In Which We Visit the "Concrete Jungle"

Touring Song of the Day: “Empire State of Mind,” by Jay-Z featuring Alicia Keys

Yep, you read that right. We were in New York City this weekend, beeyatches! We took a one day trip with our mom, and my older sis, Trisha, in celebration of Mother’s Day/ Pam’s birthday. To sum up the important deets: hot dog stand–check, NY slice of pizza–check, Central Park–check, Times Square–check, Fashion show featuring underwear clad male models–check!

And there was soooo much more that we packed into a 10 hour day of walking. Instead of boring you with an hour by hour itinerary, we thought we’d share a few pics. Enjoy!!!

The NY Skyline

Saks Fifth Avenue- AHHHH!

Publishing Company!

Ground Zero

St. Patrick’ s Cathedral

Horse and buggy in Central Park

The famous library from Ghostbusters!

Times Square 🙂

Home of The Big Piano from the movie Big!

The fam at the LEGO store.

And there are so many more pics that we took!!! It was an exhausting, yet, exhilarating experience. Have you been to NYC? If so, what’d you do/see there? If not, do ya wanna visit one day??

  1. Oh, I love New York! I'm glad y'all had a great time! Where did y'all stay?Bear and I spent 2 days in NYC in 09 – we didn't get to do much touristy stuff, but we rode the subway, walked around Chinatown, Canal St., Tribeca, stuff in that area. We visited the 9/11 museum on (I think) Liberty St. and took a tour of the area surrounding Ground Zero with a guide who'd lost 4 friends in the Towers. 😦 It was extremely emotional. We also saw The Lion King on Broadway (AMAZING!!!!!!) and saw a Rays @ Yankees game, which was so cool since it was the inaugural season of New Yankee Stadium.BUT – no Statue of Liberty, no Garment district, no Seredipity's, no MoMA – yeah, we totally need to take another trip to NYC!

  2. I loves the NYC! 🙂 I went there for the summers when I was a kid. Much more cleaner and less dangerous now though! LOL.Last time I went was in 2006 in June and it was da BOMB! I needs to go back!You HAVE to go to the Hersey store in Times Square and American Girl too! 🙂

  3. @ Jamie- there was a lady with a HUGE head in my way everytime I tried to take a pic of the models– needless to say me and Pam were pissed! It was for Jockey underwear…those guys, YUM!

  4. Looks like so much fun! When I was little my parents would take me to FAO Schwartz and it was like Christmas. I'm pretty sure we cried when we had to leave. Since I live further away now, I like to catch a show when I'm there. And shop, of course.
