NYC: East Side

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.

    I was two years ago, I visited many things, my mind remained in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, is fascinating.
    Worth seeing and Times Square.

    • the French Coast

      It was actually my first time at the Met; and luckily featuring the Steins collection too.

      Ditto on Times Square; it’s funny I was never compelled to take any pictures of it, but you can spot it miles away and it’s such a sight!
