These streets will make you feel brand new...

I spent Wed-Thur in NYC this week visiting one of my besties, Katie. She lives in Manhattan and likes seeing live music almost as much as I do, so sometimes I train-it-up to the city to see a show with her and stay over for a quick visit. The train from Harrisburg got in to Penn Station around 3:30pm. Normally, having 3 hours to kill in New York until Katie’s done with work would be fabulous, but it was a cold, semi-rainy day PLUS my stupid broken foot has been acting up so I didn’t really plan on doing anything special. After some quick window shopping, I parked it in Herald Squre just outside of Macy’s and did a TON of people watching and reading. (Currently reading Jay-Z’s autobiography “Decoded”, very appropriate for NY). After meeting up with Katie we stopped back at her apartment, had a quick dinner at her favorite diner and then headed to The Bowery Ballroom to see We Are Augustines open for The Boxer Rebellion. The show was decent- a little under whelmed by Boxer Rebellion, but I had fun hanging out with a great friend. I stayed over, snuggling with her cat on the comfy couch all night. Overall it was a lovely little trip.

I forgot my camera (boooooo- major fail) so these are just a few photos from my phone. Sorry for the poor quality!

If you haven't heard of them before, The Boxer Rebellion and We Are Augustines are both worth a listen.
