Dear New York City, I’ve got my sights locked on you.
I’m back – again! It feels like it’s been far too long, even though I was *technically* here last month. Guess that’s a good sign, it just feels so natural to be back!
My morning started with a 4:20 am wake up call and an early 6 am flight out of Grand Rapids to LGA. I landed a little after 8 am and took the bus/subway into the city.
By the time I made it down to 23rd street, near She’s the First HQ, I needed to stop for an early “lunch” at Starbucks while I answered a few emails and enjoyed a vanilla steamer.
Check it out — have you ever been to a TV show taping? They are quite the production!
We left the show with copies of Rachael’s magazine – I never turn down a free magazine! 🙂
After the show my friend and wonderful hostess, Opal, took me to Pinkberry for a little “pre-dinner” dessert. I loved the new greek yogurt that Pinkberry serves – it’s fabulous!
After Pinkberry, we decided we were still hungry and ventured for an early dinner at a Thai place a few doors down. The food was excellent! I ordered spicy noodles and vegetables – so much flavor and definitely lit my taste buds on fire!
After dinner, we made our way down to the Financial District area to drop my stuff at Opal’s dorm at Pace University. Such a pretty group of buildings right next to the Brooklyn Bridge and the new Freedom Tower. You should see her view, it’s to-die-for!
After re-charging my phone for a few minutes, I decided to go on an after-dinner walk on the Brooklyn Bridge and through Opal’s neighborhood. I just can’t get enough of street-roaming in New York. I could literally spend days on end just wandering and watching.
This city is just so full of life.
I took a break in the middle of the bridge and found these hidden treasures 🙂
Until tomorrow! (I’ve got exciting plans…. stay tuned!)
