New York Minute ◇ Highlights from NYC

Growing up, I loved watching the Olsen twins, and New York Minute was one of my favorite movies from them. I've seen the movie numerous times and never have I imagined I would someday get to visit New York and experience life in a city where everything is bigger, brighter, and louder. My girlfriends and I were in New York during the last week of June and it was one of the most amazing trips I've ever been on. We ate our way through the beautiful city and trekked 6 miles on average (that's about 12,000 steps!). Having walked so much, somehow I still struggle to tell the difference from streets, blocks, and avenues in the city. The landscapes were mesmerizing and the street views were cute and charming. I wanted to take a piece of the city home with me and the closest solution I found was - actually I found two solutions. One was a video documenting my trip, second was a post detailing the favorite places I visited in New York. Without further ado, below is an overview of the places I visited, including highlights from the trip.
