New York! New York!

A few pictures of our trip to New York! Other than spending a quick day in the city 11 years ago, this was my first time to NYC! Rowan and I had the best weekend ever!

Fabulous fabulous fabulous fabulous fabulous fabulous! I'm not sure if I could pick a favorite, maybe a few. I loved them all! We are such broadway junkies....makes me miss London's West End.

Serendipity frozen hot chocolate....deeeelish!!!

The Met. Amazing.

School Products. Wow!! Definately more details to come. My favorite!!!

Beautiful Central Park.

The Starry Night. At the MoMA. Loved. I must say, I'm not typically a "take pictures of art in museums" kind of girl, but I just wanted to have a picture of this one. One of my favorites. Could have looked at it for quite awhile (you know, me and the gazillion other people staring at it).

A few more highlights (Rowan has a big surprise for everyone! You will all be proud of her!) to come later after I recover from this sleep deprivation/jet lag. Working late two nights in a row doesn't help. Back to reality.

I will say going from New Orleans to New York City was quite an experience, if not almost an adjustment of sorts. The laid back style of New Orleans to the crowded streets of Manhattan. Its been a fabulous week or two. I'm glad you all enjoyed the pictures from New Orleans (seriously, love my job sometimes!)...its one of my favorite cities. I'm adding New York City to the list.

Happy Knitting!!

ooh, Manhattan, home of my heart. It is warmed by all your photos. Love the photo of the park. And the Starry Night - you know that's my favourite picture ever?!
Gotta go to School Products next time I'm there. I'm excited to see your 'further details'.

You're so lucky Starry Night was visiting! I was disappointed when I was at the Orsay a few years ago and it was on loan to Boston.

Sounds like an awesome trip. I bet seeing Starry Night in person was great.

Hope the rest of your trip is just as wonderful.
