New York never disappoints (never ever!) and this particular trip was no exception. I only wish that we had more time to spend in the city since it was far too short! Even so, we were able to pack in lots of our favorite NYC activities, including shopping in Soho, strolling the High Line, seeing a show at the Bowery Ballroom (Phosphorescent!), and eating all day long. And luckily, we were able to do all of it in warm, sunny weather. Thanks for making it real easy on us California kids, New York.

We stayed at the Ace Hotel (again!) and I love that it’s both centrally located and close to a subway station. It also manages to be cozy, lively, and beautifully understated – a total high/low mix of perfection. Plus, there’s always something fun going on in the lobby every night.

Tomorrow, I’ll share my photos from Brooklyn. I’ve been to Brooklyn before but this time, I completely fell in love with it. It’s just oozing with charm! Then on Wednesday, I’ll share all of the restaurants and shops in both NYC and Brooklyn that we visited. It’s quite a hefty list for 2.5 days in the city, which makes me think that we probably spent far too much money on food and souvenirs. But…you only live once?
