NEW YORK PHOTO DIARY


I travel to New York City almost every other month for work yet since I'm mainly there for business, I don't have the desire to be a tourist & take pictures. This time, I made an effort to capture some people/places/things that Manhattan has to offer.

 BITE SIZE CUPCAKES FROM BAKED BY MELISSA MAKES FOR A NICE TREAT AFTER SHOPPING IN SOHO.
 MY HOTEL ROOM WHICH I ONLY OCCUPIED TO SHOWER AND SLEEP.
 DINNER AT MACELLERIA IN MPD - CLAM CASINO W/ BACON, VEAL PICCATA W/ ARTICHOKES & FETTUCCINE W/ LAMB RAGU.
 TIMES SQUARE WAS EVACUATED DUE TO A SUSPICIOUS PACKAGE SO I COULDN'T GET BACK TO MY HOTEL FOR A FEW HOURS. 
 MCQUEEN EXHIBIT AT THE MET - FAIL. THEIR WEBSITE STATED THEY WERE OPENED UNTIL 9PM BUT IN REALITY CLOSED AT 5PM.
ESCAPED PEACOCK FROM CENTRAL PARK SPOTTED WHILE IN A TAXI. 
AFTER A DELAYED FLIGHT DUE TO RAIN & TURBULENT SKIES, I'M BACK HOME!

There was never a dull moment. Besides working, the short 3 day trip consisted of shopping in Soho, dinner with JB at Macelleria, a failed attempted at viewing the McQueen exhibit, an escaped peacock spotting on the UES, evacuation of Times Square, and flight delay due to heavy rain.

I'm trying to make it a point to schedule a trip to NYC solely for leisure. That would be nice...

  5. So glad you got to capture photos from a tourist's angle this time :) I wish you could have experienced the McQueen exhibit, but at least you had quite an adventure with the runaway peacock and delectable food.
