Ohio Girls Take NYC

               

My two best friends from Ohio visited me in New York City this weekend. Since they came on Friday afternoon and left Sunday morning, we only had one full day together. We woke up at 7:30 a.m. to pack as much sightseeing as we could into our schedule, visiting Battery Park, Ground Zero, the financial district, Little Italy, SoHo, Chinatown, Central Park, Times Square, Bryant Park and the Empire State Building. The day wasn't complete without miles of walking, a few subway mishaps (stupid construction) and a lost, but eventually found, cell phone. We rounded out the trip by seeing Newsies on Broadway, scoring some seats in the first row of the balcony. The musical was absolutely amazing! We stayed after to meet the cast and get autographs and selfies, and sang the catchy Newsies soundtrack for the rest of the night. A girls' weekend was just what I needed.

We have a bit of an obsession with Daniel Radcliffe
Baked by Melissa shops are everywhere in NYC, and I finally got to try the amazing mini cupcakes

Starbucks on the subway! Construction on the tracks got us lost in Brooklyn
I've never seen Times Square so crowded
