Real puffy eyes to start off the week. This weekend we’re headed of to a mini-trip to New York, and I can’t focus on anything else!

“Why do you only wear grey?” Good question.

Untitled
We really wanted to get to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, but they closed at 6. There was over an hour of traffic to get from JFK Airport to where we were staying. So we decided to walk, explore the Highline, and then head over to Brooklyn (since the museum closed at 10!)

Untitled
Untitled
A view of the side of the New Whitney!

Untitled
Delightful umbrellas

Untitled
Untitled
The Highline is a converted elevated railway that once was used by trains that connected parts of Manhattan North to South. It opened to the public as a park in 2014!


A little map of the Highline, you can see this stretch is a little over a mile.

Storage that is kept in a public-facing part of the museum, people can actually use these objects for study, but it’s also a way to show a behind-the-scenes look into museum functions. Coool!

Went for some late night wine and pasta, that felt very New York. It’s at a little place called Malatesta Trattoria, it’s cash only, and look at their no-frills website. You know it’s good. Try the mussels too.

Untitled
Found this pinball place where you pay by the hour

Untitled
If only they had SVU pinball

Untitled
Totally different vibe than the glitzy expensive barcades in Los Angeles. Just a place to nerd out about pinball.

Untitled
It was forecasted to thunderstorm all weekend, but this evening was the first and only rainy time.

Untitled
Beautiful day the next morning!

Untitled

A visit to the Cooper Hewitt! (Design museum of the Smithsonian) Was eager to try out their new pen technology. On one side you can draw and design and interact with the touch tables, and on the other you can touch the pen to a wall label and “collect” objects to a personalized gallery online.

Untitled
Untitled
I loved that you could search the collection by drawing a shape. Here’s what it pulled up when my name was written

Objects grouped by color!

Create your own wallpaper and project it room, I tried to make the famous portland airport carpet (PDX Carpet) with the limited colors

My one critique of NYC is the lack of spicy chip options. Where are all the hot cheetos? They only carry regular hot cheeto crunchy…*sad*
