In April I had to opportunity to take a trip to New York & Boston. Work was a little slow that week so I decided to take the opportunity to fly out to New York & Boston. I ended up getting a Return Ticket from YYC directly into JFK for only $332 with WestJet in Economy Plus.
I spent a total of two days in New York. For some reason I had a huge difficulty sleeping in the AirBNB I was staying at because it was so warm, so I had an early start each day, which allowed me to see a lot. Some highlights of New York were visiting the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the finance District, Chinatown, Lower Manhattan, Brooklyn and Brooklyn Bridge, East Village, Harlem, and The High Line. I didn’t have the opportunity to go on top of any of the towers there as I didn’t book the tickets enough in advance. When I was there I even got to meetup with the sister and husband of a friend that I used to work with at a previous employer. We had so much delicious food including Vietnamese and Pizza, as well as some of the best IPA’s I’ve ever had in my life. The east coast definitely knows how to make a great IPA!
I’ve included some pictures of my New York trip below. Check back soon for Part 2!
