How To New York, With or Without Me

Yes, that's chocolate outlining my boy's mouth. Dylan's Chocolate Fountain chocolate.

It’s just that I’ve been up to my eyeballs in fun.  That’s why I haven’t been here.  Well, let’s be honest – fun and also a little fatigue.  When I have visitors in from out-of-town, I feel really motivated to show off my NYC.  I want them to join my cult of NYC fan-girl love.  But there’s never enough time to get to everything.  And by the end of the day yesterday, day seven of showing off the NYC my boy was all, “I just reeeeeeely.  Neeeeeeeed.  To reeeeeeeelax.”  And after washing all the Brooklyn off of him, we did that, finally.  I fell asleep on the couch next to him within about 30 seconds while he played Super Mario Bros. Every 2 minutes he would whisper in my ear that we’ve got to do this more.  Sit on the couch more.  Agreed.

But the times, they were good.  In the period of a week, we got our tourist on in these places:

  • Rockefeller Center
  • 5th Avenue
  • FAO Schwartz
  • Central Park
  • Dylan’s Candy Bar
  • Thai Food!
  • Coney Island
  • Wonder Wheel
  • Nathan’s Hot Dogs
  • Shopping at H&M
  • Times Square
  • Prospect Park
  • Grimaldi’s Pizzeria
  • Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory
  • New Brooklyn Bridge Park
  • Brooklyn Botanic Gardens
  • Carousel in Prospect Park

The activities they went on and did without me?  Because I was cuckoo tired?


  • Brooklyn Bridge Walk
  • MoMA
  • Staten Island Ferry (to get an eyeful of the Statue of Liberty for free)

And now in the spirit of two birds one stone-ing it, I would just like to submit this list as my official guide to going places when you come visit me.  But I will be giving you an MTA card and a map because Roan and I are newly committed to sitting on the couch.
