The Trip

J and I only took 300 photos on our trip, but for your viewing pleasure I have selected my favorite 15. The trip started off right with our amazing view from The Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking District. If we looked far off in the distance The Statue of Liberty was hanging out, to the right was the New York Sanitation Department, to the left the city skyline, and right below us an Italian sausage warehouse/factory. My favorite part of the room was waking up to the clouds floating by the window. Oh, and also the HUGE bathtub.

First official architecture sighting. Trivia fact: It is only 6.5 feet wide at the narrowest section.

The pose is the same, the background is now Union Square. Crazy amounts of tourists and preparation happening for the New Year's Eve ball drop.




This is just to show you the crowds we battled at the Natural History Museum and the AWESOME T-Rex. Oh, and there were a total of 6 bathrooms for all the tourists. I waited in several different lines that day.


Staten Island Ferry:




Our self shot style was not working so well. We were trying to take a picture with the New York Stock Exchange sign. Instead, there are 5 photos of J and I with a gray brick background.

2nd favorite day of our trip (in my opinion) was walking across the Brooklyn Bridge. Thank you TnT for such a great time in your city and for sharing your place with us!


Subway shots! Yes, I was that person.
