HI guys! Okay, okay. I know I said I would put New York post up LAST week, but hey. It’s up now, so that’s all that matters!
So yeah! For my birthday I was just dying to go to New York City again because I love it there so much. We weren’t able to stay overnight or anything like we did last year, (see those posts here and here) so we just went for the day. I’m so excited to share my photos with you! I didn’t really take many with my camera and so all of these are from my iPhone and edited with A Color Story. (my favorite editing app!)
From the recent trips I’ve taken into the city, I’ve noticed it can be pretty tedious to have to a) take out your camera from your bag every time you want to take a photo or b) stop right in the middle of the sidewalk to take one. I’m sure there are better ways to utilize my camera around the city but I think I just need to practice!
We left the house a little later than planned but got to the New Haven Train Station by around 8:30-9ish. Oh! Do you guys like my new shoes? Not really new now but I got them for my birthday and I love them! Here is the link to the style they are… I can’t seem to find the same color! I’m sure they’re somewhere on the internet, though.
On the train! It was probably about an hour and a half or two hours to get there.
Grand Central Station! It’s so pretty there. And busy. VERY busy.
Our first stop was the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). I had never been there and it had been on my bucket list for forever! They were CRAZY busy though. It probably would’ve been better to go on another day or earlier, but it was still really cool to see everything. Here are some of my favorite pieces we saw:
From there we took the subway up to Greenwich Village where we spent most of the day.
We were all pretty hungry after that so we went to Joe’s Pizza for lunch! It’s been on my bucket list for a while as well and let me tell you it did NOT disappoint. Probably the best pizza I’ve ever had and I’m not exaggerating! You have to try it. Oh – AND it was in the Spider Man movie so that makes it 100x cooler.
Coincidentally, ANOTHER place on my bucket list was literally right next to Joe’s! I’ve seen Popbar over the Internet and it always looked so delicious.
Yummm! I got pistachio with chocolate and more pistachio nuts on top.
From there we walked around Greenwich Village a bit and found Washington Square Park! I was looking forward to seeing the pretty fountain in the center but sadly it wasn’t running 😦 but that’s okay. I know I’ll be back to see it! The flowers were also just starting to bloom and it was so pretty.
So after that we kinda just walked around and enjoyed The Village! I love it there. All of New York has so much to do but the village is so awesome and there are so many cool places! We stumbled upon a CREPE restaurant. I LOOOVE crepes so much. I’ve taught myself to make them, but you can’t go wrong with getting one off the streets of New York, right?! Mine had Nutella and strawberries and it was so so good.
Then we visited Socketbit which is a little Swedish candy shop that (I keep saying this oh my god!) has been on my bucket list forever! I’m serious about this one. It’s so cute and colorful in there (well, the candy is!) and I loved it so much.
After that we walked around for a while and found a spot to eat dinner. Then we took a cab (My first cab in NYC!! It’s nothing special. I prefer the subway. Haha.) back to Grand Central. It was a super fun day in New York and I can’t wait to visit again. Hope you guys enjoyed these photos – sorry it took so long to get them up!
