This was only my second time in New York. The first was with my husband a few years earlier. New York captured my heart as a young girl, seeing it glamorously portrayed in movies and on television (and even no so glamorously), and while my first time there was pretty epic, this time around I was by myself with no agenda to follow but my own. This trip was a combination of work and play, with a few days off to enjoy the city and hang out with my brother-in-law for a bit. To say I was excited is an understatement—I was fucking stoked! Here’s a rundown of day 1.

  • Waiting to board. A bum knee was NOT going to stop me. (Damn, nice shoes though!)
  • You know there are more bridges connecting Manhattan than just the Brooklyn Bridge! Here’s some detail of the Manhattan Bridge.
  • I stayed in Williamsburg, where there is a large Hasidic community. As I watched them over these days, I noticed that they don’t seem very happy. They don’t smile much and do not want to be engaged with.
  • We stopped to meet one of Cory’s good friends, a fellow stylist. Her daughter, a little diva-in-training, was very sweet.
  • Pay not attention to the crazy blonde broad in Brooklyn.
  • Amazing street art…no surprise there.
  • Can’t stop progress.
  • What a great first day! (And apparently, I’m hilarious.)

There’s more to the story. Check out Day 2, or my 2015 April NY Flickr. I’m pretty pleased with the pictures this time around, but every photo opportunity makes you better and I know what I will do differently next time. Because yes, there will be a next time.
