East Coast Side Trip

It seems like an odd thing to go from the West Coast to East Coast in one trip (while being one from the Midwest). We just figured since we are on vacation, why not combine them? We wanted to see our friend in San Diego, but New York City was on our Want To Visit list. It wasn’t that crazy since we have travel quite a bit.

Talking to people about our trip, people were concerned about us getting around the city. I had to laugh and comfort them by saying it will be easy. We visited Japan earlier that year, and with the language barrier and the size of Tokyo, NYC didn’t scare me one bit. I never thought that would be possible, but it is the truth. 

Here are some of things we saw in New York City:

We liked eating here so much that we ate at the Peace Cafe twice! Tasty vegan food.
Check out their website.

The 9/11 Memorial was so strange. It was so quiet even though there were drummers
at Occupy Wall Street. When looking at the water, it is like people walking.

30 Rock! My favorite building in NYC.

On top of 30 Rock. Yep, that is the Empire State Building.

A collection of The Legend of Zelda in the Nintendo Store. It is my husband's
favorite video game series. I walked down the aisle at our wedding to
the orchestrated theme song.

Went to the amazing Jim Henson exhibit at the Museum of the Moving Image.

Love, love this park. We ate some scones we bought at the Peace Cafe
and relaxed here before heading to Barnes and Noble.

Caught Terry Pratchett at the Tribeca Barnes and Noble.
