even though i’ve been to new york almost every year growing up, i’ve never made it down into the city. realizing this discrepancy, i decided to visit the big apple and see what all the hype was about. hype indeed. that place is so much fun!
armed with a little bit of knowledge of the transit system and a hotel room, i flew into the city midweek. before i could meet up my friend haley for dinner, i had to be schooled a bit in the transit system and how it worked. (this wouldn’t be my last lesson either.) but i finally made it to my spot on the upper west side, the belnord hotel, which when i visit NYC again i’ll book a room.
i walked around until i found sarabeth’s. i was almost an hour late and very hungry. sarabeth’s did not disappoint. and it was good to catch up with haley.
another note about my room: after staying there for a week, i felt like a new york city resident. i believe my garage alone is bigger than the room (including closet) and bathroom combined. that is the standard size from what i keep hearing.
oh, and my next trip would be taken in the spring or fall. never again in the summer. despite being in the north, temperatures were what i left behind in knoxtropolis…plus some humidity.
