We’re having a fun week here with our English relatives visiting! Andy’s sister and brother-in-law, Liz and Ian, arrived on Monday evening and we’ve shown them around Kingston, but tomorrow is when the real fun starts: we’re going down to New York for three nights!
I’m so excited to share the things I love about NYC with Liz and Ian. We’re staying in a friend’s apartment in Brooklyn Heights, so we’ll have the perfect view of Lower Manhattan right out the window, and it’ll be an easy water taxi trip, subway ride, or walk to hit up places like Doughnut Plant, Two Boots Pizza, and the High Line.
We also plan on on going to Top of the Rock: it’s a unique viewpoint since most people go to the top of the Empire State Building for great shots of Manhattan, but Top of the Rock is a bit further uptown so you can see the ESB from 70 stories up. Can’t wait!
The Staten Island ferry is another good option for great views of the city, mainly because it’s free and I’ve gotten some wonderful pictures from the ferry at sunset.
We will be back here in the Hudson Valley late Monday or early Tuesday (after Easter with my parents), but I’m trying to savor this week as much as possible. It’s so nice getting to know one of my sister-in-laws and feeling completely comfortable having them both here. Yay!
