I always get so sad when it’s the last day of the trip. Everything from packing up the suitcases, checking out of the hotel, to the cab ride to the airport- it’s all so depressing. We spent our morning doing that exact thing, except for taking the cab ride to the airport. Our flight wasn’t until 8pm that evening so we spent the majority of the day with my family!
Before we met up with the family in the city, we took a cab and somehow ended up in China Town… which was interesting to say the least. We walked our way back up to SoHo to find ourselves at this quaint little breakfast spot called Sanctuary T, where we both ordered the most delicious croissant breakfast BLT (seriously, I could have had 3 of these things). We then walked through TriBeca to meet up with my family (parents, lil sis, uncle, and aunt) at the 9/11 Memorial Museum.
We almost skipped out on the 9/11 Memorial Museum, but I’m so glad we didn’t, because it was amazing. Being in the museum takes you back to that horrific day, but it’s something that will always be remembered. The fountains they built where the Twin Towers used to stand is nothing like you’ve ever seen before. The museum was built with so much thought put into it- it’s something that I believe everyone should experience when they are in NYC.
After we spent about 2 hours in the Memorial Museum, we walked down to South Street Sea Port to have some lunch. South Street Sea Port recently got an upgrade and developed a gathering space with live music, shops, and restaurants (even food trucks)! Once we had lunch, we said our goodbyes to my family and grabbed a cab to JFK to beat traffic.
To describe our trip to New York in one word, it would be spectacular. Cannot wait to be back. Thank you again for all of you for following along and leaving all of the sweet comments… it means a lot.
