Long Weekend in NYC

A few months ago Reid and I were trying to plan out our Summer traveling and he mentioned he had a conference in New York at the end of May. I quickly took advantage of it falling the week before Memorial Day and booked a flight to meet him there. We went together several times in college. Philadelphia is just about two hours away from New York. Our trips were always short, but we loved exploring that City together. We have been wanting to go back to visit as "real adults" and were thrilled it worked out!

We met at LGA Wednesday night. Reid had meetings all day on Thursday so I set out to explore on my own. It was wonderful! A day with nothing to do... but whatever I wanted to... in an amazing city. Ahhh! Thursday night we ate dinner in Grand Central Terminal at Metrazur. It was really good and the atmosphere was great! On Friday I was so excited to meet up with an old friend, Lindsay. My time with her was so refreshing! We ate lunch at a cute place on the Upper West Side and strolled through Central Park on the way back to my hotel. Friday night Reid and I met up with some of his friends from college and hung out in TriBeCa. Saturday we spent the day roaming around different neighborhoods. We shopped a little, taste tested a few desserts at Magnolia Bakery, and ate some great Thai food for dinner. Sunday morning we headed to the airport after brunch in the West Village. It was a wonderful trip and we can't wait to go back!
