Top of the Rock at sunset was cliche, crowded, beautiful and just perfect. Yes, the price of admission could buy you about 5 platters of chicken & rice, but please just do it. To get the full magic of being up there, come about an hour before sunset and stay for two. Alternate back and forth between the Central Park and Empire State Building views, trying in vain to determine which side is better. Take lots of pictures and laugh at how terrible flash makes you look.
It isn't a trip to Soho without a stop at the flagship Dean & Deluca store! This place will definitely bust a budget, but my favorite discovery are the giant cookies (7th picture). Four words. TRIPLE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE. $2.50 for a chocolate cookie the size of your face studded with white, milk, and dark chocolate pieces. YES PLEASE.
Here are some snaps from a fun evening with my friend Jamie, that we now affectionately refer to as 'the disaster date'. Our main plan, to visit Top of the Rock, plus our five back up plans all did not work out. Dejected, we just ended up walking along the Hudson, which wasn't too bad of a consolation prize.
A few pictures from a Potomac River cruise back in July. It was too bright to take good pictures, but I wanted to post these anyway because they remind me of a wonderful weekend catching up with college friends. Now that we're adults scattered around with jobs and other fun responsibilities, it makes the small bits of time we get together very special. Man, I miss them a lot. Time for another trip down to Nova?
