i love ny!.....

*warning*
there are ALOT of pictures in this post...
i just got home from an awesome vacation to nyc with my mom, aunt, and sister for my sister's 30th birthday.
we spent and amazing 6 days and 5 nights in the city.
seth was a saint and stayed home with the boys so i could enjoy this time with the girls.
we had a BLAST to say the least.
this is us on our first night eating at our favorite italian restaurant on restaurant row.
our hotel was a couple blocks from time square.

our first day we took a double decker bus tour (i highly recommend it!).
we took it uptown around central park and into harlem.


when we got to harlem we got off the bus and at at slyvia's.
i ate chicken and waffles for the first time.
sooooo goood!!!








later that night we went to see "west side story" on broadway.
it was an amazing show.











the next day we went to the MET.
then we took a bike taxi into central park
to eat at the boat house















after lunch at the boathouse we went to serendipity
to eat some amazing dessert.





















the next day my mom, sister and aunt went to the statue of liberty and ellis island
i have already been been twice so i went off and did a little sight seeing and shopping by myself.
my first stop was wall street.
this is the new york stock exchange.
i was in awe of the beautiful building.



this is the site of the world trade center.
the progress they have made is really incredible.







our friend erin lives in pennsylvania so she took the train into the
city to spend a couple days with us.
it was so fun to have her there with us.



after they got done with the statue of liberty we went to eat at katz deli.
it's the deli where they filmed that famous scene from 'when harrry met sally'

the pastrami sandwich was soo good!
and yes we did do alot of eating while we were in ny :)

after the deli we went to the empire state bldg.
i was so bummed but my camera battery died right before we got there.
i was especially bummed when we watched the beautiful sunset from the top.
oh well!



the next day we went to greenwich village to eat some pizza.
we had heard it was the best pizza in the city.
i thought it was excellent but my sister gave it a 6 out of 10 :)




we did some shopping in SOHO.
after shopping we went to the meatpacking district.
this is us in the chelsea market.
i was a old meatpacking warehouse that was turned into a really cool market with a ton of restaurants, and bakeries.
i heard that they film the food network shows upstairs.




then we went to washington square park.
it is so pretty there.




after a full day of walking we were starving!!
so we went to little italy for dinner.






i had an amazing time in ny!
thanks mom, katie and sissy!!
love you!!
