Andrew, H, and I recently went to New York for a long-weekend! It was perfect. I know it’s cliché to talk about weather, but I’m going to tell you anyways — because it was amazing. The mornings were chilly (in August) and the afternoons were just warm enough to wear a T-shirt with pants. Everyone we talked to kept telling us that we came on the best weekend, and they were totally right. Although, I’m confident I would have loved our time in NYC even if it had been 200 degrees.
New York, New York. As soon as I see the skyline, my heart skips ten beats. Without a doubt, every single time. If you were following along on Instagram Stories while we were there, you will remember the view we had from our hotel. We had previously decided to stay in Uptown, both near Central Park and then in an Air BnB on the Upper West Side right across from Cafe Lalo (You’ve Got Mail!) Our hotel room view was amazing. Our room couldn’t have been more than 350 sq. feet, but the view made you feel like you were in this gigantic infinity pool with incredible views. We had a birds’ eye view of Central Park (I’ll blog those photos, soon). Floor to ceiling windows – we weren’t staying anywhere exciting, it’s just the nature of the city. The views are amazing.
We ate incredibly well while we were there, and we focused on exploring just one part of New York. It would have been easy to try to do it all, and ultimately miss everything. You’ll notice from my photos that we spent quite a bit of time in Central Park, and instead of snapping away the entire time, I tried to take it all in.
Here are some of my favorite shots — I can’t wait to go back in October to capture this all again (+ more) in the Fall! Cue Autumn in New York by Frank Sinatra.
