For my 29th birthday I mentioned to Frankie that I really wanted to get out of Providence. Luckily for us, my bday coincided with our friend’s annual holiday party in Queens this year! We decided to spend a few extra days exploring Brooklyn, and NYC. We went ice skating in Bryant Park, checked out art at the Whitney (which I had never been to) played pool and ate some bomb ramen, all in all it was an amazing weekend. As overwhelming as NYC can be, the hustle of city is pretty magical and inspiring.
