I never really longed to go to NYC – that is, up until I had to spend 4 months there for work, in which case now that it’s over, I find myself constantly longing to go back. There’s a never-ending supply of things to do, things to see, and things to eat. I just can’t get enough of it.
After a 2 month hiatus, I finally returned last weekend. Staying with a fellow foodie, not only were the days and nights occupied with om noms, but also gracious accompaniments to the Met and UES /East Village walks. Here’s to discovering there’s so much more than what meets the eye; kudos to reddit bringing folks together.
75 Nineth Avenue, New York, NY
– must-get: Pork and Apricot Sausages

– doesn’t hurt for some homemade mustard

St. Patrick’s Cathedral
14 E 51st St New York, NY
– I technically don’t have any right to say this, but this Cathedral was very touristy with people coming in and out and snapping pictures with flash; took away from the Mass…
