Since we had a large group, we already decided that we would be relaxed in our plans for the weekend and not try to do everything all together. Making decisions among 9 women can be a little tricky. Some wanted to do more museums, some wanted to eat at certain restaurants, others had friends in NYC they wanted to meet up with. Our group Saturday morning consisted of those going for coffee, some to the Brooklyn Flea Market, and Elissa headed off to the museums (where Lauren, Liz, and Caroline joined her).
The downside to this plan was that since there really wasn’t a plan, it was hard to know who to meet where or when. Lauren and Caroline headed off to get coffee together. Not being a coffee drinker, I opted to make my way towards the Brooklyn market to meet up with those girls. We were staying at the New Yorker hotel, right next to Penn Station, so I got subway directions and headed off. Long story short, I got off way too early on the stops, and found myself in Chinatown (not in Brooklyn, as I thought). I walked and walked and walked before realizing my error. It was fine, and my own little adventure and eventually I hopped on another subway line to Brooklyn and met up with the Abby, Leah and Dana at Junior’s diner where they had stopped for food. The cheesecake was to die for! 🙂
Next we started walking towards the Brooklyn Bridge to walk across it, and along the way decided to rent bikes for the day and bike across instead. Great idea! The city views from the Brooklyn Bridge are amazing!! So glad I didn’t miss this! While we biked and explored, the other girls went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
We all met back up at the hotel to get cleaned up and ready for our night out on the town celebrating one of our bachelorettes, Caroline! More to come…
