New York Day 4

New York was over a month ago and looking at these pictures make me miss my girlfriends.  The Chelsea Market is a must visit.  It started off as just a market but they've now added small restaurants and stores. Next to it is the high line, which I thought was alright.  If you have time, sure why not, take a look.  But it's something you can skip.  We went back to the MET after to go into the museum and I personally like museums so I enjoyed it.  I'm glad I packed plenty of summer dresses and light weight tops because I was definitely breaking a sweat from the heat.

New York Day 3

On the third day in New York we probably did the most walking.  The weather was warmer and warm weather + a lot of walking + empty stomachs makes everyone tired and not happy.  We first walked to the MET and then walked to Central Park.  From Central Park we walked to Levain Bakery, back to the park, to the subway, and then finally arrived to the Meat Ball Shop to have our first meal of the day.  You can see why we were a bit grumpy.  After eating some really delicious meatball though, we were energized and ready to continue our day.  We were in soho and being the person who planned and mapped out our trip, one thing I did not know was that many stores in soho close at 7pm.  We didn't get to shop much but it was still nice to walk around the area.  We then had dinner at Babbo, chef Mario Batali's restaurant.  I had expected more from this place and was quite disappointed.  Just not the Italian food I was expecting.  Some dishes were quite bland.  Later that night we headed out to Hudson Terrace for some fun.

New York Day 2

Day 2 in New York consisted of a lot of walking.  We went to lunch at Penelope's which was a cute little place.  We then walked along 5th avenue to do some shopping.  I finally got to play on the huge piano at FAO Schwarz!  After that was more walking to Rockefeller Center and Brooklyn Bridge.  We finally sat down for dinner at Ippudo, which was just as good as the first time.  New York is so full of life.  There's so much to do and see.  You definitely don't run out of things to do.  The lifestyle is so different compared to LA/OC that I wouldn't mind living there temporarily.  (I could never leave sunny california)
