You have to tilt your head alllll the way back to reach the top of this Gothic marvel. St. Patrick’s Cathedral opened over 130 years ago in 1879 and it is truly a work of art.
Follow me to have a look inside this time capsule so carefully juxtaposed with the hustle and bustle of New York City streets. Continue reading “ST. PATRICK’S CATHEDRAL”
Ever the hungry girls in New York City, we made our way to Grand Central Station for a lunch date at The Oyster Bar.

I would like to start off by saying that while tropical locations are popular for girls’ trips, NYC is certainly a competitive choice as well. We had an absolute blast for my friend’s bachelorette weekend and now I’m dying to go back. We went for 3 days and managed to fit in a trip to The Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and a Broadway show. Whew! Needless to say I spent this week catching up on sleep but I’d do it all over again. I got a lot of messages about what we did and if I had any tips for those who are planning their own trips to the Big Apple. Continue reading “5 TIPS FOR VISITING NEW YORK CITY”
