This time last week I was finishing day one in New York City.
It was so nice to be back in NYC. We landed on a red eye at 5am and as soon as we got to the hotel I showered and went to sleep. My Mom, Dad, and I then woke up and headed out for lunch at Serendipity.
As is custom, we split a frozen hot chocolate. Amazing.
Then we went to Bloomingdale’s across the street.
We rode in a carriage around Central Park, one of my favorite places ever. It is so beautiful and I was able to see things I had never seen before, including the skating rink and a carousel.
We took a red bus tour to see more of the city. I took a ton of pictures on my iPhone.
We ended the evening with dinner at my favorite Italian restaurant, Il Corso (on 55th between 5th and 6th).
I love it there. They moved locations across the street because they needed a bigger facility, which is great because it means they are doing well and every time I visit I wonder if they’ve closed.
It was a packed first day and definitely set the tone for the rest of our trip.
