"I want to be part of it New York, New York"

Can not believe our trip to New York City is already over! Seems like just yesterday I was counting down the days until we took off for the Big Apple. We were there for 3 days and managed to make the most of our time by sweeping the island of Manhattan top to bottom. Here is a recap of Day 01 events and happenings! Day 02 and 03 to follow soon.

Day 01: Travel  l Times Square  l  Fifth Avenue Shopping  l  Burger Heaven  l Rockefeller Center  l Central Park  l  The Plaza Hotel  l  Carmine's

We got to stay just a couple of blocks west of Times Square  . SO many people were in the city this weekend for Black Friday sales  , Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade,   the lighting of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, and just to experience New York City at Christmastime (the best!).

Sweet potato fries, pickles, and my first turkey burger, this place was fantastic! One of the first stops in NYC was food - traveling makes you hungry!

Ice skating at Rockefeller Center is a must! The massive Christmas tree was being prepped for its lighting ceremony.

Central Park is always my favorite part of visiting New York. If it weren't for the freezing temperatures we   would've explored further, but   nonetheless we   managed to snap a few pictures before turning around to head back. [Above:  Sheep Meadow]

The Plaza Hotel sits at the South edge of Central Park  . So beautiful!

Oh Bergdorfs. This   magical place has   the most beautiful window displays featuring the likes of Valentino, Ralph Lauren, and Alexander McQueen.

Day 01 was probably my favorite day in the city. New York welcomed us with open arms and plenty to explore.
