Taking a bite out of the Big Apple
New York city in March is just magical! This past March I went to New York for three days on a family-girls trip. This trip was jammed packed and full of new adventures and a lot of walking. Over 105,600 steps in three days, which is nothing for a New Yorker.
This was my first time in the city, and I fell in love with the synchronized hustle and bustle. I think NYC in general, has been given a bad reputation, that you have to be extremely cautious, no one is nice yada yada yada. My impression of NYC is that this is the mecca of the melting pot, there is a no nonsense attitude, with history, character and soul and demands to be respected. With that being said we landed Saturday morning running determined to take a big bite of the Big Apple!
This is what we did in a nut shell:
Saturday, March 19th – Saturday 8:30 arrival to NYC, had breakfast, saw Time Square, made our way through the subway system to Radio City Music Hall for the tour, interviewed a Rockett(my family said I was Rachel Cronkite), a little shoe shopping at Nine West, checked into the hotel then got ready for our Broadway Show “Shuffle Along” staring six time Tony award winning actress, Audrey McDonald. Then back to the hotel to crash!
Sunday, March 20th – Breakfast, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, American Museum of Natural History Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET), Central Park for photos, diner at Bourbon Street Bar & Grille, after dinner we jumped into two taxis and went to the top of the Empire State Building and then it snowed! This Florida Girl Was Very Happy!
Monday, March 21st – Exhausted missed breakfast, but of course had time to go shopping at Macy’s (Union Square) during their “America The Beautiful” flower show, which was amazing! (I wish I took more photos). My family went off to do more shopping and I hung out in Time Square, took some photos with NYPD and of course Ben Higgins from “The Bachelor”, lunch then off to the airport to go home.
I told you it was a whirlwind! But we took a huge bite of the the Big Apple and I look forward to coming back again! BIG THANK YOU to my cousin SL for putting together a great trip.
