Over the summer my sister and I went to New York City. We go every year.
As usual we had a list of things we wanted to do.
Some were achieved, and one was not!
The list was short this year.
We wanted to…
- Go to Dylan’s Candy Bar (of course)
- Go to the top of a building
- Get a cupcake from the Sprinkle’s ATM
- Go to Minus 5 Bar
- Go to Central Park
We went to Dylan’s because I have three kids and all hell would break loose if I came home and didn’t have candy for them. Not to mention that I love that store.
We were trying to decide between the Freedom Tower and Top of the Rock. We ended up going to Top of the Rock because it’s closer to Dylan’s and Central Park and deep down, we’re kind of lazy. The only problem was that it was SO humid that we couldn’t see as far as we would have liked.
We went to the Minus 5 Bar, in sandals and dresses. We had been at an event and there were quite a bit of drinks already consumed before we even got here, I won’t mention what number beverages those two were of the day. One of us spilled her drink as she was picking it up, the bartender was a great guy, good thing it wasn’t crowded. That place is so cool, I wish I could have brought in my camera.
We went INTO Central Park, after we were accosted by several vendors trying to get us to ride in their bike thingy. Every single one we walked past jumped in front of us to ask if we wanted a ride, not if it’s $200. Since is was so hot, we did a quick loop and were done. We saw a childhood friend while we were there, we didn’t say Hi.
Now we get to the Sprinkle’s Cupcake ATM saga. I’ve been trying to get one out of that machine for over 3 years. How do you think it went this time?
We also got to do a some other things.
We saw the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island while on a boat tour.
We went on The Ride. It’s very entertaining, the best part is watching the people around the performers. They look around trying to figure out what’s going on, it’s great.
We made a homeless lady cry hysterically when we gave her our dinner.
I finally found the LOVE sculpture.
We got to see pigeons flying around Penn Station, I didn’t even know they stayed up that late, but it is New York City.
We had a great few days, despite the ridiculous heat.
Until next time…
