Wordless Wednesday: Scenes from NYC

December 21, 2011 · 26 comments

I lied. This actually has words.

But only enough to tell you how much I adore Manhattan

and its rooftop bars

at which I am given a red hooded robe, hot rum apple cider, and coffee with Bailey’s (thank you, 230 Fifth).

And traipsing through Central Park, obviously.

Where I was jealous of every single runner passing me. Why can’t I take my runs through The Big Apple?

Or sit on one of those benches on a daily basis like Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda?

And look at those lights all year round

with some fantastic company

And play in a Bulgarian ice cage regularly?


I’ll just leave you to try to figure that one out.

In the meantime, I’ll be staring longingly at NYC magazine job listings. Someone hold me back.

    (sighs longingly) that all looks much better than sitting in my cubicle at work right now. especially when it’s crap outside.

    I have watched way too much Law & Order to ever want to run in NYC 😉 Looks like you had fun!

    I’m going to have to try these bars you went to! And learning to become a runner in Central Park is pretty much the best, especially the reservoir. I hope you got to see that part!

    Aww you look like you’re having so much fun!! I’m totally jealous! I’ve only been to NYC twice, and I had a great time on both occasions. I don’t think I could live there, though. I already need to wear earplugs to sleep … I can’t even imagine trying to sleep in the middle of NYC every night!

    As much as I love living in New York, I feel like the grass is always greener on the other side. That being said, it is a pretty awesome place to live! 😉
