I’m finally taking a minute to write about last weekend! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that my husband surprised me with a (early) birthday weekend trip to NYC! This was actually my first trip to New York – crazy I know! But, anytime we thought about going…I wanted to make sure we had a really fun itinerary and we just didn’t get to it last year. This year, we plan on going a few times for a home show and visiting friends. Anyway, here are a few photos and highlights below from our trip!
A few highlights:
– The High Line: since my husband is a Landscape Architect, I think I look at public parks and other outdoor spaces a lot differently than most. I see the paving patterns, the unique benches and the plant selection. It was also really interesting to see a lot of the new residential buildings going up around the High Line and how a well-designed park can very much create a better community.
– Our Hotel: we stayed at 70 Park Ave. (a Kimpton Hotel) and their staff was phenomenal. They gave me free drinks in their hotel bar and everyone told me happy birthday. They really know how to make a girl feel special!
– The Top of the Rock: Since I had never been to NYC, we had to do some of the touristy stuff. This was a 360 view of the city from the top of The Rockefeller Center.
For our next trip, we are definitely looking to stay in another area and explore some interior design shops and markets, etc. If you have any recommendations for restaurants, shops, hotels, etc. please let me know! 🙂
