This post is dedicated to all the offbeat things we saw in NYC – your not-so-typical sights, as it were.
All of my friends at Central Park! That’s Stephen, Afton, and Eli, respectively. We had so much fun running around together – we’re hoping to meet up again in Washington, D.C., and Hawaii in the next year or so.
There’s a castle in the middle of Central Park! Maybe this is common knowledge, but my friends and I had no clue, and neither did any of the tourists we ran into. But it’s really cool!
On our second day there, we got caught in a proper thunderstorm and were soaked through! We ended up hiding out in a Starbucks, where a friendly barista gave me a giant trash bag to act as a rain coat.
The graffiti and outdoor artwork was one of my favorite things about the city. Some of it was just ugly lines painted on buildings but a lot of it was simply incredible.
Afton eating some bread and oil at the Italian restaurant. Okay, not completely unexpected, but I really like this photo!
From a street vendor in Little Italy – a whole bunch of pocket watches! My favorite one (not pictured) was a little ladybug whose wings covered the clock face.
A giant cannoli in Little Italy! He gave us a flyer for a cannoli place, but I ended up enjoying some coffee gelato instead.
I have no words. I don’t even know.
Eli masterfully using chopsticks to devour some delicious Chinese food.
And this giant, friendly skull we saw on our way to see “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” on Broadway. (Loved it, by the way! Neil Patrick Harris was amazing!)
