This last trip to New York City, we didn’t have a lot of set plans. Our schedule consisted of waking up in the morning and picking a place on the map that looked interesting then taking it from there. This is how we discovered the Chelsea Market. It. Is. Glorious. The old brick building, the re-purposed materials as decor and furnishings, all the different restaurants…. It’s beautiful.
Take a look at the Stray Kat art gallery… the owner is as entertaining as any of the paintings…
You could buy some post cards…
Or you could buy some hand made cards from the nicest person in NYC..
Look at that table!
I almost have enough crates to make a wall like this…
So if you’re in the Chelsea neighborhood and you have some time, go take a look. You won’t regret it!
When traveling, it’s always best to just go with the flow. Embrace whatever comes your way. On my first night in NYC, the first thing that came our way was a mid-week dance party in a barbershop. We had just gotten in that afternoon. We checked into our hostel and then went for a short walk around our section of The City. On our way back, when most businesses were closed, we saw all the lights on in one store and the music was PUMPING! After staring inside for several minutes, while making our best sad puppy faces, we got invited inside!
They were so welcoming! It turns out the place doesn’t actually double as a nightclub, but it was just someone’s birthday.
There was an abundance of food, Corona and dance partners. It was such a blast! Vaniella even got a to-go plate!
I took a trip to New York in the summer of 2011 with my cousin and one of my best friends. We planned ahead of time to make a vieo to this song while we were there. The song is from the TV show GLEE and I think the video is quite entertaining. Leave me your thoughts and ideas for my next one!
