Our Trip to NYC According to my iPhone

To celebrate our fifth anniversary, Rob and I headed sans toddler to NYC. Last year we spent one night away from Seb together, so going to across the boarder for 3 nights was a big deal. After we got to New York, we headed right to a Holography Studio that Rob wanted to see. Then I really wanted to see the latest trend in street art by Kelsey Montague - What Lifts You. The idea is to combine the #whatliftsyou with a statement of positivity via Instagram. It's around for the next few months if you can check it out.


Our second day was busy! The first thing we did in the morning was visit the public 9/11 Memorial. I had seen pictures of this memorial before, but it was much more stunning than either of us expected. The memorial is so large and beautiful, and the 2 waterfalls are breathtaking. We then did the Circle Line Boat tour of the Hudson River. After that, we had a Food Tour booked. If you're ever in NYC, you have to add one of these food tours to your schedule. I had done the tour of Greenwhich Village 4 years ago with my mom, so this time Rob and I did the food tour of the Chelsea Market and High Line. While I ate my cupcake and chocolate milk faster than I took a picture of them, I can assure you they looked and tasted as good as they do in the stock pic below. In the evening, we went to the Top of the Rock for a panoramic view of the city from the top of the Rockefeller Centre. Afterwards we lounged on the couches and had drinks on the terrace bar just at the base of the Rockefeller Centre.

On our last full day, we spent the morning walking around the American Museum of Natural History. Then we grabbed some street meat and walked through Central Park. We were rewarded on the other side of the park with a visit to the Sprinkles Cupcake ATMmmmmm.  That night we saw Alan Cumming and Michelle Williams (who will forever be Jen Lindley to me) in Cabaret. Cabaret is currently being performed in Studio 54 which is pretty cool.

And where was Sebastian? Having the time of his life with Gran and Grandpa...
