here we are. new york city!
black coats unite!
central park just gives us feelings
after my run i obviously went to levain bakery for their amazing cookies.
we walked across the brooklyn bridge and ate at grimaldi’s.
we were the only people without a selfie stick.
my outfit inspiration for this trip was like jonathan taylor thomas a la tool time. i can’t be held accountable for this.
pizza like whoa! i don’t know what was more memorable, though… the pizza or the conversation going on behind us. ask me about it sometime.
new york city library! when can i move in?
i was set on seeing matilda, and thankfully my parents obliged.
i did not, however, think about the type of crowd a show like matilda would draw… this photo perfectly encapsulates the experience, aka my 49 year old father plus every single 10 year old on the upper west side accompanied by their mom. rejoice! dad points for being a good sport.
one day i dragged my parents way north for a bagel at absolute bagel. these are the best bagels. they’re life changing. i would go back to new york just for one of these everything bagels with a sundried tomato shmear.
speaking of food… we ate a lot of things. like these pickles from the pickle guys. bread and butter for the win!!
china town sesame pancakes and miso soup. good grief this is the cheapest most delicious meal i tell you what! my stupid grin says ALL.
oh heyyyy m + d!
lady liberty and lady-hasn’t-washed-her-hair-in-a-week.
one world building. just look at it!
these two fine folks riding the subway like true new yorkers. moments like this make me proud! i wonder if they felt the same way about teaching me to ride a bike as i did teaching them to use public transportation. my heart is beaming.
the flat iron. this is the best building in new york.
wafels and dinges! just another manifestation of my life goal to just travel by walking and eating everything i see in the process. mother mary and joseph. these things are good.
i thought we might run out of things to talk about after a whole week together, but when things got a little slow moving, it was comforting to know that we could always just revisit the conversation of whether these water towers are ACTUALLY utilitarian or not. no conclusions were drawn.
hello i will take one of everything, THANKS! also, i spy with my little eye my dad having the time of his life down in the mid left side. what a guy.
what a good trip. thanks for gracing me with your presence mom and dad!
