Concrete Jungle

This past Saturday I added to my list of summer day trips and ventured off to one of my favorite places: New York City. I often take for granted that I have such a beautiful city that is filled with so much culture and life within driving distance. One of my goals of the summer is to stop doing that.

To celebrate my brother turning 23, we spent almost a full 24 hours there (and walked about 13 miles). Personally, my favorite part about going to the city is not going to see attractions but rather just walking around and enjoying the atmosphere. There’s something about the busy streets, tall buildings and endless amount of people that gives me a vibe that anything is possible. We did exactly that: explored and took plenty of photos of everything and everything the city has to offer.

Don’t worry, I still like you at 23.

Most of our time was spent in Brooklyn, but we ended up venturing across practically the entire city on the hunt for something specific. We took the Port Imperial/Weehawken Ferry in which just added to the beauty of the day. Hopefully this is just the first of many city trips within the coming months.

Worth the Mention:

Stout NYC: We stopped in for lunch on a wimp and I was definitely not disappointed. I ordered their grilled chicken sandwich which did not disappoint with its applewood smoked bacon, Gouda cheese, and green apple slices. I would definitely go back here again.

FEED: The cold brew mocha coffee that I got was to die for; but that isn’t what has me sold on this place. The atmosphere is that of the perfect coffee shop and the friendliness of the girl who took my order really left a great impression on me. A little kindness goes a long way. If good coffee and a friendly face isn’t enough to have you sold, every item sold at FEED helps provide meals to end hunger. Not only can you purchase coffee and food, but you can also grab yourself a cute tote or mug to help make an impact. I can’t stress enough how amazing it is that a coffee shop like this exists and I encourage you to check it out and help make a difference yourself if you get the chance.
