i am long overdue posting about our wonderful trip to new york city in january. we had so much fun visiting our friends, chantal and paul and seeing the city. we decided to rent an apartment in the upper east side through airbnb; it was a lovely place and really gave us a more genuine feel for the city and what it would be like to live there. we arrived before new year's eve and were able to see times square with our friends as it was being set up for the balldrop. afterwards, we had dinner at the wonderful cafe cluny in the west village.
our second day in the city, we explored 'our' neighborhood in the upper east side where my friend lives and ran in central park. we visited grand central station, the chrysler building, and rockefeller plaza. we saw the ice skating, 30 rock, and the beautiful christmas tree. for new year's eve, we decided to sit out the times square festivities on recommendation from the local, and we went to a party at the empire hotel in lincoln center. we had so much fun dancing and drinking dirty martinis.
i will be posting more this week on the rest of our week in nyc! hope you enjoy.
