LC Meets NYC

Two of my good friends, Annie and Staci, were in NYC at the same time, so when i had free time, it was wonderful to have them to sightsee with! 

They were kind enough to meet me for lunch breaks, or any free moments i had, so we could spend a little time together! Since my schedule was so packed, they would also do the research and let me know how to get to the showcases and places i needed to go, and exactly how to get there.  Now those are true friends.  I would say that we made our mark on NYC!

Top Moments:

Marchi’s: Staci’s friend, who is a NYC trooper, took us to Marchi’s, an old Italian restaurant in the lower east side that was converted from a house. The food was an incredible-5 courses, and you don’t even order anything.  They just start bringing course after course of what was made fresh that day.  Best salami i have ever had!!!

Times Square: It didn’t matter what time of the day or night, it was packed and full of life, love, and debauchery.  I absolutely loved it. We made it on to a billboard. Not to mention the Forever 21 is open until 2am.  Need i say more?

Chinatown/Little Italy: The day we went it was 60 degrees!! We ate outside-Annie had the most amazing pasta with vodka sauce ever.  We walked, shopped, bargained, and scored some great deals! 

Central Park:  Staci refused to take a carriage ride, but on their last night in NYC, Annie and I somehow convinced her.  So off we went, in probably 25 degree weather.  Our guide was great, even getting out while the horse continued to drag us along so he could take some pics.  He was quite knowledgeable about all things Central Park, and pointed out lots of spots where movies had been filmed.  He seemed to know alot about Home Alone 2, which i had just seen a few weeks before leaving, so i was quite impressed and excited by this. Annie and I enjoyed the scenery, while Staci spent the entire ride asking questions about animal cruelty, where the horse lives, and at what temperature does the horse not have to come out and drag us around like this.   Since we were his last ride of the day, he was kind enough to give us a carriage ride back.  The next day, Staci and i both developed pneumonia-like colds.  But the photos alone were worth it. Right Stac?? 😉
