Travel :: NYC Part I


As I mentioned last week, I spent six wonderful days this past month in NYC.  Ryan was brought to the city for business, and I decided to join him and play the tourist for the week.  My first day was spent on Fifth Avenue -- Christmas shopping, trying my first Lobster Roll, wandering Central Park, and going to the Top of the Rock at twilight.  Afterwards I met Ryan at our hotel in Times Square for a drink then grabbed a cab to TriBeCa for dinner at Locanda Verde {the fried artichokes, oh my goodness!}  I have shared some photos from this part of my journey plus those from my second visit to the ever-amazing MoMA below, enjoy!
