trip to NYC

June 23, 2009

i went to NY this past week to celebrate a friend’s 40th. he and another good friend of ours do this trip every year, mainly to see a handful of broadway shows. i’m not much of a theater queen, but used my friend’s 40th this year as an excuse to make it out.

each show i saw was great! hair, fuerzabruta and broadway bares. so much fun.

but what i also love to do when in a city that isn’t my own is walk around to see the people, public spaces, buildings and art, and NY is one of the best places to do it. below are some of my favorite scenes from the week.

 

taken from high line. a little hard to see, but great street art on the wall.
