Okay confession I’m not a huge Broadway show person. But when going to New York you kind of have to go. WELL it ended up that we didn’t get tickets for anything on Broadway (HA!) and we did get to go to Upright Citizens Brigade.
And one of the Sonic commercial guys was part of the performance!
We also ate cannolis from the new Cake Boss restaurant in Times Square.
I have to stop for a moment and mention there is a third one of us on this excursion. It’s Ashley. She is not in these pictures because I took all of the ones I’m posting from her Facebook which were pictures that she uploaded from her phone. And yes I broke my vow of Facebook deactivation to log onto Facebook for like ten minutes to get some New York pictures BUT I DID IT FOR YOU GUYS.
I’ll post more pictures as we go, promise. I’ll sneak one in after a week or so and be like “REMEMBER NEW YORK?”
Anyway we also did the Harry Potter Experience. I was Sorted into Ravenclaw. Why? Glasses, probably. I should have stood up in kinetics on Monday as we were told the bad news about our exams and been like “BUT I WAS SORTED. INTO RAVENCLAW.” It would have gone over really well.
BUT YES! New York was so much fun! We got to hang out with our sophomore year roommate Darcie who’s also in the city! And I rode a zillion trains and saw rats. Mostly alive ones. I saw one dead one. Oh and doggies. Lots of dogs in sweaters.
We ate pizza and a hot dog from a hot dog stand. Let me just point out again that half of my city experience just reminded me of stuff I’d do in Grand Theft Auto (you have to go around looking for hot dog stands when you’re low on health).
OH WE ALSO saw Jimmy Fallon’s monologue rehearsal last Tuesday. He is such a doll!
I definitely have to go back because there is just so much more to see. We visited the 9/11 Memorial, which was so powerful. But I need to go back when all the museums and other parts are open.
And that’s the end!
