Celebrating Love in NYC

This spring, my boyfriend and I spent 5 days in New York city to celebrate our anniversary. We saw amazing shows, caught up with close friends, did some yoga, and of course walked a lot. Here are a few photos I snapped along the way.

We made it! Time Square.

Late afternoon cider in Central Park.

Heading in for a taping of the Letterman Show.

This was on Darren’s bucket list. On Sunday morning at brunch he told me that the last time he was in New York someone had offered him tickets to a taping if he could answer a trivia question. He waved them off (because you get solicited so much for various shows in New York that you start waving a lot of things off), but then realized that he should have said yes. Anyways, about two hours after our brunch on Sunday morning, (and many years after that first incident), someone stopped us as we walked along Broadway, and asked if we wanted free tickets to a Letterman taping the following day. Darren didn't say no this time.

Posing in front of Lululemon.

Look what I found! We happened across the store on our way to dinner one night and I had to take a picture. Reverse warrior was all I could safely handle in my heels. Let’s be honest, I can barely walk in them. Anything crazier than this wearing tight jeans and boots, was out of the question.

Inside Grand Central Station

Some of the old rail tracks along The High Line that are now overgrown with beautiful gardens.

The High Line is a public park built on a historic elevated freight rail line, overlooking Manhattan’s West Side. It is a mile long and runs from the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street.

More greenery along The High Line.

One of my favourite buildings along our walk.

Art is everywhere.

This is one of the reasons I love New York City. There is no shortage of beautiful art happening. The High Line is an incredible example of creative architecture in and of itself, but all along it there are art installations, more beautiful buildings, great views of the city, and murals like this one.

Loving everything about this day.

Grand Central and the Chrysler Building by night.

New York you are big, bright and shiny; and I sincerely enjoyed my stay. I will be back to see more shows, do more yoga and walk your beautiful parks again soon.
