village for Indian food where we met up with an old friend now living
in the city. Our adventure then took us to Brooklyn where we saw breath-taking views of the
Manhattan skyline (last few photos here). We took a nice walk up the shore, and then finished
the evening in Williamsburg where we hit up a few neat vintage & book stores. We had some
amazing pizza and Brooklyn Beer, and then sadly had to call it a night at 9:00 to take the bus
back to Philadelphia.

It was a lovely day in the city and as always, left me wanting more. Be back soon, New York!

PS- Don't ask me why, but these snakeskin brogues just really tickled my fancy.

I'm very envious that you can just pop up to New York like that. I was there once for a short holiday a few years ago and loved it. Can't wait to return some day. Love your outfit...the brogues are very cute :)

Living just a few hours from New York really is amazing - there's always something incredible to do/see/eat/drink when you step off the bus or train. And no need to explain the brogues...they are gorgeous!

These photos are fantastic. You're making me a bit envious of your trip to NYC! I'm thinking about moving over there from Chicago after I graduate.

I really love your brogues! They are pretty whimiscal! They add a nice touch of quirkiness to your outfit. :]

I love living two hours away as well - I'm actually heading into NYC tomorrow for some book shopping at the Strand and some time in the Village. Also, I am a huge fan of the snakeskin brogues!

Sigh. I've never been to NYC and it is my life goal to make it there one day. I will have to plan on being there for at least a month though to get all the touristy stuff in I want to.

I love your red shorts and you are right, those snake skin brogues are fantastic!

Stitched + Adorned said...

loving the red shorts! I just bought myself a pair! and that little lace top looks great with it!

The Fancy Teacup said...

You guys’ little NYC excursion sounded like so much fun! I’ve lived all over, but was born in Texas, and yes there is something about everything being within a short distance that is quite something. And your python brogues are total eye candy.

Those shoes are pure perfection! I've rescently bought a pair of snakeskin heels (not a real snakeskin, of couse, I'm a granola girl))), but then figured out that they are a bit big on me, so I'll have to return them to the store. Oh, my sorrow)))

I would like to invite you to visit my blog because I made a video about an amazing place to spend the holidays. So if you looking for a great holidays week, you should visit the Algarve. The video that I made show you a little of what Algarve offers: beach, sun, pools, parties every nights, good feelings and much more you can image.
