Last month I went to visit one of my girlfriends in NYC. I hadn’t been since I was just out of high school, and it had always been in the middle of the winter, so I was thrilled to finally be warm. I showed y’all the 9/11 memorial, but we also hit up some great other attractions.
We did the whole walking through Washington Square Park after a brunch at Buvette (seriously, go. You’ll die). After that, we met up with some of her friends and walked to Brooklyn, where we got caught in one of the most intense rainstorms of all time. #worthit
We went to Kara Walker’s “A Subtlety” exhibit at the old factory. It’s being torn down (this month, I think), & she, got permission to create an homage to the sugar cane workers inside of it. Everything was made out of sugar and/or molasses.
Also, the Highline was insane. I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to see trees and greenery in my life! It’s a walking garden that was built on the old elevated train tracks that run through Chelsea. It’s massive & has benches, lawns, vendors, & water features, & it’s all located right next to the Hudson River. Love, love, love.
