We crash landed in New York early Friday afternoon and had a great first day in the city. We wandered the High Line (which was amazing) and had a margarita happy hour then dinner at a tapas place before finding another fun bar. It was a perfect first night.
Then we woke up just in time to evacuate our Battery Park Marriott. Good times.
The hotel transferred us up to the Times Square Marriott and we spent most of the day hiding in the hotel, watching the news and My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding on TLC while waiting for the storm to hit. (Though we did get dressed up - that's the photo on the left.)
And then we woke up this morning to find the storm had passed with relatively little fanfare. (Thank goodness.) We wandered a very crowded Times Square and then through Central Park (photo on the right) and down by 30 Rock. Because all the stores and restaurants were anticipating a very heavy storm day today, almost everything is closed.
But we're continuing to make the best of it and are now safe at our friend Michelle's apartment in the West Village. We'll be adventuring out later today for some dinner and are hoping for a very sunny Monday.
ps : photos above were taken with the PictureShow app & I'm updating a lot on twitter and instagram (elisejoy) while the internet is sparse.
