This past month Marc and I went to NY to see both his nephew and see his best friends for about a week and some days. I’ve only been to the city once before and we didn’t get to see much which was a bummer so we made an effort to take a day and see the little things that I wanted to experience.
We flew in about 9-10AM into John F. Kennedy Airport and took and got an Uber to his sisters office in the city to drop our bags off; and off we went. I knew that I wanted to see Central Park and also wanted to fully walk around and take in the city. Which, bless Marc because he willingly walked 45 minutes from his sisters office to Central Park with me lol ( in the heat). On the way I got to see St. Patrick’s Cathedral and honestly pictures really don’t do it any justice and the architecture is so incredible. You can go inside for free but Marc and I didn’t stay long since it was packed.
On the way over to Central Park, I took a few photos along the way:
This one has to be my favorite since I have a few of these from when I went to Europe and C’mon it’s the Cartier building (brb, drooling).
I’ve noticed that I really enjoy taking photos with people in them, and love this one that I snapped when we finally reached Central Park.
We walked quite a bit to reach Bethesda Fountain and it was definitely worth it. I’ve only ever seen this part of the park in movies so it was pretty cool for me to see it in person. I also loved that you can canoe The Lake that is in Central Park, originally I wanted to try the Loeb Boathouse Restaurant but unfortunately it was booked out for the next two months. So if you want to try out this very popular restaurant when you go to the city I would suggest booking a reservation a month or two before you go!
The fountain area was so pretty and Marc snapped some photos of us and I absolutely love them!
Once we made our way from the fountain, we started walking aimlessly looking for the Belvedere Castle which sadly we couldn’t figure out where it was haha but we did stumble upon Cedar Hill which is a prime picnic spot in the park and makes for some awesome photos.
Another thing we ended up doing was going up Rockefeller Center at Top of the Rock which Marc had never done before and it was definitely a experience for us, being on top of the world and seeing the city from above was incredible. Another plus, about this spot:
You can purchase a time slot on your phone and walk around and head over to the building to avoid the line. it was so quick and easy to go up. Heads up, it is pricey I believe Marc and I spent 71$ on the both of us.
Walking around, we got to see little things of the city and most importantly: It’s FREE! we only spent money on coffee, food and doing Top of the Rock and souvenirs at Rockefeller Center.
