I did the Big Apple in approximately 30 hours.
Straight up PACKED that city in!
It was my first time, and I loved every minute of it! It was sooo crazy with all of the people! Just like the movies! After the 30 hours, I was definitely ready to go back to DC though. DC just seems cleaner and less crazy. Instead of doing a recap of everything I did (cause it's A LOT), I will explain in pictures:
1. Times Square:
2. Ground Zero:
This is a piece of the tower that was carved into the skyline!
3. The World's Biggest Wall of Chocolate:
4. Brooklyn Bridge:
5. Some of New York's finest pizza in Brooklyn:
6. New York style hot dogs:
7. Central Park:
8. Trump Towers:
9. American Museum of Natural History (As seen on Night at the Museum):
10. Ferry Ride to Staten Island to see Statue of Liberty at sunset:
11. Wall Street:
The Bull at the beginning
The Wall Street Sign
New York Stock Exchange
So there you have it. It was quite the trip. I carried everything I brought with me in my backpack. Definitely a poor man's trip to the big city, but totally worth the bus ride! I am completely exhausted today and my legs are SUUUPER sore, but I got to see most of what I wanted to see, and even hit up 4 out of the 5 bureaus (not bad for 30 hours in the city). For those of you in the Park 6th ward, I also got to see Junior Lartey at church, which was pretty crazy! I now declare today a "Kelli Day" (a day that I give to myself about once a week to do whatever I want to do...it's very good for my mental health) to recover from a busy busy weekend!
HAPPY PRESIDENT'S DAY!!
