Upper West Side, The Village, Central Park, and The Highline: Summer in the City

We really did have so much fun on our trip to New York last summer. Of course, we've both been to NYC before but every time I go, it's new. It's its own living, breathing, thing. We crammed SO MUCH in. The doctors were impressed at our ability to cram in "funtivities" as Dwight would call them. I think it's one of our main talents as a couple, hah! Ted is great at public transit and I'm good at wanting to do everything and wearing comfortable shoes. Win win. 

City dogs. 

We were so bummed the Guggenheim is CLOSED on Thursdays. This is still on the bucket list for our next visit. 

Central Park--lots of good memories. Walking around in December 2005 with Matt and Jules while a melancholy saxophone played "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas", sweating to death with the friends and eating cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery on Labor Day 2010, and now we have this. A meandering and leisurely stroll just the two of us in 2014. 

 It was so green! 

Good tip from my brother to try this bakery. Oh it was so worth it. (Don't judge, we were doing lots of walking hehe). A fellow Buckeye was working the counter! 

The Highline: is a 1.45-mile-long New York City linear park built in Manhattan on an elevated section of a disused New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side Line. (Thanks Wikipedia)! 
 I love green spaces, especially in the city!
 Best. Tacos. Ever!!!! This post is making me so hangry. 

 The Village. 

I have so much more to share, but I have so many photos I guess it's better to break them down into smaller (hah, that's right, this was small!!) doses.
