New Years Eve at Times Square – NYC 2018

December 31, 2018 – January 2, 2019 

John and I both grew up in New York and we have never seen the ball drop in person so this was a HUGE thing for us to do! It should be on everyone’s bucket list. You hear all the stories and you see it on TV how the pens are filled up and how you can’t get out of the pen once you are in it so to see it in person was something else.

We had the best time and met some really great people. We will do this again one day!

We spent the weekend at my favorite town in NY – Montauk, The End of Long Island.

Long Island is full of Poison Ivy

Our friend’s wedding in New York – September 2018 was held at the beautiful Oheka Castle.

New York – 2017

This year our trip to NY started in Manhattan for five days and then we drove to Montauk (my favorite place ever) for a few days, and we love acting like tourists now that we don’t live in NY anymore. It’s fantastic that we are exploring more of NY now that we don’t live there.

We took a horse and carriage ride through Central Park – A must if you are visiting Manhattan.

We rented a rowboat in Central Park which was fun.

The food was OK I wouldn’t recommend it. My favorite steakhouse is The Old Homestead 🙂

New York Philharmonic Show

Montauk – We rented a cottage at Gurney’s Resort

Montauk Lighthouse 

Deep Hollow Ranch – Oldest Cattle Ranch in the USA

The best drink stirrers EVER!!!

The coolest tree-lined home in East Hampton on Further Lane

Whenever we are in Montauk we always eat at Zum Schneider

We order the Pork Shank – It is delicious!!

We also always stop at John’s Drive-In and get soft ice cream, of course, I had to have chocolate one day and vanilla the next. I am an ice cream JUNKIE!!!!

Leaving Montauk and driving back to the city we always stop at another favorite spot it’s in Poxabogue. Make sure you order the BLT it is the best we have ever had!

Montauk – The End of Long Island

Montauk is my absolute favorite place to visit. I can’t explain it but I just feel so great whenever we are there. Most people hear about the Hamptons but this is my go-to place. Unfortunately, it has become a popular vacation spot and it’s much busier.
