Hiii there pretty pudding pops!
Warning. This is going to be a long post. This is because I want to remember everything myself as much as I want to share it with you guys. CUZ GUESS WHAT… I spent last weekend in New York City!
I know what you’re thinking… Wait, where? Well, it’s this big city on the East Coast where approximately 703 million people live, give or take. I know this because I personally brushed shoulders/ran into/was yelled at by 700 million of them. Pretty sure I would have hit that last 3 million in our short 50 hour trip but Makenzie and I were too hungover to use the subway the last day.
Makenzie, one of my oldest and dearest friends, took the train up from her residence in Washington DC to meet me for a weekend of galavanting in New York. I absolutely ALWAYS have fun with Makenzie, so I knew I was guaranteed a good time. This is the same girl who, in high school, announced that she wore her bangs to the sides during the week for a more school vibe but would be wearing her bangs straight across on the weekends to alert others that she is ready to party. She has since abandoned this tactic but our bangs were both going to be metaphorically straight across all weekend.
This was my first trip to New York. My mom and I have planned to go forever but, since I’ve never really had a lull in between school or working, a time to go has never fully presented itself. Knowing that I was to start my new job in March, I leapt at the chance to take a Friday off of my current job (what is he gonna do? FIRE ME?!) (JK plz don’t fire me) to check out the Big Apple and eat everything but apples.
I realized quickly that everyone has a thousand recommendations when it comes to visiting New York. Suggestions and reviews from our friends and family helped build Makenzie’s beautiful minute-by-minute itinerary that provided us with such a good time. So, to outline the way my trip went and to help others, I decided to post my reviews of almost every single place that we went in New York to Yelp. Here I have screenshot them for easier access for my reader(s?) here.
Why not tell the story of our trip AND help others on their first ever trips to New York?! I know, I’m such a good person.
Keep in mind that any time between these places were simply filled with subway rides and miles of walking where I asked my vegetarian friend Makenzie, “Do you wanna get a hot dog? We should probably get a hot dog. Wanna split a hot dog?”
