Weekly Winners #48 - A weekend in the Big Apple

A Weekly Winners WITHOUT snaps of kids?! Here?! Who woulda thunk?!

Here's a pictorial tour of our whirlwind weekend in NYC:

A Room with a View

Times Square by Day

Times Square by Night

Here's our attempt at a vlog:

(and no disrespect to New Yorkers, actually we encountered the friendliest people there. It was just the Times Square, touristy comment. It was the tourists not saying "hello". )

Greenwich Village




Grand Central and Chrysler Building

Park Avenue

Dinner at Gramercy Tavern:

Museum of Modern Art:


Christina's World




A drink at Les Halles just past noon, complete with Moules Mariniere of course
(we love Anthony Bourdain...)

And then there was more amazing food at La Bottega (black pasta with octopus in spicy tomato sauce... mmm), scrumptious snacks at Dean & Deluca ...

And of course shopping and more shopping.

The kids want to come with us next time. They can't believe we didn't visit Toys R Us again.

We cannot disappoint, right? (Next time cannot come soon enough.)

For other winners, visit LOTUS.



I'm originally from Buffalo, NY and I have. never. been. to. New. York. City. Insane!

Lovely shots, Karen!

These just make me want to go there even more! The oldest wants to go to the city so bad. Wish flights were a cheap as they used to be, we'd do a day trip.

Nice pictures!
I visited New York 13 years ago (!) and I so want to visit it again!

dkuroiwa said...

The one and only time I visited NYC, I was with my step-mom's family and it was. not. a good situation. I'd love to visit again someday without all that angst and yuckiness floating around!

The pictures are spend a day or three at MOMA would be about a step away from Heaven, I think. The K-man has a list of jazz clubs he wants to visit....maybe someday!!
what a great way to vacation!!

Kimmylyn said...

Kori said...

That looks like so much fun! Who knew that NY could be beautiful...perhaps I have lived in Idaho too long.

Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

Freakin' awesome. You guys are so cute at the end of that video! Sounds like you had an awesome time!

gmcountrymama said...

Wow, sounds like you had a wonderful time with hus in NYC.
I also love your flashback photos in your previous post. I also had braces and was really shy. I am glad my kids are not shy.

Miss said...

You two are just SO adorable. Have you heard that before? ;-)

Looks like you had a blast!

Ed (zoesdad) said...

I could spend all day at the MoMa. You really crammed a lot into a weekend!

Kellan said...

How fun - I am sooooo jealous! I have never been to NY, except to fly through or get on a cruise ship! I'd love to go to all of those spots in NY - you lucky girl!

Take care - Kellan
