Hi Beautifuls! So I’m finally back home after spending a couple of days in New York City. It was such an amazing experience but I missed my bed, my home, my BATHROOM! Hahaa does that happen to anybody else? This was my first time going to the city in the summer, the subway was NO. JOKE. Even though I spent most of my days at my internship, I wanted to share some of the things we got to do during our down time.
P.S. I did an internship with a nonprofit organization called myFace. If you’d like to know more about it and my experience with doing an internship in New York, leave me a comment below! And tell me what you love to do when in New York. Love you guys!
Seaglass Carousel – This was the cutest thing ever. Alex surprised me by taking me here one night after dinner. It’s a one of a kind experience at The Battery Park. The carousel is like no ordinary carousel with 30 fiberglass aquatic fish that illuminate during the ride. The ride will only cost you $5 per person so it’s totally worth the trip.
Rooftop 93 – So I had never been to a rooftop bar before so when Alex again surprised me, I was blown away by the view and the breathtaking setup the bar had. Atop the Wyndham Garden Hotel, Rooftop 93 takes over the 18th and 19th floor. We first walked into the 18th floor and were automatically greeted by the bar. The space is nicely decorated and pretty spacious. We went during the middle of the week when they had happy hour going on so drinks were half off. We soaked up the view before heading outside to the very roof of the hotel. You guys are going to get sick of me saying this but once we were outside, the view was spectacular. The space outside is a lot smaller than what it was in the 18th floor but it was still enjoyable plus they also have a bar outside. My favorite part about Rooftop 93 was definitely the option to be inside or outside. The 18th floor has floor to ceiling windows but it still provides a great view while also keeping you cool.
Shakespeare in the Park – Again Alex also surprised me with tickets to see A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Central Park (he’s the best). Tickets are free but people line up hours before to snag their tickets. Alex waited for about three hours and was the absolute last person to get tickets to that day’s show. So we were both really blessed and excited to go. The show took place at The Public Theater in Central Park and they were so ready and elaborate with concession stands selling wine, drinks, and light bites.
The show was great too! It was a little hot but that didn’t take away from the amazing performance the cast put on. And I have to admit, I’m horrible at understanding Shakespeare so there were a few parts of the play I didn’t understand. But the experience as a whole was great. Did I mention Phylicia Rashad aka Clair Huxtable starred in A Midsummer Night’s Dream? It was pretty cool.
Miami is also having their version of Shakespeare in the Park beginning January 2018. For more, click here.
