HELLO EVERYONE. I hope all of you had a great Columbus Day Weekend. In the Northeast we had some great weather. It was in the high 60’s with NO humidity (DA BEST) and since I spent the majority of the time outside, feeling that nice warm sun was such a treat! I went to NYC for the weekend with my family. My brother wanted to see Columbia’s campus since he is highly interested in the Teacher’s College for a Master’s in Anthropology. We tackled a lot of the city and I made some SERIOUS purchases that I will save for another post. But, instead of going on and on about how fabulous the Concrete Jungle was, here are some pics and descriptions! I hope everyone had some time to relax, explore and have fun!
An awesome ‘wave’ like building in Times Square… right outside Bergdorf Goodman. No filter needed for this!
Chamomile grappa…If you are Italian you probably know how potent this is. It definitely puts a little bit of hair on your chest.
One of the cutest little coffee shops in the Flat Iron on Broadway…So great for people watching.
We went to this cafe twice. Here is my espresso. It was divine. The place was called La Pecora Bianca which means white sheep.
Macaroons from Laduree. The best. The Orange Blossom offering is so unique. You get a hint of orange but it is very floral.
My bro and I on the library steps of Columbia. AMAZING.
This is THE C.O. Bigelow down on 6th Ave. The building has been there since the late 1800’s. Not only does it carry C.O. Bigelow but it has so many high-end brands, barrettes and cute makeup bags. A one stop shop for all things beauty…It also has a pharmacy? Who wouldn’t want to pick their birth control up here?
NO words. When we made our way to Ground Zero, it was worth the walk. The footprints of the two towers were beautifully made into memorials with cascading waterfalls.
Thanks for reading!
