Over the weekend I ventured up to the Big Apple! My first ever summer visit. My best friend knows all of these amazing little places to go to in NYC.
It was a perfect summer day...we rented bikes...hit the streets...and just went everywhere! I got to see so many places I've never seen before - including Grand Central Station, Central Park, and all sorts of places below Midtown. I also got a fantastic Italy fix: my first gelato in a few weeks (caramella salata + cioccolato) and a visit to Little Italy.
One place I instantly became obsessed with was Eataly. I could spend hours in there, and I am certain that people do. Just the fact that the signs were in Italian made me insanely happy.
Another amazing aspect of our day: riding bikes throughout the streets. We rented CitiBikes, and while the getting started process was a little bit of a nuisance, the freedom of weaving around taxis was absolutely exhilarating!
It makes me want to bike. everywhere. Spending a day in NYC always makes me think about whether or not I'd like to live in a bustling, big metropolis.
I don't know if I could - but I do love the accessibility of it all. Walking, biking, having places like Eataly around the corner! There are so many little treasures and hidden places to go, it would take years and years to unearth them.
All in all it was a fantastic day...and NYC is undoubtedly a place where you'll find something new each time you go. amaaazing day :)
