Playing Tourist in NYC | Manhattan

It's kind of amazing how infrequently Preston & I go into Manhattan for recreational purposes (not counting going to the office...) Having friends & family visit (especially NYC newbies) gives us the chance to play tourist for the day. We stopped by the usual destinations: Bryant Park, Rockefeller Center, Herald Square (including a detour through Koreatown), Grand Central, Times Square, Central Park, & Columbus Circle, which all had a holiday twist for the upcoming season.

[Columbus Circle always reminds me of when I first moved to the city.]

[It's one of my favourite holiday spots.]

I had a hard time being judicious with this post. I took over 280 pictures this weekend! Most photos were basically just #fallporn... I am looking forward to the holidays, but I will definitely miss the fall leaves. If you are as obsessed with Autumn as I am, stick around for Part II-Brooklyn.

There are many other Manhattan locations we didn't have the time for; some other favs of mine are Union Square, SoHo, Chelsea (especially the High Line), and Lincoln Center (to name a few!) But I think we did an awesome job of exploring Manhattan in 8 hours.

What are some of your favourite NYC spots?
