I wish I had taken more photographs of the streets of New York but it was so hard to capture the busy nature of this city in single photographs - you just have to experience it. New York was amazing; this city is every bit as eclectic as you imagine it to be.

We stayed in the East Village of Manhattan right by Tompkins Square Park; we ate (too many) bagels from Tompkins Bagels; visited the Bronx Zoo; explored the American Museum of Natural History for hours; drank coffee at Stumptown (amazing coffee, amazing building) and Blue Bottle Coffee (which I loathed for its pretentiousness); ate the most delicious pizza at Paulie Gee's; finally saw the enlightening Body Worlds exhibition; found the hidden burger joint in Le Parker Meridien; experienced Sleep No More's "Inferno" at the McKittrick Hotel, which was indescribably mind blowing; ate at Momofuku; viewed artwork at MoMA including the Henri Matisse exhibition; narrowly avoided being crushed at the Village Halloween Parade; grabbed lunch at Amy's Bread; spent some dollars in Sephora; visited the Evolution Store; experienced proper Cuban-Mexican food at Cafe Habana; explored the city and its streets from The High Line and drank at some pretty awesome bars.

I would go back in a heartbeat.

  1. I think your honesty about not being able to picture and do it justice is so true. It's a place simply to experience. Your round up of activities and places sounds very fun!!

  2. These photos are making me miss NYC so much! It's a city like nothing else, you're totally right that it's hard to capture it in a picture (although yours are gorgeous). Love the High Line, such a great space!

  8. You've managed to capture the feel of the city so well! If you ever go back again you should take a walk around Williamsburg, you'd love the architecture around there and the neighbourhood is so interesting Xx

  21. It's hard to capture, you need to see it as a whole rather than in snapshots!

  29. I couldn't bare the cold! I'm useless when it's too hot or too cold; I don't think I could bare NYC in winter, I've heard it's dreadful.

  41. Lovely photos, Sophie! I love that you managed to condense the trip into a single paragraph - that kind of minimalist style is why I adore reading your blog! I love your selection of photos, too - especially that East Asian-inspired street art and the amalgam of stamps. x

  42. I had so much fun reading this! I live in NYC, and your words capture the feeling of this city really well - it is an extremely eclectic city in the best way.


    I used to work across the street from Le Parker Meridien, and I spent far too many lunch breaks (and dollars) at that burger place! I hope you get to come back. x

  44. A week! We're pretty good at cramming a whole bunch of stuff into our holidays :))

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ahhh, awesome :)) I couldn't eat in the burger joint but it was awesome to see it.. I'm curious, was it there before the hotel? Or is it all a con and really part of the hotel? I think it's a sneaky con to make it more appealing ;))
