Hai Brooklyn Bridge
Remember when you were little and read all the E.B.White books and watched the sailboat race in Stuart Little and decided that you wanted to go to Central Park and visit New York for yourself?
The New York I met this winter was crowded, incredibly hot (I’m talking about 20 Celsius in December here) and a few shades grittier than I imagined. But the moment you find yourself in a city you’ve had on your travel list for so long is the moment you believe you can do anything you put your mind to. It’s a girl boss moment.
I love waking up in a new city to the twitchy feeling in your stomach because you know there are so many new things to try and places to explore.
Here are a few favourite photos from this trip.
The Egyptian exhibition was beyond cool and I stood here and took like 10,000 photos.
Eats with the lovely Nana. Yes, the food is as good as it looks and Whyte Hotel is probably my favourite non-minimal hotel ever.
Not going to lie, I can live off coffee and milk bar ice cream.
Cooler than the one in Seattle. Unrealistic wardrobe goals check.
Came here for marbled tables and photogenic matches lattes.
Thanks to Justin for showing me around. Too bad we came on a cloudy day and missed the window light. The sculpture with the creepy dead cat is worth checking out though.
That’s all for now. And for what I haven’t photographed here’s to more future trips.
Till next time New York City, you were a dream.
