How many times have I said – out loud that is- “I miss New York?”… Plenty I guess. This is the truth though…! So in fear that i will become predictable but also me having to keep my promise of always, ALWAYS, being truthful to you guys, I decided to share a few thoughts from this past weekend.
It all started because I was looking for a photo that @mymamus had on his phone. And then I just started looking at some of our old photos… I used to have them as well on my old phone – before it back flipped into the toilet bowl…
So there it was at 2am on a Sunday a trip down memory lane… Not ideal timing but is it ever?
View from a night stroll on Brooklyn bridge.
My favourite sushi place on earth! See the roll on the right, is called crazy monkey roll – PERFECTION!!
Summer stroll in Fort Tryon park 🙂 A hidden gem in Manhattan – to my opinion waaaay prettier than Central park
Stroll on the boardwalk at Coney Island… Don’t forget the hot dog of course!
Ready for grocery shopping 🙂 We used to hit the all the mexican/spanish markets in our neighbourhood! Produce from the streets vendors was always the best!
Date night 🙂 At the amazing Japanese dessert place! Don’t forget to try the sticky rice tiramisu ball! BLISS!!!
The view from our apartment window (fire escape) up at 168th street…
Another one from our picnic at Fort Tryon! I am telling you this place is like an oasis in Manhattan…
And of course I couldn’t forget the awesome High Line park, which is old train tracks over the streets of New York that have been converted to an amazing park! This is my and my dear friend Neela – who I miss terribly – enjoying an afternoon stroll there!
As for entertainment goes, well as many of you know I am not a huge party animal but there is nothing better than spending an evening with friends 🙂 There is one thing that I absolutely loved about our old neighbourhood in Harlem in the summer. Stoop season! No no i am not kidding! I had some of the best nights of my life just like that –>
These are our two very good friends Karla and Ellery! Which I miss so very much!! Hopefully I’ll see you at some point soon guys!
Oh the picture that i was actually looking for????
Yes i am holding the ingredients to the weirdest (and probably most unhealthy) dinner EVER! Pringles, jerky straw and chocolate milk… Well to my defense this was our last night in New York, everything was packed into this —>
and there was no food in the house left… So we just hit the 7/11 at about midnight since none of us could sleep from all the excitement (and being sad…).
Well trust me when I tell you i didn’t really plan on writing this post but I really felt like it… I hope you guys enjoyed this little trip down memory lane along with me and also for all my friends who are in NY or planning on visiting soon, don’t miss out on those few places!!!
