07.29.13How to Spend Your Last Week in NYC

This one is tricky. How in the world do you spend your last week in New York? I’ve only lived here for about a year, but I already know that no matter how long I lived in NYC, I would never feel like I did/saw/ate/experienced everything there was to do. There will always be something you want to check out, mostly because this city is always in flux and always changing. Every season brings about a new round of fun activities, museums change out their exhibitions every few months, new eateries pop up every two seconds, etc. And this is the very reason I love New York City so much.

With some time off work, we decided to balance our time packing, resting, working on pre-school projects, exploring the city, and seeing our friends. Here are some of our highlights:

1. Citi Bike Rentals




2. Lunch at The Little Owl, compliments of Stephanie (this was where we went for a “moving to New York” celebration lunch last summer). Any “Friends” fans recognize the apartment building above the restaurant?!


3. NYC Restaurant Week dinner next door at Cipriani Wall Street (pardon the bad picture)

Dinner, drinks, and dessert (S’MORES!) at Station in Williamsburg with my old roomies, Christy and Whitney, and W’s boyfriend, SeanIMG_5826 IMG_5828 IMG_5829 IMG_5855 6. Wait in line from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in Central Park for free tickets to Love’s Labour’s Lost at Shakespeare in the Park. Then see the show later that night with friends!IMG_5858 IMG_5861 IMG_58637. Go to the Rooftop of the Met with Maggie & Jonathan to take in my favorite view of the city

10. PACK! Sell furniture! And in between all that fun stuff, we’ve managed to get our apartment in this shape:


Moving day is Wednesday! Wish us luck! If there’s one terrible thing about NYC, it’s moving in and out of it. Logistics disaster!
