A Parisian Family in NYC…Next Stop? Paris 2015!

By Posted on 2 min read 304 views

















few weeks ago my step family from Paris arrived in town and took New York by storm. Well ok that may be a wee bit of an exaggeration but they ( and I ) toured New York like happy tourists. The sun was shining, the skies were blue, and the weather could not have been more corporative. We walked everywhere! In fact one day we walked from 34th street and 7th avenue to 92nd street and fifth Avenue. Whew! We cut across through Bryant Park,  then up fifth avenue, strolled north through Central Park and visited the MET and the Guggenheim. We lunched at the waters edge in Central Park. Stood in awe at the grand Egyptian exhibit at The MET and walked in circles at the Guggenheim. And of course we shopped. I mean how can one walk up fifth avenue and not shop? We ended our day at the Roof Garden and Martini bar at The MET. I must say they were quite impressed with this. And I gave myself a much deserved pat on the back. And for my New York readers—you must stop by this rooftop cafe. They serve wine and beer, light snack foods and of course martinis. The floor is covered in faux grass which encourages impromptu picnics and of course there is the panoramic stunning views over looking the park. A truly wonderful way to spend a summer evening in New York.

We also hit the beach, took some day trips out east and took a tour of Soho  as well. It was wonderful visit and I wished they could have stayed longer. What comes next? Well I hope to be the one who travels across the pond. I have Paris in my sites…summer 2015—Paris or bust!

    Oh how fun, I love it when family visits because then you get to experience NYC like a tourist and do all the stuff that you normally would never do. That was some serious walking girl. I’ve been to the MET rooftop, it’s so stunning. And you DEF should make Paris 2015 happen!

    I’ve never been to New York but have always wanted to! You are lucky! Also, I just wanted to say that I really like your blog! I’m glad that I found it! It would be nice if you could stop by my blog sometime too (I’m from England) as I post my outfits, personal style, likes, new purchases and much more 🙂 🙂

    How nice, even if I live here I love to go around the city and some how sometimes you feel like a tourist too, the city is constantly changing and this is one of the reason I love it so much.
    Oh Paris next year! I am sure you will love it. I wish I could go back now, it is magical.
    So, NYFW is here!!! I will be there sunday and saturday all day so let me know what’s best for you! So excited to meet you.

    These are great pictures! It is so nice that your family was able to come visit from Paris. I would love to go to Paris some day too. I don’t it’s in the cards for me to make in 2015 though. Although my sister Tracy, and I have started saving for our future Paris trip! This November we will be in NYC, any tips or suggestions?

    What a lovely visit you must have had! And your pictures encapsulate the best little nuggets of NYC. I am embarrassed to say that I didn’t know The MET had a rooftop cafe and I am going to make that a must on my next city trip. Great post!
