Hi, guys, Emma here again. :) I'm back to hosting Random Fridays, but I'd like to say a big thank you to Sarah for taking over for 3 weeks.  My life has been so crazy lately that I knew I couldn't run the weekly posts by myself.  Now let's get into this week's post.



I've only been to New York City once, back in 2008.  We went with our friends from Virginia (their daughter has been my BFF since we were toddlers), and we were there for a whole week.  We hit all the tourist destinations, visited museums, saw Mary Poppins on Broadway, and took a cruise around the island.

The next time I go, I'd love to explore the New York book world - visit the public library, stop at as many bookstores as I can, and get pictures of the various publishers.

But my favorite place when we visited in 2008 was Central Park:




(I'm pretty sure we got lost in the park, fyi.)

The Metropolitan Museum of Art was amazing.  I loved Mary Poppins and Times Square.  Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty are must-sees.

So have you ever been to NYC?  Do you hope to go some day?  Or do you just have some cool pictures you found on the Internet to share?  I can't wait to see other Random Friday posts!

  1. I now need to go to NYC and spend an entire day in Central Park. Possibly two days. It looks like a lovely place to wander around, get lost, and write/read for hours. I mean, I want to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island and all the other places like that. But Central Park just became a lot more interesting.

  3. Agh! I've always wanted to go to NYC! I went on the very outskirts of the state since we went to Canada and had to drive back. But *sigh* Love the pictures!
