Meet me half way

One of my favourite mornings whilst away in New York was spent on Brooklyn Bridge. This Manhattan landmark is one of my favourite spots in all the world and one I've visited many times before, but never with my family. They loved it just as much as me and, thanks to the current repairs taking place, we all enjoyed reading the hilarious and often moving phrases and lyrics people have begun to write on some of the metal hoardings. 

Here are some of my favourite pictures from our morning on the bridge.

Fishs Eddy - A New York fave

For me, an element of any visit to New York City is always going to revolve around shopping and this trip was no different. Although I didn't spend as much money on fashion as in previous years, I did make up for it on crockery after the discovery of Fishs Eddy an amazing homewares store right in the heart of Midtown.

Damn you flight weight restrictions.

  Fishs Eddy have a great blog which can be found here. Or, if you're ever in New York you can visit the store at 889 Broadway (I certainly will be next time I'm in the city).

NYC Part 2: A New York state of mind

It's been a few weeks since we returned to British soil but NYC is still firmly in my mind and I thought it was about time I gave you a further update on our adventure.

Our first few days seemed to pass wonderfully slowly, with us managing to cram a lot into a relatively short amount of time, but before we knew it, it was Wednesday and we headed out for breakfast at Juniors. Corned beef hash with a poached egg. Again, YUM.

Breakfast at Junior's 

We headed downtown to the High Line and on through the Meatpacking District to the Staten Island Ferry to take some pictures of the tip of Manhattan and Lady Liberty. We even managed to find a Quilting shop for Mum on the way, earning Dad some extra Brownie points.

We couldn't have picked a better day, the sun was shining and it was even a little warm when you were out of the shade. The boat wasn't too busy and we were able to rest a while whilst enjoying the view. Had it not been for Mum, Mark and The Boy dawdling and missing the ferry back we would have been over and back in no time, but instead Dad and I were forced to wait in the ferry terminal back in Manhattan until they eventually turned up. Good one guys.

Next we went to Union Square and Dad made a beeline for the Heartland Brewery, before we all headed out for a spot of shopping (Hello new wedge boots) followed by taking some pictures at the Flatiron.

Mmmmmmm, steak at Keens

Wednesday was date night and The Boy and I chose to try Keens Steakhouse near Macy's. It was amazing. More meat than you can imagine and had a really cosy and friendly atmosphere where we chatted to the people at the tables next to us. The lighting was low and romantic, which unfortunately meant that my photos didn't come out quite as well as I'd hoped but I would recommend this restaurant to anyone hoping for a unique night out in NYC.
