This trip to New York felt easy and great. Much like our Mexico City trip, we did very little planning. We returned to places we loved, discovered spots we'd never heard of, and purposely/unexpectedly met up with friends.

Although my time in New York was limited to a summer and a few short trips, I feel more comfortable there than I ever did in Montreal (where I lived for 3 years). Something about all the characters in NYC suddenly makes you feel very normal.

Once confused about the pairing of chicken and waffles, it's now commonplace and something we'll seek out. If you go to Cafeteria on a warm day, you can sit outside and people watch.

While waiting for our table, we decided to wander around and found The Rubin Museum. If you're planning on visiting, it's free on Friday evenings.  The restaurant next to the gift shop smelled delicious, so pop in there and report back, okay?

the doughnut plant

I was lamenting that we wouldn't be able to go to The Doughnut Plant on this trip because it was so far away. Moments later, we serendipitously walked by their newish location in Chelsea. This place has forever ruined regular doughnuts for me.

We looked into Airbnb and Roomorama accommodations for this trip, but they were pricey compared to our Hotwire deal for King & Grove (now called Martha Washington ?!) Part of it was under renovation, so the cost was reduced and it was in the perfect location for our short trip. It was also near the Museum of Sex which we peeked into but ended up wasting all our time at the Empire State Building... I can't wait to go back.
