New York – 2017

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.

Tree inside the Cartier Store

Inside St. Patrick’s Cathedral

We rented a rowboat in Central Park which was fun.

Pretty Christmas Tree at the New York Palace Hotel

Pretty wreath in BLT Steakhouse
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!
