Siteseeing in the City

I had a whirlwind weekend, surprising my sister in Charleston for her bridal shower, and then spending yesterday back in NY with some friends visiting from China. Charleston was the perfect weekend retreat from the cold weather - I was basking in the 50s! It was great getting to spend a weekend with my sister and meeting a lot of her friends that I've only heard of by name. 

Once I was back in NYC, I had a tourist filled day, checking out the Statue of Liberty, walking through Central Park, and roaming around the American Museum of Natural History. Here a few pictures from my walk around the city.

Some of my favorite places to see around the city are:

  • Views from Top of the Rock
  • Central Park Conservatory Garden
  • Chelsea Market (so much good food!)
  • Taking the tram to Roosevelt Island and seeing the creepy house at the south end of the island
What are your favorite NYC attractions? Tell me in the comments section!


  1. Favourite NYC places? Hmmm . . . Central Park. Greenwich Village. Angelica Kitchen. The Strand Book Store. St. Mark's Place. MoMA. The Guggenheim. The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

  2. Nice photos by the way! Where did you see the creature? How big is it and what is it made of? Looks like balsa wood or toothpicks, but I can't tell for sure . . .

  3. Thanks for letting me know all of your favorite NYC places. Hopefully you can come up to visit and we can visit a bunch of them together :)

    The creature is a little dinosaur, so he's made out of bones!
