Never-Before-Seen New York Adventures

It has been brought to my attention that people actually read my New York blog posts (SO flattered! Thanks!) and some have even felt inspired to explore more of the city after reading. This has encouraged me to flush out a few more posts about my New York experiences. Below are never-before-seen, all-new blog posts from my summer in New York. I hope they’re helpful and inspire you to go out and explore!

Union Square

This little square in Manhattan holds a special place in my heart. During the summer, I lived only 1 street away, so I often went to Union Square at night to walk, call family and friends, and people-watch. There was always something going on, and the busy little piece of concrete was like my second home away from home. I do not by any means “know-it-all,” but I would like to share some of my favorite places and moments from my times there. CAUTION: get ready for a picture-filled post!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Gone, But Not Forgotten

Green Tea Ice Cream at Sundaes and Cones in New York

My love, green tea ice cream.

I cannot tell you how many times I got this particular ice cream flavor from this particular ice cream shop in New York over the summer. Sundaes and Cones inevitably became my destination for a casual walk after dinner, the ice cream shop to introduce to my visiting friends, and my go-to store when I craved, no, needed, green tea flavored ice cream. I probably spent a good chunk of my summer paycheck on this $4.10-a-cone ice cream. I’m gone now, but the smooth, creamy green tea taste will surely not be forgotten.

P.S. Read my NYC Food Adventures if you’re in the city and need a recommendation!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular

When I saw this week’s photo challenge – angular – I immediately thought of this building I saw at the High Line in NYC:

Angular Building on the High Line

This photo was taken when I lived in New York this summer. It was one of the best things I’ve done in my life so far, and I look forward to do it again. Not necessarily live in New York, but to live and work in another city on my own. It was such a great growing experience.
