I had an opportunity to take a weekend trip to New York City! It was my first time in the city and it was a whirlwind of fun! I traveled with my mom and some really close family friends. We were only there for three days so to make the most of the trip we walked until our feet were numb! I hope you enjoy some photos from our trip! Maybe you can pick out the Ramsileigh Crochet items we wore throughout the weekend!
When we arrived on Friday it was SNOWING! We thought we were pretty lucky to see NYC in the snow for our first time visiting the city!
We were able to see Rockefeller Center, ride the wooden escalators in Macy’s, see the “big” piano in FAO Schwarz, window shop on Fifth Avenue, and ride the subway for the first time!
On Saturday morning the sun was shining! We walked the streets close to our hotel and took everything in!
On Saturday afternoon we explored SoHo! We ate at a little place called Lasso’s in Little Italy and it was delicious! I highly recommend the tomato basil soup!
The #lovewall was close to the restaurant! I love all the unexpected art you see when walking around New York. After lunch, we explored Chinatown and made our way to the 9-11 Memorial and then the Brooklyn Bridge! Seeing the city lights from the bridge was breathtaking!
On Sunday, we attended a service at the Brooklyn Tabernacle and it was awesome! That was one of my favorite experiences of the trip!
We were able to see Central park and Grand Central Station before catching a flight back home on Sunday night!
I loved our fast trip to New York! It was neat to see places I’ve seen on TV and I felt like a real New Yorker when I saw a rat on the subway tracks! Experiencing the big city is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, but it was nice to come home to my small town in Arkansas!
We stayed warm in our Ramsileigh Crochet! Here are the patterns to make your own!
