7.13.10 Life in NYC

Thank you so much to everyone who commented on my YouTube flowchart! A post about VidCon and then a very special post I've been waiting to post for a long time will be coming soon, but for now I'm putting up one I wrote about a week ago but never actually put up. Let me know if you guys like these kind of photo posts or if you find them boring. Ok, enjoy!

:: LEGO Store ::

On Friday my friends and I trekked up to Rockefeller Center to see the new LEGO store that had just opened a few days beforehand. It was pretty awesome - the selection of merchandise wasn't great and everything was exectedly overpriced, but they had displays set up of scenes of the city and various giant LEGO sculptures and it was just a really great atmosphere.

:: Awesome Hotel ::

After the LEGO store, we didn't really have anything to do so we walked about 40 blocks back to our apartment. On the way, we passed this beautiful hotel. I don't remember the name of it, so if any of you guys know, tell me in the comments.

:: Central Park ::

On the 4th of July, we had a picnic in Central Park, which consisted a lot of us lying on the ground looking up at the trees and just being generally silly. I didn't get any photos of the actual picnic, but it was delicious.

:: Fireworks ::

Then we walked down to 12th Avenue for the New York City fireworks. They were absolutely beautiful, and not nearly as loud as I was expecting. It was the first time I had seen fireworks in about 15 years but that's probably enough for me. Honestly, it's just kind of the same thing over and over. But I did get some good photos, so yay.


  1. It's the Gershwin hotel - I stayed there once for a photographer's funeral; it's full of gorgeous art squeezed into every crooked corner. It's a really neat spot, very colorful.

    And I didn't know there was a LEGO store like that, how cool!

  2. The Gershwin! I stayed there once... Second the above endorsement. Crazy artsiness all over everywhere.
