Long Island City

This past weekend, we were in the city with no plans on Saturday night. Although I love nothing more than a night in, we decided to go on a field trip to Long Island City, where I had not been in years. And HOLY COW — it is SOOOOOOOOOOO different and a city in itself (hence the name). It was super easy to get to in the car (just over the 59th street bridge) and fun to explore a new part of our backyard. I can’t wait to go back there and eat at different restaurants, see the sights, and experience a different part of our eclectic city.


Trip over the bridge with the iconic sign “Silver Cup”

The pier is POPPING! So many people watching the sunset, eating from the food trucks, playing, talking….

and what a view the pier had!

We ate outside at a restaurant “American Brass” — it was a great view and excellent food. Not the fastest service, but does any restaurant have good service these days?

We are beginning to look like each other….

chickpea fries and a caesar salad — both delicious.

Ken and his pasta.

The night skyline.

So many cute houses amidst the tall vertical buildings.

My day….


One of the things I love most about living in NYC is that there is so much to explore and see! If anyone has any random, fun, different, must sees, do tell! I love nothing more than a field trip!
