Friday Favourites- NYC 2

Happy Friday, friends! And happy August! Before summer ends, I should post those last NYC pics from our second day, no?! My cousin Chad, the girls and I headed to the city to meet his sister Shanel for some Big Apple fun.

We always take the LIRR from Long Island, a very quick train ride away. 

We made it. Now for a very traffic laden Uber ride to....

Alice's Tea Cup, Chapter 2... this kitchy tea joint with such a cute and whimsical vibe...

Yep, Alice in the back... so many little nooks and cranies to explore in this restaurant. 

Then, C and I took a subway and sprinted to Broadway to see.... Wicked. It was such a phenomenal show-- such a beautiful story, exquisite set design and phenomenal acting.... I highly recommend it for both adults and older kids. One of my very favourites so far.

In the meanwhile, this little one headed to Battery Park.

We met up after and A quickly found a new favourite person....

Yep, all through the seats of NYC.

Everything around Broadway was busy so we made our way via train to Shanel's recommendation, NoMo Kitchen, a modern restaurant with delicious fresh, farm to table creations...

But first, we admired their lobby.


And cocktails...

The NoMo Hotel's lobby is so beautiful... lots of photo opps for these posers... 

All of us...

And the outside of the hotel was very cool as well.

A 7 for this almost 7 year old--- I just had to...

Back on the our regularly scheduled mode of transport....

Shanel is clearly stronger than us all walking faster than us all with a forty pound weight on her back.  She said that A was no more than a heavy back pack.

Next stop Taiyaki NYC, ice cream in fish shaped cakes used as cones.... the ice cream was so delicious and so pretty.

A park and a walk through the city.... so pretty.

We love our day trips to the city when we visit NYC... so many sights and sounds, fun things to do, cool experiences and funky restaurants! What's your favourite thing to do in the Big Apple? 


  1. I love all the pictures! We're not too far from NYC and we don't nearly take as much advantage of it as we should. I've always wanted to check out that sea glass carousel.

  2. Wow, you went to so many cool places! I really wanted to go to the carousel last time I was in NYC after I saw it on Younger! That's so fun that you saw Wicked too!

  3. Those ice cream cones!! I love going to Greenwich Village when we are there.

  4. Looks like a fun day in NYC! I was there last month and had lunch with my husband at NoMo, we had burgers and loved them, plus the decor was so beautiful!

  5. New York is such a great place to visit. We have been a few times and want to go back soon!

  6. That sounds like another really wonderful day! I love those beautiful ice creams.

  7. What a fun trip! I adore NYC! The girls looks so cute in their matching dresses and you look fabulous as always!


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
