A Few Days in New York City
The best avocado toast. Running into a good friend. A couple bad dates. Hand modeling?
This was my second trip to New York and the second time going solo. I think at this point it seems hard to imagine flying into JFK with people I know ;) It was absolutely FREEZING and for me to say that then you know it's true. It's no wonder then why the flight was so affordable. I used my ride or die, Google Flights, to score a direct round trip flight on Delta for around $350! The trip, the country, the city, the weather, and my mood determines whether or not I use public transportation to get to my accommodations or whether I take the lazy aka convenient but more expensive route which is an uber or taxi. It was raining and on the verge of snowing so I took an uber pool from JFK to Bushwick in Brooklyn. During rush hour the prices are surged but split between myself and the two other passengers it only cost me about $25. Well worth it. (I try to save ubers for moments where I just can't be bothered to finagle public transport: when it's super late, when i've had a lot to drink, really bad weather, and especially when I'm first arriving or departing for the airport. Lugging around luggage on public transport sucks.)
Met up with my friend and coworker Julio who happened to be in NYC on a solo trip of his own. It was so rad our trips overlapped by a couple days and could hang out. We spent the afternoon cruising around SOHO and checking out the shops.
