NYC [Day 2]

Jake and I woke up to this view and decided that we I had to have mini photo shoot! Hah... After getting ready, we walked to Chelsea Market via the Highline which was very cool. It's an elevated old train track that's been restored and turned into a park {what?!?!}. Yup. That's NYC for you. 

Below is the infamous elevator @ our hotel where Jay-Z and Solange had their fight! I had to take a selfie in there. Haha... Also where I think I spotted a celebrity but couldn't tell you who. Jake was making fun of me, but I swear. He looked like a musician or actor or something. I could just tell. How can you go to NYC and not spot at least one celebrity??!? I mean, c'mon.

Walking on the Highline -- a little rain couldn't stop us.

CHELSEA MARKET: {it's an old nabisco factory that's been restored} was really fun too. We walked around and checked out all the cute shops including Artists & Fleas. Loved that! I bought a couple new midi rings from Cynthia Rybakoff.  We stopped for brunch/breakfast at Friedman's Lunch which is smack dab in the middle of the market. I had a delicious avocado, egg and cheese breakfast sandwich. 

The SUBWAY: Since we "mastered" the Subway the day before, we decided to use that as our main mode of transportation. We took it to midtown to MoMa - buy tickets in advance if you can, it's cheaper and we got to skip the long ticket line.  BTW, it only took me about 15 tries to get the photo below without random people in it. Your welcome. 

MOMA: This was probably one of my favorite things we did in nyc. Although my feet were killing me, I was trying to hang with the real new yorkers and wear my heeled booties. I had to sit down about 50 times and Jake was probably feeling like he was married to a grandma. oops. 

In all her glory.... Starry Night! Oh man. This was just incredible to see in person. 

WILLIAMSBURG: In the late afternoon, we took the Subway down to Williamsburg {Brooklyn} and went to Momofuku Milk Bar and Catbird {jewelry store}.  Love Catbird! They make all the jewelry by hand in their studio in Brooklyn. So cool, right?!? I picked up this midi ring. 

I think I discovered Momofuku on Instagram. I can't really describe it other than complete amazing deliciousness. You must try it. They have lots of different desserts and it's just a very creative concept in general. 

"Crack Pie" -- completely addicting and delicious.

For dinner, we went to Nobu New York. One of the top 5 meals of my life. I could really get used to this traveling thing.
