new york city trip report – part #2: highlights

I love NY! Every time I visit, I feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface of what this great city has to offer. This time around, I had 6 days to take in the city and here are some highlights from my trip.

#5 – Occupy LEGO Land inside Occupy Wall Street

.

This movement even has its own facebook site…

#4 – Eataly

Eataly is a sprawling 50,000 square foot gourmet food and wine market featuring artisanal Italian products and twelve restaurants from power trio Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich, and Lidia Bastianich. Simply put, this place is amazing!

#3 – Central Park

Central Park is a public park in the center of Manhattan, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux in 1858. It is a calm oasis in the middle of the “city that never sleeps.”

#2 – National September 11 Memorial & Museum

The 9/11 Memorial is a national tribute of remembrance and honor to the 2,983 poeple killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993.

#1 – High Line

High Line is an urban park built on an elevated freight line that runs parallel to the Hudson River through the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea, and Hell’s Kitchen. The concrete pathway is beautifully landscaped with native plants and trees springing up along the tracks. High Line is my happy place – nature among the urban skyline, with coffee!

  2. I make a trip out to Manhattan every couple of months for my own sanity. I just love it there. Walking the streets makes me so happy…you never know what you will find! I can’t believe I’ve never been to Eataly…definitely going there next time!

  3. Okay, so now you’ve just added 5 new places to the 100 that I HAVE TO SEE when I visit New York for the first time — thanks for nothing!

    Haha, just kidding. Your photos are beautiful and I sit in front of my computer gaping like a fish at the thought of a 50,000 food and wine market. Um, why don’t I live in New York already?

    MY WHOLE LIFE HAS BEEN EMPTY UP TO THIS POINT.
