Pizza, yellow cabs, an old new friend, and a new friend.

New York, New York so good they named it twice... 
 
 
 
We've just returned from a fortnight in the U. S. of A.
 
 
 

We love exploring a city to get a real metronome of the city heartbeat, and just like everyone of my friends who adored it, we have developed a city crush on New York.
 
 
 
Whenever we explore a new city, we like to cover all the usual touristy bases; the Empire State building, Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park and Times Square, but we also like getting lost.
 
 
 
Columbia University, Greenwich Village, Coney Island, Brooklyn... 
 
 
The weather was great for the most part, and being Londoners when it wasn't, we just cracked on.
 

Best part of the trip? Meeting for lunch with the ever lovely Julie, my transatlantic Foodie Penpal and her friend Tara (more to follow on our lunch spot). Twitter rulz.
 
 
America doesn't do things by halves - this is a candy store (I understand it's pretty unusual, but still!)
 
  
 
 
It was lush (bar a chest infection and I think I've lost my camera - neither of which are New York's fault).
 
Another 101 in 1001 goal down.

  1. New York is my city crush too, I love it! We explored some of the less usual touristy spots too, Coney Island being one of them. I'm desperate to go back!

    1. I'm quite keen to re-visit it too, it feels like we haven't quite 'done' New York yet. Maybe we will never have completely 'done' New York!

  2. It's funny - I grew up two hours away, so to me, New York is so blah (doesn't have the elegance of Boston, the charm of DC), but most non-Americans love it...

    1. I think I'm largely the same about my hometown...!

  3. Lovely. I can understand your crush. I am thinking about going again every time I see photos or film made in New York. :)

    1. It's thanks to you we were inspired to go, and to make a multi-city holiday. My colleague is now doing the same. Maybe you should start charging commission!

So, what do you think? Comments are blogging mana; short, sweet, long, loquacious, deep and meaningful...
