My last full day in NYC proved to be very emotional, but it was the best, most-fulfilling one of the entire weekend. After a jolly Saturday, Alex and I headed back to the Financial District for The National September 11 Memorial Museum. Knowing full well that I was going to cry, I wore my most tear-absorbent […]

After a fabulous Friday in New York City, Alex and I made our way south from her apartment in the Upper East Side to the Financial District. Our first stop was the Brooklyn Bridge.
