The day we took Romeo, it was sunny and 60 degrees outside! We made a quick stop at Levain, the best cookie shop in the city, and then walked around Central Park. Romeo does this interesting thing when he likes something or the environment he’s in, he  stops and lays down. I know weird, but he did it several times in NYC so I’m guessing he had a good time. We stood in line so he could play the “Big” piano at FAO Schwarz. They were only allowing each child a few minutes as the store was packed during the holiday season. Romeo absolutely loved it of course, laid down on it and even did what we call “The Move” – his signature dance move. The entire store knew when his time at the piano was up because he literally screamed as we made our way out of the store. I couldn’t get him to stop so my last resort was to whisper in his ear “okay, more piano” knowing that was a bit of a lie and that we were making a bee line for the front door. Thank God he bought it! Little white lies are okay, right?

When we visited Brooklyn we left the little guy at home! We stopped by Mast Brothers and did some chocolate tasting. The truffles were out of this world. We also shopped some adorable boutiques and stuffed ourselves with Shake Shack… I’m a fan.

    These photos are gorgeous! One of my favorite things about living in Connecticut is the convenient hour and a half train ride to NYC. Brooklyn has a little piece of my heart, too. All those brownstones + artsy corner galleries. Love it all.

      Thanks Sarah! You’re so lucky you have the convenience of a quick train ride into the city! We love visiting and I agree about Brooklyn 🙂

    Looks like you had fun! And spectacular weather. We’re headed to NYC at the end of the month. Any other ‘must try’ places? I’m adding the ones you mentioned to my list.

      Erin! How exciting! There are so many amazing places in NYC… I would say the Levain for sure, Magnolia Bakery and Baked in Brooklyn. We loved the Tippler in the Meat Packing District.. it’s a basement bar. We also enjoyed Buddakan for dinner. Try the Shake Shack for an easy and cheap lunch. There’s an app and site called Eater that’s incredible for finding the top restaurants. Have a wonderful time!! XO

    After reading your post, I put the Shake Shack on my list of places to go for my 1st trip to NYC last week. Needless to say I didn’t get in, the line (near Madison Square Garden) was SOOOO long, too long to wait. I just stared through the window and got a quick pic of the crew and a burger : )
    Maybe next time.
