Dream Like New York

Pretty subway floor

A couple of weeks ago I went to New York City. I was online one day with a friend and we found round trip tickets for about $200 and I thought that with the economy the way it is and airlines & hotels slashing prices I should take advantage and head to New York haha. I know, not the most logical thinking but I'm spontaneous and I've always wanted to go to New York =). I went for about 5 days with a few friends who I am also going to Nigeria with this summer and we had to most amazing time in the city. We stayed in Queens and went to Manhattan, Brooklyn, and everywhere in between. We ate hot dogs & gyros from street corner stands, shopped at every used bookstore possible, ate authentic Chinese food, got invited to an art gallery opening, saw the MET, drank coffee in central park, played with dinosaur bones at the Natural History Museum, discovered the BEST photography store EVER, and got lost in just about every possible way to do all of the above haha. We also rode the subway EVERYWHERE. I had so much fun doing this. I read, talked, took pictures, ate, read some more, and just people watched. I could have just rode the subway and ate and been a happy camper. Oh, I almost forgot! It snowed the second morning we were there... that was amazing! I loved the hustle and bustle of it all, people walking around on a mission in their couture boots. If it wasn't so stinkin' cold there, I could definitely see myself living there... we'll see, you never know where I'll end up! Here are a few pics of me and my friends on our trip, enjoy!
