New York Stories and Tips

NYC: October 2011

New York City & Central Park from Top of the Rock Photo, New York, New York

I returned from New York City on a Sunday afternoon. It was beautiful and a little on the warm side for this time of year which was nice. The only downside was that the leaves had barely started changing so you could hardly tell it was fall, but I can’t complain.

Quick overview of everything I saw/did:

Top of the Rock Observation Deck - such a gorgeous view of the city, especially Central park (better than the Empire State Building in my opinion… and less crowded!)

Explored the Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Egyptian Art & European Paintings are my favorite galleries.

Walked through Central Park in search of Belvedere Castle which is more of a lookout point than an actual castle :D

Saw the Spider-Man musical on Broadway

World Trade Center Memorial - must reserve tickets ahead of time (very beautiful)

Saw a Kathy Griffin stand-up show

Little Italy

American Museum of Natural History

Saw Avenue Q - such a hilarious musical, I’d definitely it!
