New York Photo Diary: Day 1&2

Here’s our “home” in NY: Our cozy flat in Chelsea. It’s in such a beautiful tree-lined street, right smack in the center of the art gallery district of Manhattan 🙂 We booked this brownstone apartment via Roomorama.
 Our apartment is just a few blocks away from my favorite Whole Foods Market.
Our very first lunch in the city: Rocket Pig, just a few steps away from our apartment.
For Patrick’s birthday we trekked to SOHO for the FAMOUS Cuban Corn from Cafe Habana. The.Best.COOOOOORNNNNNN ever!!! 🙂 🙂 Actual tears rolled down my face! Even their Quesadilla de Pollo was insanely good, perhaps the best tasting I’ve ever had. I vow to come back before we leave the city.
For a sweet tooth fix after lunch, we dropped by the Doughnut Plant at 23rd street. Yummm!!!
We met up with our Manila friends BJ, Nikki and King. Our NY tour guides brought us to Chelsea Market. It’s an enclosed food court with lots of great little restaurants and food shops. They also had an Anthropologie store inside—but I had to look away!!! I promised myself to make this a foodie trip so I’m trying to abstain from shopping, hehehe. Ang hiraaaaaap. It has been a true test of self-control! 
We got our hands dirty and had jumbo lobsters for merienda! Sarap!

And more sweets at Fat Witch Bakery–known for their ooey gooey brownies!
After Chelsea Market, we walked to The Highline. “The High Line is a public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It is owned by the City of New York, and maintained and operated by Friends of the High Line.” You can visit their website for more details.
We decided to do some fashion blogger poses in NYC—
Patrick’s leaf afro won BEST PICTURE of the Day! Hehehe! 
And I’m wearing my glitzy ALDO lace up shoes here 🙂
Our token Times Square couple shot.
Wicked was absolutely WICKED!!! Perhaps, the BEST musical I’ve ever seen!!!

  1. The Highline is just lovely in Spring! Last time we went there, it was also beautifully covered with greens and blooming flowers. You should definitely try Shake Shack too. Moreover, Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center is A MUST! =D Enjoy NY!

  2. While looking at your pictures, I began to sing at the back of my head:

    “In New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
    There’s nothing you can’t do, now you’re in New York
    These streets will make you feel brand new
    Big lights will inspire you, let’s hear it for New York
    New York, New York”
