Your Flight Has Landed; Welcome to New York!

Hey guys!

I wanted to tell you about my trip to NYC and all the places I went, and my purpose for going there! New York City has been that one place to me that has always interested me. I decided I wanted to look at schools out there, for Fashion Design and Journalism.

So my mom and I packed up our backpack; yup. you heard me backpacks. Saying we packed light was an understatement, we barely brought anything. I kind of liked it though, not so much to worry about. We got our tickets and we were outta MN faster than you could say Minneapolis!

The schools I checked out were:

  • Pratt Institute of Art– I fell in love with this school, It was all enclosed and the campus was beautiful. It was in Brooklyn, so you weren’t in the city, but still had all the benefits that the city offers just a subway ride away.
  • Parsons School of Design– This school was breathetaking, it was so uniquely designed, I felt so inspired. It was in the center of Midtown, and if you have never been there, it is crazy… all the time. You were directly in the city, so there were some postives and negatives, but mostly postives.

We left on October 15th, it was a friday, we got in NY at 10 am. Went straight to Pratt’s tour and then made our way into the city for Parson’s tour, all-in-all, I fell in love with NYC right away.

After the busy day, my mom and I both crashed, we got some food at the restuarant connected to our hotel, which was the 48LEX, it was amazing! The breakfasts’ were a little boring, but you really did not have to eat there if you did not want too. The rooms were spacious and super modern. The staff was kind and accomadating!

The second day we got up and got ready for our day in SOHO!!

We went to everywhere! Brandy Melville, Micheal Kors, Chanel, Kate Spade, and Vintage Twin Pop-up shop! We then walked a few blocks to the Tribecca area to go the Black Tap, If you have not heard of this place PLEASE CHECK THEIR INSTAGRAM! It will honestly bless your day, but it will make you super hungry …soo….

After we ate we shopped a little bit more then started heading back to the hotel. On our way we stumbled upon Grand Central Terminal which was just breathetaking, something you have to see! We saw street performers outside which was so cool! When we got to the hotel we were offically tired, it was confirmed.

We walked to get chinese from this little buffet place, then took it back our hotel room. We finished our second day in NYC eating chinese on our bed and watching Modern Family.

I dreaded this day…. but it was inevitably… sadly.

Our last day in the place I had fallen in love with. We walked to central park and spent most of our day just looking around and seeing places. However, I did get a Chanel bag, I was so happy, I still an shocked! I then got some things at Zara. We made our way to Rockafeller Center, which was so fun! Then it was time to go :(.

Our Uber was late.. but we got to the aitport with plenty of time… we thought…. we almost missed our flight (ughhhhh, so much stress). We got back to MN at about 8:30pm and I had to then return back to reality of a college student; with an essay due the next day.

XOXO,

G.
