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.
