I got a little behind on my New York posts, but I kind of fell asleep at like 6:00 on our last night in New York, which is only to be expected after two long weeks of going, going, going.
We went to the Empire State Building. The view of the city from up high is so beautiful!
We ate a splendid panini in Little Italy, followed by some yummy gelato.
Then walked off dessert with a stroll on the Brooklyn Bridge.
I also got to try macarons for the first time from both La Maison du Chocolat and Buchon Bakery. Please don't ask me to pronounce either one of those names. I speak Spanish, not French. The macarons were even better than I imagined them to be! Now I must try to make them myself.
But the sweets didn't stop at macarons. No way. I think it's safe to say we bought 20 cupcakes whilst in NYC, not to mention all the goodies from various bakeries all over the city and the (warm!) chocolate chip cookies I asked for every time I walked through the hotel lobby. This was just our Friday stash. It includes cupcakes from Crumbs (tasty cake), Magnolia Bakery (don't waste your time--they were dry and the icing was nasty), and Cake Boss Cafe (the red velvet was really good).
I thoroughly enjoyed this trip, and I'd love to go back and take Dork with me next time. The city is full of life and excitement, and there are so many different cultures all in one area. Plus, lots of good food. That alone is reason to go back.
