NYC day 2

Waking up super excited at the day ahead, we leapt out of bed and quite literally hop skipped and jumped across to the subway.

A local market was on in Union Square on 14th street so we grabbed fresh juices and breakfast muffins and soaked up the sunshine before Jamie had to dash off to more meetings.

I did some more exploring whilst I waited for him. The New York Library.

The Post Office.  They certainly don’t do things by half here!

With the weather being so stunning we decided to walk the High Line from 34th street down to the Meatpacking District.

The High Line is the old railway line that sits above the city.

It is so well thought out with little seating areas and food stalls along the way and the views are wonderful.

This would be up there with one of the best things I would recommend to do.

The High Line

I was told that there was a restaurant at the end that served the best pulled pork burgers and we reckoned that it must be Bubby’s.

This was the most fabulous restaurant full of locals…two actresses were on the table next to us and were making us try their cocktails and helping themselves to our mac n cheese – this just doesn’t happen in London.

We walked down to the river and caught sight of Lady Liberty in all her glory.

Ashley came to meet us and we went for an adventure around the area.  We were deep in discussion…

The Meatpacking District used to be as the title suggests, but now is super trendy and we have earmarked it as the area we want to live in.  Of course it is eye wateringly expensive – think of it as Shoreditch crossed with Sloane Square.  We walked for miles around the West Village, Greenwich Village and Chelsea ending up in Washington Square which was stunning.

Jamie had an evening meeting so I went for a potter around Chelsea Market.  This isn’t like a normal sort of market, rather than stalls it is made up of lots of little shops.  You can buy anything from jewellery to bread or stop for a glass of wine.

In New York there are lots of areas just with tables and chairs where you can rest your feet and soak it all in.

I was so overwhelmed that I was finally here and overwhelmed at the vibrancy of the city.  We finished off our wonderful day with late night bubbles and a charcuterie board opting for a window seat to watch the world go by.
