Ever since I've been back, I've been having a hard time. I'm working my way towards moving to the east coast with my goal being that I will tough it out for one year. I unintentionally timed my trip in between two polar vortexes and somehow seemed to miss the shit weather I was meaning to find.
Instead, I got what you see in the picture above. The meaning of my trip turned out to be a dud! Thankfully it didn't ultimately end up being a dud, but I was looking forward to seeing snow. It's the northeast for christ sake! It should be colder than 35 degrees Fahrenheit, am i right?
While I am sitting here and bitching, my trip didn't come one bit close to being a dud in reality. I was able to see some of the best city-scapes in the world. I had some incredible food, and I was able to talk to some incredible people. What more could you as for from any vacation?
The food in New York is probably the most diverse of any place I've visited. Even in Los Angeles! Check out some of the food I ate.
|Handi Restaurant, 113 Lexington Ave, NY|
|Rare Burger topped with brie on an onion bun|
The Counter (Build it yourself Burger Joint), Times Square
|Minca Ramen, The best meal (and the first) I had the whole trip.|
536 E 5th St, East Village, Manhattan
|The biggest God Damn Pizza Ever!!|
Koronet Pizza, 2848 Broadway, Upper West Side
All in all, I can honestly say that I had the time of my life. The only bummer is that I was only there for four days. Thankfully, I will be going back in September for a full week at least. More or less a 9 day stay, and that sounds OK.
If any of you want to go on a trip to somewhere diverse, that has as many activities that are free as there is paid, New York is where it's at. You can experience the best and worst parts of America here. I can't wait to come back myself. Let me know if you would like some reccomendations. I have many for food and even more for beer.
