New York..Sunday...

I WaNT to be apart of it NeW YoRk..NeW YoRk!!
We arrived downtown at 8 a.m. to a SpecTacuLar city (now this picture isn't the prettiest of the bunch, but this store is EveRywheRe). Duane Reade is a Rite Aid type store. We went there everyday... SeVeral times.

DuNkiN DonuTs ALL over as well. This one was in the SuBway StaTion.

We rode the SubWays everyday and man...cannot get used to the SMeLL!! Not only that, it was MuGGy and HoTTer than H. That being said, it is the BeSt way to get around...and quite FuN (we had some awesome experiences thanks to the subway, will write about that later).
I think I was a LiTTle "ReaDy for BeD" when this picture was taken. It was 90 and humid to the point we were literally showered in SwEat..sorry for the visual, but after taking a REd eye flight, walk off the PlaNe to WalKiNg for miles in the heat until midnight...what were we thinking?? Oh, yes NO KiDs!!

This MemoRiam is located at BaTTery Park. So amazing that this was one of the only pieces left from the 9/11 attacks. It was a place where everybody just walked in silence to the EnoRmity of the event. Between FlaGs, PictuRes in churches, and GroUnd ZeRo (so sad they closed it off to rebuild, but also so grateful for the move FoRward), it was truly a HuMbling feeling...

K...RiDing the Wall Street BuLL... BoYs??!!
TimE SquAre...AwEsomE!!
The MooN rising ABoVe the CitY...GooDNite
(for us, not for the rest of the city)
1. Having the StreNgth to Walk for MilEs EVERDAY!
2. Upgrading to a BiGGer suite..had our own sleeping rooms.
3. BreaKfast on the upper DeCk every morning! 44th Floor

We soooo miss new york (Sadie was born in Brooklyn). But by the end we had a love/hate relationship with it. You need to have a lot of money to live there!

It's been a while since I've been back, I'll live through your pictures (and smells) for a while!

the subway smell really is one of a kind?

Oh and DON'T miss the humidity! And sitting by someone stinky on the subway!!!

Welcome back! All I can say is WOW...Dunkin Donuts! I love those! They remind me of my childhood when there used to be one on 5th south, my dad would take me there! They have the best!

Looks like fun!
