Empire State of Mind

I didn't think I'd ever get a chance to go back to New York City, but I did. Sure, it was because of work but whatever reasons there were, I'm just glad I was able to return to the city that never sleep after 8 years. The last time I went, I was with jamypye and we spent 22 days in the city with my uncle and then my aunt.

This time around, I was there for a conference for 4 days and the rest of the time, I spent with my uncles in Brooklyn, taking trips into the city during the day. It was really fun, too because I got to see old office mate, and current grad student at Pratt, Reggie. ANDDDDDDD, I finally got to meet and hang with starryeyedmagic -- with our aborted attempt at getting into the Game of Thrones exhibition and just generally having a laugh together.

Thanks to the first trip, I was able to skip all the usual tourist places, but that didn't stop me from getting a guide book and doing all the usual stuff. I realize I really do prefer to travel alone, though I don't mind meeting up and hanging out with friends every once in a while. I can't wait to be back there. Hopefully it won't take another 8 years.

I'm not sure when I'll ever get around to posting all my photo from this trip, but for now, these snapshots pretty much cover the crazy and surprising trip that was.
