I’m back from New York! Overall, my New York City experience was probably very different from what a typical tourist experience would be like since my group didn’t spend much time in the tourist-y parts of Manhattan and instead spent every day in Brooklyn, but we did have one free day to explore the city on our own and we packed in as much sightseeing as possible.
I’ll share more about why I went to New York in my next post, but for now, here’s how we spent our free day (with lots of free things to do in NYC!) and how we somehow managed to only spend money on food and Subway passes.
I was happy we got to go to this huge toy store since I’ve heard it’s closing soon. They have lots of fun toys, a big candy bar, huge stuffed animals, and a floor-size piano that you can play with your feet.If only Patrick the Pup hadn’t cost $500…I’m usually not much of a selfie girl, but they had Boo (“the world’s cutest dog”) slippers! So adorable.You know a dog is cute when…a 25-second video of him just sitting there licking his lips gets 9 million views on Youtube.

Do you think you’re more of a big city or small town type of person? I loved visiting NYC but my preference would definitely be a smaller city to live longterm.
I’d have to argue that my dog is cuter…
