Week One in Manhattan

I got to Manhattan around a week and a half ago for a summer program. The biggest and hardest adjustment was (and well... still is) traveling. I have a huge reliance on trip planner apps, but slowly and surely I'm figuring out how to read a subway map! There's never a shortage of things to see here, and I know I'm only going to be able to get to 0.5% of it while here. If I'm lucky. Here's a roundup of some of the wonderful things I've been experiencing here so far. 

 I walk past this beaut in awe almost every night.

 Connor and I had an amazing first day in the city! We got to see a Broadway show, rented a studio and practiced for a couple hours, and then had an amazing dinner and dessert. The dinner isn't pictured, but check out Foragers Table in Chelsea if you're looking for something upscale, fresh, and delicious!

 The line for Dō, Cookie Dough Confections was shut off by the time we arrived, so we headed to Frost Factory instead. I'm so glad we did! It was absolutely delicious, and very light. They had vegan options as well!

 Applejack Diner, while it can be expensive, is one of my favorite spots in the city so far! If you find yourself near Columbus Circle at night, you can grab a seat outside under their awning...and a massive slice of pie.
