I always dreamed of having a perfect summer in New York. What I forgot to factor in, was the fact that I work 40+ hours a week and didn’t make enough money to do the things I truly want: travel and eat lots of food. Fortunately for me, I’m surrounded by some pretty amazing people who helped make my first summer in New York pretty great.
After looking through most of my photos, I can tell you I spent a significant amount of time at sporting events, running around Manhattan, apartment searching, and trying new restaurants.
Here’s some photos that perfectly capture my first summer in the Big Apple.
We made it! Sorry for not posting earlier – I think I was just so gosh darn excited to be back In my old stomping grounds. As soon as we arrived, we grabbed our bags and hopped In a taxi ( which to my surprise was a lot more expensive than driving in from JFK). Once we got to our lovely hotel we decided to walk around and grab some dinner. I took my mom to my favorite Italian restaurant, Arturos, which Is on Houston street and indulged in some very tasty salad, pasta and of course bread. After that we walked of our dinner and I showed my mom Washington Square Park, Union Square and parts of the East Village. We ended at a cute little Irish Pub on 2nd Ave called Dempseys where we toasted to adventuring in NYC.
We’re off to explore some more today – here’s some pictures from last night!
Two months until I’m back in the city and I cannot even explain how much I’m missing it. I love to take pictures and more often than not I love to pretend that I’m actually a great photographer. Whilst in New York, I tried to avoid looking like a tourist and carrying around my large Canon 60D, but hey sometimes you just cannot resist the beauty of the Concrete Jungle. Here are some of my favorite pics from both my Canon and my handy dandy iPhone.
