LIFE // gotham part ii

Why does New York City have so many names? There's like fifty of them. Actually, there's 98. Wow. 98 names. How does anyone keep track of this? If someone says "I'm going to the Frog and Toe" I think what's that, a pub?
Whatever you want to call it, I am no longer there. In fact, I am typing this from my nice comfy bed back in boring old Maine.

Sunday's vlog:

So on Saturday, after we saw War Horse (which was THE most amazing play I have ever seen, I highly recommend it if you have a chance to go), we went home and crashed in the hotel — nothing too exciting. The next morning we went out semi-early (I had to take a shower, then realized there was no conditioner. So I used lotion instead. That's why my hair is so... frizzy) and had breakfast at the Hungarian Pastry Shop (yes, I called it the Hungarian Café in the video, I messed up).

We went to the Palm Sunday service at Saint John the Devine — that is one reallyreallyreally big church, y'all — and then wandered the campuses of Columbia and Barnard. I'm a little bit in love but my hopes aren't towering to get into a college that good. After all that we went to a nice museum exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt, and strolled through Central Park.

In the evening, we went to a very neat read-through of a new musical — very cool — at the Guggenheim and finished up with fantastic Middle Eastern food.


Monday, our final day, was a shopping-and-strolling kind of day. We went to several stores — including *squeal* Anthropologie and this crazy hole-in-the-wall vintage store where you got a discount if you knew what the third (?) full moon of spring is called (find out here), which was totally weird and awesome — and I promptly forgot the name of the store. I was proud to only spend $35 while in the Big Apple: $30 for my Anthro blouse (photos soon!) and $5 for a scarf for my friend at the crazy-amazing vintage store. We also traveled the High Line, which is very neat.

Anyway. Now I'm back in normal vacation mode (read: vegetable on the couch). Sigh.
