New York City, NY

 We’ve already had such a great time hanging out with Frank and Kim and chilling on Frank’s boat. It’s in the perfect spot and we love being able to see the city from the cockpit. This morning we all hopped in the car and headed out to breakfast at Brownstone Diner and Pancake Factory at Kim’s recommendation. We didn’t even know it when we were heading there but apparently, this place has been on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives TV show. Their pancakes were incredible with a huge selection of toppings. We all left full and ready to hit the city.

We headed into the city from Jersey City and made our way towards The Highline Park. The Highline is a public park that was created from a salvaged railroad line. A cool park with several city blocks worth of green spaces and lots of graffiti and sculpture art throughout.

We left The Highline and found ourselves in the meatpacking district, a trendier end of town. We walked around a bit and passed by designer stores and expensive restaurants. We decided that we needed to get to a more chill area of town, so we decided to head for The Met. We ended up splitting up from Kim and Frank for a bit so M.E. and I could go explore The Met. We stopped in at the American Museum of Natural History to go to the bathroom, then headed through Central Park to make it to The MET on the opposite side.

M.E.’s friend, Carly, works at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and was kind enough to get us admission to the museum and the special exhibits. M.E. took me around and showed me some of the highlights of the museum. Carly had mentioned to us that there was an exhibit on the rooftop that we should check out so we headed that way. Tomas Saraceno’s Cloud City was the highlight of The Met for me. It was a cool piece of sculpture art that you could climb in and check out the sights. Thanks to Carly for hooking us up with tickets, we had a blast!

We left the MET and decided to take a break on the steps of the museum for a minute. I got some snacks from the street vendors and we hung out for a bit and listened to this weird guy play national anthems on his trombone.

When we were ready to get going again, we headed toward the Metro to catch a subway back to the boat. We ended up getting turned around and made a pit stop in Times Square just for fun. Of course, Times Square was chaotic and we made our way out of the masses of people as quickly as we had gotten there.

We made it back to the boat just in time for drinks and a lobster dinner. The rest of the night was spent relaxing, cooking and having an incredible meal together.
