NYC

A few months back, when Peloton announced they were restarting studio rides, one of my friends and I decided a trip to New York was in order to take one. Sadly, we didn’t manage to get ourselves into a ride, but we had a fun long weekend anyway. One day we walked the breadth of the park, another we walked the length. I started to feel competent at navigating via subway only to have our main line rerouted two days into the trip (and then really comfortable when we figured out that reroute). I just wanted to jot down a few favorites (and recommend that if you ever get a chance to see Come From Away, that you take it.)

Memorable Eats: Gallaghers (the mac and cheese was tops from the trip), Il Mulino, Sadelles, The Central Park Boathouse
Shows: The Music Man, Come From Away (definitely in my top 3 shows of all time, very likely number one).
Sights: Jesse and I came across the Flat Iron Building, the New York Public Library, the Central Park Zoo, and the Empire State Building while wandering the city. We also spent a good amount of time wandering the park. I spent a couple hours wandering the Met (I definitely want to go and spend a longer period of time). I loved the Bernd & Hilla Becher exhibit, stumbling upon a Renoir and knowing it without knowing how I knew, and some metal work on display in the Egyptian art collection.
