Labor Day in NYC

I spent Labor Day, in NYC! I have not been to the city since Christmas time! I usually go when I get back from school in the spring, but for obvious reasons, I thought it was best not to. Labor Day was my first time back and it was so nice.

I played tour guide on Monday. I showed a new New Yorker the lay of the land.
We started at Grand Central Station and slowly made our way uptown.
We walked to Rockefeller, past Saks, prayed in St. Patrick’s and walked through Central Park. We went to Bethesda Fountain, Bow Bridge and explored some new trails we stumbled upon.
We exited on the Upper West Side by the Museum of Natural History (which just reopened) and grabbed a late lunch outside.

I thought it was going to be a bit more eerie in the city because everyone keeps saying “NYC is dead...” Lemme tell ya, it is certainly not dead nor anywhere close to being extinct. The only thing that is extinct in NY are the dinosaurs in the Museum of Natural History. The city is a little bit quieter, but very alive and well!

My feet and legs are still KILLING me from walking 20,000 steps… I know, I wore the wrong shoes, but I was rushing out of the house.
Thanks to your suggestions on my Instagram stories, I ordered a cute pair of white sneakers for walking.

I loved seeing EVERYONE wearing their masks and socially distancing in the city. My guests were shocked by how many people were wearing their masks and abiding by the rules. 

After lunch we took the subway downtown to Meatpacking to pick up the Highline. There is only one entrance and a couple of exits. It’s free to go, like always, but you have to reserve a time and you are only allowed to walk in one direction in the park.
So, we walked from 12th Street to 30th Street, got off, turned around and walked back to 12th Street hoping to find some ice cream!

But we didn’t find ice cream. Instead, we found gelato at Chelsea Market, which has been moved outside.
I 100% deserved that gelato.

I was exhausted at the end of the day. I hopped on the train home with my feet throbbing. This was the most fun Labor Day I’ve ever had. For the past 4 years I’ve had class on Labor Day, so this was a nice treat.
