New York!

So these got a little out of order from our trip but you get the idea. We had an awesome time in NYC! We got to hang out with my cousin Nate (our person tour guide) and his super fun friends. We got to see and things we will probably never get to again so that was extra cool!
We started off our trip arriving late and taking a little our of Times Square, better at night I must say.
We spent the next day at Central Park, had drinks (well some of us) on the roof of The Met with this amazing architectural exhibit. We ate at a little restaurant Shawn has been dreaming about called Shopsins. For extra reference see the documentary "I Like Killing Flies". The food and the man lived up to the hype!

The next day was Brooklyn day! Nate lives in Brooklyn so he took us around to some of his favorite spots. We had a great brunch, went to the coolest flea market, and spent the afternoon at Prospect Park. We had New York pizza for dinner that was amazing after a brief stop at the Brooklyn Bridge.
We spent the next day hanging out with friends eating more great food and ending the night with an incredible improv show at UCB.
Shawn wishes he was still there, it was all a little to much hustle and bustle for me to spend much longer there.
Thanks to my great cuz and his accommodating roommates and friends. What an awesome experience we had!
