Our weekend getaway to NYC was long over-due; two years ago I was happy to see my college roommate turning into a New Yorker, but overwhelmed by the city as a whole. This time around, D & I started our date with New York on the right foot…then the left.
We kicked off the weekend by arriving at Penn Station (via Tripper Bus, which was smooth & comfortable!), and heading straight to tourist-ville in Times Square. After approximately ten seconds we took the first side street that would lead us to Rockefeller center, to see “30 Rock”, of course.
From there, we realized our feet were walking 5th Avenue which took us right into the Southeast corner of Central Park (before this trip I had absolutely no concept of NYC’s layout). A walk through the park? Well, why not…
We walked from end to end – southeast to northwest corner, 5th Ave & 59th Street to 8th Ave & 110th Street – on a diagonal foot-tour. Neither one of us had ever seen it before, now we’ve seen the whole thing! Mission accomplished.
Now, we also have a much better idea of how the neighborhoods are arranged, how the streets make sense (grids are far superior to circles) and how much you can see by simply staying above ground vs. on the Subway.
In other weekend action, we had real NYC bagels and pizza (priorities!), walked the Chelsea Highline and decided these short n’ easy weekend trips will be happening more often. The city too accessible to ignore, and too energized to forget*.
*Now I get why you can’t wait to be here again, Dorry!
Huge thanks to our host & hostess, we love you guys!
