NY Trip Part II: New York City
The second part of our trip was so much fun. We stayed with our friends, Shannon and Khuong, in Brooklyn, and Shannon was kind enough to play tour guide while we were there.
It was only two nights, but we’re both talking about what we’d like to do “next time” which is so funny to me because it took me eleven years to get Andy to agree to go to NYC.
These photos are only a small glimpse of what we did while we were there. Most of the time I was having too much fun looking around or stuffing food in my face or catching up with Shannon to be bothered to dig out the camera.
Here’s what I (or Shannon, who took my camera from me Friday night and started clicking) did manage to capture.
I don’t remember which street this is, but the photo was taken from an amphitheater-like place above the street. You can sit on benches and instead of watching an outdoor play you watch the city through a window. Pretty cool.
Walking across. If you go to NYC you should do this.
I don’t remember what this sandwich was called.
We got it from a hole in the wall Vietnamese restaurant & it was delicious.
This is what was on it, minus the jalapeneo peppers because I don’t really like spicy food.
It’s where Harry Met Sally. Or, where Sally faked an orgasm.
Pastrami on rye. So, so good.
View from the Top of the Rock. You can see the “ball” from New Years Eve. It’s pretty underwhelming in person.
Feet firmly planted in the South
Inside St. Patrick’s Cathedral. It was so peaceful. Even with all the tourists walking around.
I could have sat in there for a long time.

It was closed, so we couldn’t go in. A good excuse to go back?
Grand Central Station and the Chrysler Building

This photo is the best description I can give about what it’s like to stand in the main terminal
These light fixtures are as big as a car, and they were everywhere
Bagels and lox on our last morning.
Bleary eyed from a late night and an early morning. Thanks so much, Shannon and Khuong!
