The New York Diaries #6

Walking along the Brooklyn Bridge and exploring Brooklyn/Williamsburg was the original plan for day 6 – but before I headed to the other side of the river, I made a quick stop for breakfast at Egg Shop, which was recommended in Kate’s post. I had the Benedict cruiser and it was the most delicious thing ever. Totally worth the visit! The experience of walking the Brooklyn Bridge was fantastic, it’s a beautiful piece of architecture and the view from the bridge back to Manhattan is incredible! I spent a lot of time in the Brooklyn Bridge Park just sitting down…

The New York Diaries #5

My fifth day in NYC was very exciting as I spent it around Soho and The Village exploring really cool shops and sights, including buildings that were used as exterior shots for my all time favourite TV Show, Friends. Another highlight was the appointment at Bite Beauty Lab, where I got to make my personalised lipstick – really cool, and very recommended if you like makeup! O meu quinto dia em Nova Iorque foi excelente – passei o dia a passear pelo Soho e pela Village, a explorar lojas muito giras e a ver sítios muito giros, incluíndo os prédios…

The New York Diares #4

My fourth day in NYC was lovely and sunny, and so I walked to the Highline, and walked through it down to Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. The walk was great and the Highline is such an unusual, cool space! I then went to Chelsea Market, explored for a bit and had a delicious taco for lunch – the market is absolutely incredible, well worth a visit.  It was then time to head downtown to visit the 9/11 Memorial and Museum – like a good part of the world I remember that day all too vividly and wanted to pay…

My third day in NYC coincided with International Women’s Day 2016 – and I thought that going to the UN Headquarters would be a cool way to celebrate it, especially as this very cool moment was happening during my tour of the building! I then headed to Madison Square Park for lunch at the outdoor Shake Shack – it was a lovely sunny day and eating outside with a view of the Flatiron building on one side, and the Empire State Building on the other was incredible! At the end of the day I head up to Top of the Rock…

The New York Diaries #2

My second day in New York was dedicated to the museums within the ‘Museum Mile’ on Fifth Avenue. But before I started exploring, I headed to UrbanSpace Vanderbilt, a very cool food market just behind Grand Central Station, to try out the incredible (and HUGE) donuts from Dough. Here are the photos from that day! O meu segundo dia em Nova Iorque foi dedicado aos museus da ‘Museum Mile’ na Quinta Avenida. Mas antes de começar a explorar, visitei o UrbanSpace Vanderbilt, um mercado de comida muito giro por trás da Grand Central Station, para experimentar os fantásticos (e ENORMES)…
