New York, New York

(Sippin' Lemonade)
Jesse and I went to New York for our first year anniversary trip to visit our friends Sam and Erin for five days. Luckily for us we were able to stay with Sam and Erin in their amazing little apartment in Long Island City with an amazing view of Manhattan. We had soo much fun checking out all the fun areas of New York. My mom would call and give me suggestions of places to go from what she had seen on Food TV so we got to hit up some great little restaurants. We found the top place to get philly cheasesteak sandwiches, Jesse still thinks Davonci's is still the best though. We had organic doughnuts with fresh squeezed raspberry lemonade, delicious deli sandwiches, black and white cookies, yummy thai food and a lot more!!! We got half price tickets to Phantom of the Opera which was a lot of fun and a great musical to see. It is amazing that even though it has been out for years and years it still sells out, even standing room does, every night!!! Of course we had to go to Canal street and hit up all the back rooms to get some purses, jewelry and watches, for the guys, which was quite the experience following people down streets into these tiny back rooms!!! The last day we hit up Coney Island and were both a bit disappointed in it. We did ride the ferris wheel though which was a bit scary but you could get a great view of the whole park and ocean. We learned how to get everywhere by the subway and found that New Yorkers are really helpful when they see that you are trying to figure out how to get somewhere. Overall a great trip and something that we will always remember for years to come!!!
