My dad has been going to New York on business ever since I was in elementary school, and after finally finishing school I had some time to tag along with him on one of his trips. From September 9-12, 2015, my mom and I joined my dad in New York so that I could explore the city. While I didn't make the time to see many of the "traditional" sights of NY (like the Statue of Liberty or Central Park), I got do my favorite things: window shop unique design stores, look at inspiring art, and eat delicious food. My parents were troopers; I can spend endless hours in art museums, galleries, and boutiques.
It was a short trip, but ended up being just about the perfect amount of time; I don't think I could have handled the anxious energy much longer. While it was a lot of fun and I loved going (and would LOVE to go back one day), I know without a doubt I don't want to live there.
Here are some highlights from the trip. Enjoy!
