Becky's first subway ride.
In front of my old apartment.
Dinner at the Shake Shack with Mike and Steve.
After dinner we were walking toward the Empire State Building. I told Becky I would take a picture of her and was getting set when this lady bum walked up behind me and spit on my back! Can you believe that?! That was officially the worst thing that's happened to me in NYC. I was SO disgusted, but glad at least it wasn't something worse. (A friend of a friend was actually peed on by a bum.) That spot on my back is the nasty bum saliva.
Obviously I had to buy a new shirt, so I went into a tourist shop and and was glad for the excuse to get another Yankees shirt.
Taking a soda break.
After dinner and our soda stop in Bryant Park we headed over to Times Square.
My favorite picture of the whole weekend.
Sunday we went to brunch at Crepes on Columbus and then did a little more walking around in the midtown area. Here we are goofing around in FAO Schwarz. We are both anti-Harry Potter.
On my friend Chelsie's roof. I love the stark contrast between Central Park and the buildings.
Sunday evening we walked the Brooklyn Bridge. This was the first time I'd done this and decided it's one of my favorite touristy things. It was an absolute perfect evening, weather wise. We left at the perfect time also. When we got half way the sun was setting and the sky was gorgeous. (That picture I put up a couple posts ago was from walking across the bridge.) The skyline was beautful as the buildings started looking a little bluish and the lights started filling up the windows. There were great views of the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, and the skyline. It really made me wish the Twin Towers were still there.
I love my Manhattan.
After walking the bridge Becky wanted to eat at the Olive Garden so we headed over to Times Square one last time.
I had the best time with Becky out, like I always do. I'm so grateful she can fly for free because it's always so fun having her come visit me in different places. Love you Becky!
