All of it. You win everything.
I didn’t expect to like you all that much. I like trees and grass and I kinda sorta have this thing about personal space. Crowds are not my favorite. And there’s this reputation that your people are rude. Yes, I realize that these are terribly judgmental statements … I’m being honest about my preconceptions.
You can imagine my surprise when I found my family falling in love with you. Hard.
All of us.
On day 1, Mayhem discovered Pie Face. She ate her weight in pie in three and a half days. Guaranteed. Her picks: pumpkin was her hands down favorite, lemon was a close second and apple crumb rounded out her top three. I’m not exaggerating when I tell you she ate pie everyday. At least twice a day. Which is why we won’t be moving to your city any time soon 😉
Hoofing it to see the sights was not something I realized would be so easy to do. But hoof it we did. We walked and walked and walked all over and enjoyed every second of it. Feeling safe the entire time. Something I wouldn’t be able to say about my own hometown.
And then we hoofed it some more. Carrying pie along with us.
Not even kind of kidding.
We found cultural icons flanking every path we walked.
And at the end of the day, there was pizza. Delicious, Patsy’s pizza.
There is SO much more for me to say about New York. Other things we did, other sights we saw and how very much we enjoyed the people. But for now, let’s leave it at New York – 1, Angie’s
preMISconceptions – 0.
You win, Big Apple.
