On my way back from Puerto Rico, see that post here, we had a VERY LOOOONG layover in New York. Originally, we were going to have close to 8 hours but the flight was delayed due to weather conditions for about 6 more hours, so we got more time than expected. Can’t complain! While most people were stuck in an airport, we had the perk of being able to leave our bags under the care of central bagging, thanks to my friend, who is an employee of the airline we were flying with, and we left to venture in the city.
Needless to say, New York is one of my favorite cities in the world. This is a city that fills my need for diversity, culture, gastronomy and arts. I lived in New York when I was a college student as part of an internship program with NYU. I went back to Utah to get married, and with that, my New York City adventure ended. I make it a priority to go back as often as I’m able to, but even so, one of the “what if’s” I will ALWAYS have, will be: What and How my life would have turned out had I not chosen to go back to Utah? I only know one thing for sure and that is I would have never met Amor and therefore we wouldn’t have the family we have now.
Just a few pictures of a New York day:
On our way there!
We went here specifically for the boneless chicken crackling and we were NOT disappointed. I even brought some home with me. Hope you are not thinking that we were capable of eating EVERYTHING you see on that table (HA!)
Our church's temple it’s located on Columbus Avenue. It looks just like one more building, not the type of “castle” looking structure you are accustomed to seeing in other parts of the world.
Lincoln Center: the world’s leading performing arts center and where many of my nights were spent appreciating the many concerts and events.
Any other New York city lovers out there?
