Hey, guys! So last Wednesday I went to New York City until Friday. (New Years Day) It was so much fun and I am so excited to share my pictures and experience with you all! (by the way – these were all taken with either my iPhone or Nikon) 🙂
This is just part one, so hopefully tomorrow or Tuesday I will put up part two!
We arrived at Grand Central at around 10:30 am. We checked our bags in at the hotel and went out to get lunch! We ended up going to Ray’s Pizza. It was so so yummy!!
After that we headed to the Winter garden theatre to see School of Rock on Broadway! School of Rock is one of my all time favorite movies (it may even be my favorite!), and I was really impressed with the show! I have seen the movie so many times I could point out everything they did and didn’t include in the show! The cast was super talented and I definitely recommend seeing it!
After the show, we went to the hotel. My cousin lives in Brooklyn, so we met up with her for dinner. The restaurant we went to was called Bareburger. It was one of the coolest restaurants I’ve been to! I got the black bean burger. It was SO. GOOD. Seriously. One of the best I’ve had. After that I got a chocolate banana milkshake, which was awesome, too!
After we ate, we went to the Rockefeller Center and 5th Avenue area. It was dark out so it was so pretty! Here’s the tree:
And here are some more pretty things:
And NBC studios!!!!
The next day, Thursday, we went down to Chelsea. I looooooved Chelsea. It was so cool there and there’s so much to do.
For breakfast we went to DOUGHNUT PLANT!!!!!!! It has been on my bucket list for months now! So many of my favorite bloggers have been here and have blogged about it. So surreal to actually be there! Some of the crazy awesome doughnuts on the wall:
And the seats were even cooler!!
Okay, now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for, I’m sure. THE DOUGHNUTS!!!! Here was our ‘haul’:
I tried them all. From top left: gingerbread, blueberry, cinnamon sugar, chocolate mint, creme brûlée, and coffee cake. IF I had to narrow it down to my top two, it would be blueberry and creme brûlée. But they were all so so so do amazing! You need to come here if you’re ever in the city!
After Doughnut Plant, we went to the High Line which is also in Chelsea. It was really cool and the view was beautiful!
And after that… Chelsea Market! I have seen pictures and read a lot about it. It was so so cool and I would love to go back someday. There was too much food to choose from but I ended up getting sushi from Beyond Sushi.
It was soooo delicious. It had avocado and sweet potato! I also got a watermelon mint lemonade which was really tasty.
After that we went to Jacques Torres Chocolate! I got a hot cocoa which was good, but very strong and dark. (and I got a chocolate spoon to go with it!)
So that’s the end of part one! Hope you enjoyed it so far and I can’t wait for you to see part two. There is just so much I decided to make it into two posts!
Have a great week!
