Two weeks ago, Mrs. G-LO and I spent the weekend in Manhattan to celebrate a birthday (my 45th) and a wedding anniversary (our 13th). Although this would be our third such trip in three years, we (by “we” I mean Mrs. G-LO) decided to mix things up a bit. In 2010 and 2011 (read about our 2011 trip by clicking here and here), we stayed at a Midtown hotel, and did most of our sightseeing and dining around this very central location. For this year’s trip, “we” decided to stay at a hotel in SoHo. Although this location was not as convenient, it did allow us to explore a few neighborhoods that were new to us, and it enabled me to finally visit a place that I have been meaning to get to for the past couple years, i.e. The Brandy Library in TriBeCa (click here to read a review of this magnificent lounge by our friend The Whisky Woman).
We covered a lot of ground in two days, and managed to make it as far east as Brooklyn and as far north as the Upper East Side. Although I didn’t write anything down throughout our travels, I did have my iPhone, so I took some photos whenever possible, and posted them on Instagram. Below are a few of my favorites that will hopefully give you an idea of what we did during our two days in Manhattan. Hope you enjoy them!
