Central Park & last day in NYC.

Are you sick of my New York photos yet? Last one...for now.

The beautiful trees had me falling more & more in love with NYC.

Home to Steve Jobs, Steve Martin, Bono, and Donna Karan.

Early Sunday morning, I ventured out for a 40 minute run. I ran along Park Avenue and then headed over to 5th avenue along Central Park. I love running through Chicago, but there is nothing like running through NYC. After my run, we headed to Soho, Chinatown, and Greenwich Village. We shopped at Topshop & Kate's Paperie, had lunch at Balthazar, and enjoyed walking the streets of NYC, which was what I loved most.

Soho was very quaint with a big city feel. I loved it.

The most charming little cafes.

And street vendors.

And cobblestone streets.

I still cannot believe I finally made it to New York. It felt nice to come back to Chicago, but I miss NYC. There is a longing for the day when I can walk those streets again.

A big thank you to my friend Jill who invited me on this trip!

  1. Such great shots! I'd love to visit there in the Fall sometime. Unfortunately, my May visit was unseasonably cold. It was kind of a bummer!

  4. I bought the 18-135 and used it the entire trip. It was so nice being able to zoom! Not the most incredible lens, but definitely good enough for now.

  7. No, I could never get tired of New York pictures. The cobblestone streets of the meat packing district are my favorite. Ahh I'm meant to live in New York. There's really nothing quite like it.
