NYC- Take 1

We did a lot of walking around and sight seeing in the first 2 days of being in NYC. The weather is kind of yucky but it looks to be better in the next few days! Here are some photos so far...

After checking in, we walked a few blocks south of our hotel to Times Square! It was really awesome to see at night, especially for Matt since this is his first time to NYC.

There were a lot of people there, but I am sure all of them were tourist like us! :)

On our way back to the hotel, we stopped by Radio City Music. Matt was disapointed we didn't get in town before the NFL draft was over. This is where it was held and you can see a big NFL banner hanging behind him.

I had been up since 5:45 and I was fading fast by this pic! HA! Oh and it's way colder than I thought it would be, so you will see this black zip for the first few days of photos because it is the only thing I brought that is full-long sleeved!

We went in Rockefeller Center and looked around. They were filming SNL and Matt was sad we didn't get to go see it while we were in town!


Sunday, we did some more walking around and decided to walk thru Central Park! It is just gorgeous!!! It's my favorite part of NYC for sure!

This part is called "The Mall" in Central park and they have shot many movies here!

We of course had to have a photo by the dog statue in Central Park that looks like Romeo! :)

We were walking out of Central Park and I hear Matt say " Hey Rich!" I look around and I have no idea who this man is but I soon realize he is on tv just not a show I normally watch! :) This is Rich Eisen who works for the NFL network. He and his wife (she is also a tv reporter) , their baby and dog were walking through Central Park. Rich told us that he used to be a corespondent from Washington D.C. for KHOG in Fayetteville!

On our way back to the hotel, we walked to Columbus Circle which is where Trump Towers are located.

Saturday night, we met up with my friend, Katie and her boyfriend Kevin for dinner! She and I have grown up together and she has lived in NYC for 5 years!

She has the coolest apartment right near Central Park. It's not in a high rise like most apartments are. It was so cute and quaint! I think I could live in NYC in this type of place! :)

They took us on our first Subway experience! I have been on the NYC subway a long time ago and would have been too nervous about getting lost to do this on our own! We went to restaurant in West Village and they are friends with the owner. The owner, Mark, is a judge on the Food Network show Chopped. We didn't get to meet him but we really enjoyed his restaurant!

We are planning to do a bus tour of the city today and we can't wait to see many more of the sights! More NYC pics in a few days... but until then come back tomorrow for a quick hair chat with julee!
