Empire State of Mind

So why do I keep singing this song....

Because my best friend surprised me with a 5 day trip with no kids to NEW YORK CITY. Adam has some Gowalla stuff to do and decided to throw me in a carry on bag. :D We haven't had a night away with just us since our honeymoon (over 8 years ago.) And I haven't been away from my babies (besides hospital overnights) EVER! So needless to say this trip is very LONG overdue.

I'm SO VERY excited! We've never been to NYC and it sounds like a perfect trip to just be us. Especially because I won't be thinking "oh I wish the kids were here for this". We will be doing all adult things all week(you should see the hotel we are staying; it's VERY CLASSY and very :gulp" New York) and having an ABSOLUTE BLAST.

Have you ever been? What are the "must sees"?

And what am I going to wear??? (HELP ME)

We went a couple years will LOVE it. We saw a yankees game just for fun and loved riding the subway lol. Some suggestions:

1. You MUST go to times square. Just walk around take in all the people and at night the lights. We had dinner down there and looked in all the shops.

2. Take a ride or walk through Central Park. It's beautiful!

3. See Ground Zero. We stayed at the Millenium Hilton which is right next to ground zero from our room on the almost top floor we could see ground zero perfectly. It's mixed emotions seeing it. But something I would suggest seeing.

4. See Wall St - We took pictures of the stock exchange and Trump's Building.

5. Take a ferry out to the Statue of Liberty and walk around for a bit.

I will post if I think of more things that we did.

Get some good walking shoes - you'll walk everywhere:) And take the subway! Just ask people and get a map, too. We were there a whole week and did almost everything! Times Square, PIzza, Little Italy, SoHo, a Comedy CLub where all the SNL peeps started (can't remember the name??), Grey Dog Coffee, PIck a Bagel, take a bike tour of Central Park, Trump tower, Empire State Building, Today's Show, St. Patrick's Cathedral, BROADWAY SHOW!, shopping!!!...even with the guy who has a brief case and wants you to go around the corner with him:), Grand Central Station, Dean and Deluca...I can go on and on. I LOVE it there. I always tell Tyler NYC was my good friend I made and had to leave her and miss her everyday:)
