Until Next Time, New York

I seem to have been putting off writing this last post about New York.  Every time I start a new post, I get to relive the trip.

On our last day before going our separate ways, we went to the Met. It’s somewhere I’ve never been, and somewhere I’ve always wanted to visit.

I do love my share of Gossip Girl, so I couldn’t help but get my Waldorf on. Although I know B wouldn’t approve of my leggings.

We only had about an hour at the museum unfortunately, so I quickly went through the sections I wanted to see.

And on my way out I got a bit lost, but ended up in this beautiful area.

Visiting the Met again is definitely on my to do list for my next trip to NYC.  It’s a building that requires an entire day to go through.  There is also the Neue Galarie across the road that I would love to see. It’s a gallery filled with artwork by Austrian and German artists. It is also the home of Klimt’s 1907 Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer (also known as The Woman in Gold).

So that about wraps up my 2015 trip to New York! There is still so much more to see in the city, so I know I will be back!

A Beautiful Day in New York

Today we got up bright and early to catch the rush line for Beautiful, the new musical about Carole King.

Vivica went ahead to get a spot in line, and I went to the train station to see if my missing suitcase was at the Lost and Found. No such luck. It was definitely stolen.

So I headed over to the Stephen Sondheim Theatre to get in line. If you don’t know what rush is, it is when you go to the theatre the morning (usually for 10am) you want your tickets for. Many Broadway theatres sell any tickets they still have for that day for about $30. Depending on the day, you could end up in one of the first few rows!

English Gardens, Afternoon Tea and the King

When I was in elementary school I loved watching the Eloise films. What little girl wouldn’t want to live at The Plaza Hotel?

On Location at Columbia

I’ve always wanted to visit Columbia University.

It’s featured in many films, and is home to Havemeyer Hall, the most filmed college classroom ever. It’s seen in the Spider-man films, Kinsey, Malcom X, Ghostbusters, and a few of my faves: Mona Lisa Smile and The Mirror Has Two Faces.

Not to mention the fact that the campus is gorgeous!
