NYC / by Kate Brightbill

I'm not entirely sure how to summarize a million miles of walking, cabs, and one subway ride all over NYC for four days, so I'll just jump in with pictures. Pictures literally do say 1000 words. If you click on the picture and they have a website, I've done the work for you and linked to it. Just lookin' out here, in case you're on your way that direction and would like to see some pretty spots! 

On our last trip {see it HERE}, we navigated upper manhattan and a bit of union square. Basically I stalked the You've Got Mail scenes in the upper west side with Brian, and ate a lot of bagels in a tiny 24 hour period. 

This trip, we covered lower manhattan: Meatpacking, Chelsea, Flatiron, Soho, Noho, Tribeca, Wall Street, and little bits in between. We got a great last-minute deal on The Standard Hotel for one night, and never wanted to leave! Floor to ceiling city & hudson!! YES. 

Williamsburg, Brooklyn:

NYC is massive, a tiny bit overwhelming to attempt to conquer, filled with treasures and shops and dreams and we absolutely love it. I love traveling. Experiencing life in different places, watching other people's day-to-day, seeing friends in real life and visiting them in their own home is such a treat.


Now we're home sweet home, with a lovely little heat wave sending us to the beach yesterday {with bathing suits! such a rarity in San Francisco!}, and now circulating a bout of flus and fevers to round out the week.

More soon! I have so much to say since my real life is going lightspeeds ahead, and my screen time has been totally depleted in order to keep up!
