NYC on a Beautiful Night

Hey everyone.  Just wanted to share some fun photos from yesterday.  After working all day at The Ink Pad, it was time to have some fun as a "tourist".  Started by heading over to Warby Parker for some new glasses.  After trying on a few styles and asking both stramgers and friends for their advice, I went way out of my comfort zone and settled on these.  

If you need glasses with amazing prices and unbelievable customer service, check them out at!

Then we  walked around the meatpacking area where I found this cool piece on the wall of an old butcher.  

Then we started to walk downtown along The Hudson River path.  Got some really nice photos of the sun setting as well as lower Manhattan and the new Freedom Tower.

Got to the Financial District (cause I got us lost) but took this cool photo of The New York Stock Exchange.

Even though my feet were killing me, I was a trooper and we kept going.  We were heading to Wo Hop, a chinese restaurant that Justin swore was the best in the land.  Well, he was right.  Went to the downstairs one.  The walls were so cool.  Like a giant mixed media project gone awry.  But oh so very cool.


With a full belly and my feet throbbing, we walked through Little Italy to get the subway back to Kim's apartment, where I feel asleep and had the best night's sleep ever!  Going back to Little Italy today to get some cool shots so look for that post soon!

Thanks for stopping by! 

Hugs from NYC -


  1. Looks like a good time was had! Oh, and by the way, Michael...I LOVE the new glasses!

    1. Thanks Bea!! It feels nice to be a tourist in my own town for a change. I "think" I love the new glasses too but will have to get used to them. LOL Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

  2. What a great day you had! Love the mixed media project on the walls at that restaurant. How funny! And yes, your new glasses look good!

    1. Thanks Carol. A great day was had. Lots of fun. Thanks on the glasses. Wonder how long it will take for me to get used to them. LOL

  3. Hi Michael:

    As I told Justin - I can't believe you guys walked from Battery Park to China Town. No wonder you slept good, you wee exhausted. Thanks for sharing those great photos. Manhattan is such a beautiful city with the best restaurants in the world as far as I'm concerned. Also, it's nice to "play tourist" in your own town once in a while, even if it's just to gain knowledge for when friends visit. So glad you are having a great time and yes, the glasses look fantastic on you. Why are they out of your comfort zone? Enjoy the rest of this week.

    1. Thanks for stopping by the blog Grace!! It's funny, when I lived here I did not really take advantage of what this city has to offer. Seeing it as a tourist is a lot of fun. And I love to walk!!! As for the glasses...I usually just use typical "accountant" style glasses. LOL. These are just not me...but they will become me!
