Do you know what happens when you spend about a month in New York City? Well, you are about to find out.
I spent 3 weeks in the city that never sleeps this month (hence the radio silence) and experienced it like never before thanks to two weddings and my favorite city expert, Mackenzie. My month in New York started with a wedding just outside the city, but a quick stop to Shake Shack and a stroll through SoHo were a must.
The next week, Mackenzie and I jetted back to the city for a week full of fashion, food and all of her favorite local spots. We walked everywhere, took a pedi-cab from Midtown to Chelsea (I hope you saw our Snapchats!), and ate our way through the city. I had the best time and I am so lucky to have a new friend to share these memories with! Stay tuned for our next adventure, Nantucket.
The following weekend, Patrick and I headed back to the city for a friend’s wedding. We stayed in Tribeca, which was a first for us. I loved being so close to the water and spending time with great friends in the city.
Here is my mini-guide to Manhattan:
