Among other things on this vacation, we were extremely lucky in the whole weather-department as well. The sun was shinning throughout our whole trip and nothing beats some warm weather while having a goodass time. So anyways, we took the subway over to the Lower East Side, to visit a few more shops on my list: Reed Space, The Good Company, and Alife and a few shops on Rachel’s list: Babycakes and Doughnut Plant (holy shit, the piña colada doughnut). After that, we hung out with our homegirl Lace who showed us around here neighborhood in Brooklyn and took us out for some drinks and food (i have no idea why i didn’t take any photos of her [cause she rules]).
Just right outside our hotel, we also checked out High Line park. It was a block or two away from Hotel Gansevoort and we kinda found it by accident on the way to the Comme des Garçons shop, but it was a really cool walk and a tight spot to hangout at for sure. From there, we took the subway down to Battery Park for some more sightseeing/must-do-touristy-crap (but we had to). We saw Lady Liberty, tried to buy a sweet Rolex from a totally credible citizen, and heard some guy talk about 9/11 conspiracies.
Four days is so not enough time to visit this city (and i’m sure this goes for most places), but for this place it is really not enough time. There was so much more on our to-do-lists that we did not even touch. We are already starting to plan our trip back. Hopefully in September. Hopefully when the Giants are in town. Hopefully, we’ll see.
