When my girl mentioned a couple months back about wanting to visit NJ/ NY for a family get together, it didn’t take much time for me to get on board! It had been years since I had been near the city & ever since then I was fiending to get back. We stayed in NJ for most of the trip which was great as it was my first time meeting most of her family & by sheer luck, our original day trip to NYC ended up being an amazing night after we fell into a room right across from none other then the WTC & ground zero(shouts to her cousins on that!). Being in NYC for me was such an eclectic experience. With so much culture & a plethora of amazing restaurants to sample, 1 1/2 days in the city was certainly not enough for me. This trip made me realize how much I’m aching to live in a place with such a diverse culture & way of life & further reinforced some big plans I’ve got in motion for next year. So without further adiue, step into a NY state of mind:
Give me access to snow & of course this is the result!
Masquerade party with open bar, shazaam!
This was the view from our hotel: overlooking the grounds & monument of the twin towers. During the day the view is breathtaking enough but at night, there are no words to describe it other then: emotional. It was intense!
