First thing we did was a first for all of us: a visit to Dad's office. Pretty great, and the view from his window is mind-blowing! This is one of the most exciting things I was able to photograph. It's pretty spectacular, located in 2 Penn Plaza: right above Penn Station and Madison Square Garden.
We went to some GREAT interior design venues: ABC Carpet and Home on the recommendation from Design*Sponge's Grace Bonney and Bobby Berk Home because I am a huge fan of his work! His outdoor selections are simply amazing, and I fell in love with his Atwood selections. Spectacular! (And very cool to "talk" with Bobby Berk via Twitter while in his store). We went to a few other shops and had the opportunity to window shop, which made the day inspirational.
We decided to hold off on Rockafeller Center and Times Square until night, so we got to see the impact of the lights and the attractions more than when I had been during the day. My brother asked a NYPD officer if he could climb the tree... because that's what we do in Minnesota.
Today, we went to visit Empire Divers: my dad's new dive shop, where he is hoping to get his instructor certification this year. I'm very excited for him! Great guys, and I hope they can get active with Project Aware in the future.
We went through the park to get to the American Museum of Natural History. Super cool, but a lot of the big exhibits were closed for an event. The new planetarium was pretty cool, and I"m excited to put up a few pictures here too. My favorite picture was definitely from here.
Tonight, we went to Lincoln Center and Union Square. Very cool at night to get a chance to see some of the archetecture and design. Another few inspiring things to see here.
There is a whole lot more that we saw and that we did, but I'll definitely post more when I put a few pictures in, I just knew I'd been neglecting to post this week!
