I came back with a pretty awful cold, but nonetheless NYC in the summer is absolutely perfect. It was hot, but extremely manageable considering I live here in Hawaii where it's summer every day. I covered so much ground, had some amazing eating adventures, shopped till I literally dropped, and spent quality time with so many old friends. Some of my favorite spots were Dover Street Market, Whitney Museum, Mociun, Bird, American Two Shot, Creatures of Comfort, 15 East, Dimes, Brooklyn Crab, and Frankies Spuntino. They're all definitely all places that made me the happiest! I'm so sad to have left New York at such a wonderful time, but excited for my next adventure to Chicago in 2 weeks! Thank you to all my friends and family who made this trip so memorable and for hanging out with me every minute of the day!
