One of my goals before I turned 30 was to take my husband to New York City to see where I lived and worked my senior year of college. We did that earlier this year and subsequently checked off another item on my “30 before 30” list.
We both love the Big Apple.
Between me living there and he visiting so often, I’m almost positive we’ve spent the same amount of our lives in this electrifying city. We can’t get enough of it!
One day we’ll move there, I just know it.
We visited Brooklyn, where I lived. We braved the walk down to the freezing cold Promenade to see the skyline of southern Manhattan. I spent many days down here reading, calling family members, and even building snowmen went it snowed.
I was filled with such feelings of nostalgia seeing Clark St. again.
We also took in some entertainment in NYC. We saw Cabaret with Alan Cumming and Emma Stone (fabulous), we saw Blue Man Group (phenomenal) and even saw the Rangers take down the Stars in a game of hockey.
Of course, we had to visit the newly built 9/11 Memorial. We spent about an entire day in the exhibit filled with sadness, respect, and pride for our country. I highly recommend you visit if you get the chance. It will absolutely change you.
And, as the nerds that we are, we hunted down some iconic locations from Seinfeld and Flight of the Conchords.
I’m so thankful we had a chance to visit a city that we both adore, yet had never experienced together. It was fun sharing my underground perspective of living there and his above ground perspective.
