Girls About Town

New York City

  • is smelly
  • is loud (but comfortingly so, since I live in a noisy urban area in my town)
  • is yellow (I’ve never seen so many cabs)
  • is always under construction
  • has amazing food delivery services, which Annika and I took advantage of often after collapsing on our beds in heaps of exhaustion
  • is hot…not as hot as Houston, but maybe more humid??! (can’t believe I’m saying that)
  • is virtually unexplorable when it rains (okay maybe I’m a big baby about getting wet)
  • is full of gorgeous buildings
  • …and gorgeous parks big and small
  • puts everything right at your fingertips
  • is the capitol of fashion
  • is unforgettable, I want to be back already!!

    I loved visiting NYC each time I went. The last time we were there it rained pretty much every day, but it was still very fun. Glad your trip went so well!

  • Hallie

    I LOVE how you say NY is loud, but "comfortably so." Couldn't agree more!

    Will there be a new BDIB series soon? I can't wait!
