Steve had a work trip planned to New York in December, so we decided it was a good time for me to tag along again! I've been to NYC with him in the summer, but this was my first time in the winter and at Christmastime. This should be on everyone's bucket list - there's something so magical about a big city during the holidays!
We made it to NYC, but not before some drama! We had a really bad ice storm overnight the night before we were supposed to leave. We hopped in the car around 4:45 to head to the airport, which is 45 minutes from our house, and made it about 10 minutes before realizing we were in for some super scary white-knuckle driving. Quite frankly no one should have been out, but we had a plane to catch! At 5:00am, we were creeping along, slid down a small incline and rammed into a cop car that had just arrived at that same intersection because of two other accidents. Needless to say, the cop was very understanding. It was like an ice rink getting to and from the cars. Our car was badly damaged and we missed our flight. We were barely able to drive our car home, and then tried to get out on a noon flight. We quickly realized the roads were not much better and turned back around. Finally, we left on a 4pm flight the following day and made it just in time to check in and walk around near our hotel. We stayed in mid-town, right near the famous Macy's.
I sat at Bryant park for a while and watched the ice skaters and took pictures of other tourists for them. The weather was cold, but it's fun to be bundled up!
ne of these times, I will see Jimmy Fallon tape a show. He is my celebrity crush, the one person I would pick to have lunch or a drink with. Funny gets me every time.
And I was lucky enough to accompany Steve to one of his client's buildings (200 Park Ave.) for some breathtaking views of the city from the rooftop of the building, 58 stories high. I don't love heights, but for this, I was brave! A once in a lifetime view!
