NYC in 2 Seasons Part 1

I’ve officially visited NYC in all four seasons. I know, where’s my badge?! In 2016 I experienced The City in both it’s glorious extremes: July and December.

In July, Greg and I decided we hadn’t traveled enough this summer (ha!) so we loaded up the car and drove 14 hours north to Brooklyn. Luckily, we always have a place to stay with his brother and sister-in-law – thanks Scott and Meredith!

The first two days we were there it was PERFECT weather. I wore jeans and a tank top and never sweated. Things then took a dramatic turn to HEAT and HUMIDITY.

Despite the weather conspiring against us we go out there and suffered I mean… had fun.

Sites: 9/11 Memorial, Washington Square Park, The Whitney, The Met, Chelsea Market, random art galleries, Prospect Park, Strand Bookstore, DUMBO, Transit Museum, Oculus, random pent house open house (G’s SIL had artwork in it)

Places: Red Hook, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Park Slope, Manhattan, Bed-Stuy, Downtown Brooklyn, Williamsburg, Chinatown

Food: Katz’s Deli, Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain, The Meatball Shop, Dough Donuts, Morgenstern’s Ice Cream, El Rey, Grumpy’s, Chinatown Ice Cream Factory, Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory

Those are the exact places I could remember the names. We ate a super authentic ramen place in Chinatown that was a real experience. We went to a whiskey tasting and a chocolate tasting in Red Hook. And in between everything we had a lot of coffee, pizza, and bagels.

Now the pictures:

And if you made it all the way to here, bless you! You get a badge too! Stay tuned for part 2…
