New York City

Teal and I recently traveled to New York City. While there, although for just a few days we tried to fit in as many things as possible! We also started a few series that we are excited to continue on future trips! Doors of Manhattan & Dogs of Manhattan. We found some rather peculiar looking doors and some super cute and hilarious dogs! We got up at sunrise to catch the Brooklyn Bridge without people, we booked our spot and fought the crowds at the Top of The Rock for Sunset views. We walked well over 30,000 steps almost every single day. We walked through most of Manhattan. All the way from Chelsey to Central Park, to the Upper East & West Sides. And all the way down to Battery Park. While some things were exactly as I expected, others were very different. Wall Street was nice, but WAY shorter than I thought it would be! The Statue of Liberty was far smaller than I thought it would be too! I did absolutely love walking through the Upper East Side & The Upper West Side. I loved the architecture of the brownstones, they were quite spectacular! We visited the 9/11 memorial and saw the new Freedom Tower up close. The memorial is a beautiful space, and the new building is stunning! Although I found it a bit odd that flight paths haven't been changed and planes fly right over it still. China town was the coolest part of Manhattan, we found the best and most unique trinkets and souvenirs there. Times Square was dirty beyond belief. We saw rats there, which was actually kind of fun and unexpected! I can't wait to visit again to finish up our series of Dogs & Doors of Manhattan & photograph more amazing couples!
