I’ve returned from New York city. Being in the middle of a move, I haven’t had much downtime to sit and think about what I thought of the city or what I came away from it with. Actually, I haven’t even had time to go back and look at all the photos from the trip yet! Needless to say, it’s probably a trip that’s going to require me to post in stages about because I can’t manage to get my shit together. Plus, there are TONS of great photos and rather than post them all at once I figure I can be nice and sort them into some type of order. And, you know, that moving lack of internet thing plays a part as well!
Even if I haven’t had time to delve into the emotional side of my trip, there are a few things I DO know:
-I really really hate crowds. I mean, with a fiery passion.
-Brooklyn and Little Italy are the only places in all of New York that I actually felt relaxed and at home
-Chinatown is one of the most disgusting places in existence. It got to the point that I would tense up even driving by it (and even when I didn’t realize I was going by it!)
-The 9/11 Memorial is one of the most beautifully designed memorials I’ve ever seen. And yes, I’ve seen all the ones in D.C. Everything about the 9/11 one is perfect.
-I’m glad I visited but I never could have done it alone and, honestly, unless the guy in Brooklyn will adopt me and let me move into his basement I don’t think I ever care to experience the city again.
-14 is an awesome number
– Bart at NY Adorned is an artistic genius
-I’m still finding glitter from Rock of Ages in all sorts of intriguing places
And, now I must return to work. Hopefully I can find time this weekend to sort through some photos and get them posted while at work next week.
