nyc part 1: lots of pictures here and to come...

(we took a tonne of pictures-about 350-so i will try to keep it to a minimum haha but it's hard! and also a lot of random videos, which dylan will put something together). so, first off, we stayed in Chelsea-like i mentioned before. the place was called 'a garden in chelsea' and it was just a little b&b on the bottom floor of a brownstone, and we had our own private garden to ourselves too. the location was perfect (west 22 between 9th and 10th), with everything we wanted right at our fingertips. we loved this.after we got to the place around 8am, we were so hungry that we didn't even change, just brushed our teeth and went to get breakfast. however, we ended up wandering around a bit after we ate. we went and took a walk along the highline, went to a bookstore or two, got a red velvet cupcake at billy's bakery (yummy), got some red wine, sparkling white wine and OJ for mimosas, and checked out the chelsea market (also loved this, very similar to the distillery district here in toronto). this was all before 11am i think. then we went back and got changed for the day and went right back out.inside the cute little bakery.we enjoyed a little wine in the garden, then went for lunch @ trailer park lounge-seriously good burgers!!these margaritas were way strong! (and only $4)after lunch/dinner was a few more book stores and walking around. we went back to our room and had about an hour and a half nap-it was great. then around 830-9, we decided to go to the strand bookstore. wow is all i can say about that place; it was HUGE, with an endless supply of books (18 miles of books to be exact). very impressive.well, that's day 1 for ya. i'll be back with more tomorrow ;)
