New York, I Love You, XOXO II

thumb_img_2429_1024Remember my NYC post from last year? As I had mentioned back then, I’ve wanted to live in Manhattan in the UES (although after this trip, Greenwich Village is on the top of my list followed by SOHO) for years. Since we won’t be moving there, my hubby promised me a trip once a year! This year just worked out perfectly- our cousin was getting married in Nanuet and then we decided to extend our trip in the city since it was also our 2 year wedding anniversary. We did quite a bit in 2 whole days and walked around of course about 10 miles a day (another reason why I LOVE NYC). Here is a short overview of places we went and what we did (yes, more Gossip Girl locations)!
Where we stayed: Lotte Palace Hotel

    I love visiting Manhattan and NYC remains such a walkable city. I wish more cities embraced that concept. Every time I go to NYC I discover something new.
