You guys! My sister came to visit! And as you might expect, we had the most glorious week ever. It wasn’t her first trip to NYC – just her first since I moved here – so we were able to skip some of the touristy stuff, spend the majority of the week in Brooklyn, and just generally have an amazing time.
Here’s a little review – and my first-ever video!
We greeted her, of course, with a proper NYC summer picnic in Prospect Park, and unintentionally ended up looking like a Trader Joe’s ad.
Naturally, we soaked in as many free views of the city as possible. We started out Sunday at the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, and ended up on the 6th floor of Burlington Coat Factory in Union Square. The sky was that blue pretty much all week.
Oh yes, more views. On Wednesday – Ally’s nineteenth birthday – we saw Lion King on Broadway (thanks Mom and Dad!) and then I bought us tickets to the Top of the Rock. I’d been once before, seven years ago, and have been dying to go up again ever since. It was Ally’s first venture up and she loved it so much we stayed two and a half hours to catch this glorious sunset!
Finally, here’s a little video I made of our adventures!
Thanks for visiting, Ally!
