Which school did she like the best? Pratt...
Pratt is located in the heart of Brooklyn. It is the only fashion and design school that has a campus with dorm rooms. Most of the fashion and design schools in NYC seem to have residential housing, which is fine but the girl actually like the dorm rooms right on the campus grounds.
Not only did she like the dorms, she liked the grounds; especially their sculpture park. She also enjoyed walking through the main dining area, the Steam Plant, and the fashion hall where should could possibly be taking classes at.
Here are just some of the pics from this visit....
We also had a little fun...doing some of the non-touristy things. Like hanging out with my cousin CL whom I haven't seen in like 6 years or so. He's grown up now, and so handsome! During the summer months, he teaches in The Hamptons and decided to come meet us at Penn Station. From there we were everywhere in NYC!
But here are just some memories I'm sharing with you...
Atlas -- Rockefeller Center
Can you believe this sign?
Byrant Park at night.
Our room...no double beds...smh! That's ok, we love staying at The Doubletree Metropolitan (Lexington). We never stay anywhere else. And the cookies are the best!
I still have money on my Metro Card. But I will be back!
Time Square -- it looks gloomy but it was actually sunny the whole time we were there.
And here are just some photos from the street festival on Madison Ave.
Again, we did have fun. If you follow me on Instagram, then you would have seen even more photos of places where we had eaten, and other things.
I do love going to NYC but I can't stand the cigarette smoking and the smells. Just something I'm obviously not use to. The girl didn't seem to mind it at all. Also, there are waaay too many people/tourist in Manhattan! Good lawd...and I never seem to understand the point of rushing/racing to the corner. People were passing us up only to meet us at the corner...smh. But oh well, it's still a great place to visit. The shopping is the best!
Some of the stores I wish they would bring to Atlanta are Joe Fresh, Uniqlo, and Century21. My favorite places to eat there are Juniors (in Grand Central Station), Uncle Jack's Steakhouse, and Cafe Metro. And if you bank with Chase, they have one on every corner. Considering I love me some Starbucks...they also have one of those on every corner. Boom!
It wasn't our first time and definitely won't be our last. You never know, the girl may be going to school there soon.
