New York - Philadelphia - Washington DC

Brooklyn Rooftops Skyline Shadow Box by Pepper Sprouts


I AM GOING TO NEW YORK!!! Steph has to go home to NY to take some kind of bar related exam (don't ask me!) and we decided that I would go too. I am so excited! We're going to spend a day or two with her family and then drive to Philadelphia and then Washington DC to visit some beloved friends. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give me some tips of places to go and things to see in NYC. I'm not interested in big art galleries and things... I want to see the real city - the cute shops, cafes, and backstreets. OH, and cupcake places. I'm eagerly awaiting your recommendations.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I've never been to NYC, but I've been to Philly a few times and can tell you I will crave Capogiro Gelato :)

Hi ,i have really enjoyed the time looking at your blogs etc. re. n.y . the american museum of folk art really would appeal to your aesthetic , next to .m.o.m.a but not so overwhelming and full of amazing work

St. Marks Bookshop is fantastic.
And the Center for Book Arts is great.
