all good things must come to an end.

One of my favorite shots - no filter
Sunday morning was the rainiest of our days in Manhattan. 
Thankfully it was our shortest day as our driver picked us up to head to the airport at 4pm.
But not before we hit up a few more sites. 

After breakfast, we took the subway to Brooklyn to see Coney Island. 
I knew the area got pretty trashed in in the hurricane. But I really wanted to see it for myself.
The boardwalk was shut down. The pier was missing boards.
It was sad. lonely. deserted. broken.

To perk ourselves after that slightly depressing trek, we headed back to Chelsea to take a walk on the High Line. Since it's an elevated park on old railroad tracks, it offered some pretty cool views of the city.

And with our last few hours, we had lunch and explored the Chelsea Market. It is a cool retail concourse with more than 30 high-quality shops, restaurants, bakeries and much more. Chelsea Market is a full-block collection of 17 buildings that once housed production facilities for Nabisco.

And that was it. 
Ready or not, our mini-vacay had come to a close. Stanley picked us up and carted us back to the airport. I fell asleep on the drive to JFK. If you didn't know, those Lincoln Town Cars are wicked comfortable.

A and I are so grateful we had the opportunity to share these few days together in New York. Hopefully it will be our last getaway before I am pregnant. 

P.S. I'll be posting an update on the status of our IVF on Weds so stop by and say hello.

Yahoo for a great Babymoon in the Big Apple! I'm so glad you guys had a great time. Thanks for sharing it with us. The pictures have been amazing!

My hubs and I took a babymoon trip to NYC for Thanksgiving (and the Parade!) last year, and they were some memories we'll never forget. What a magical place.

Praying for your IVF process!

So glad you enjoyed your time in NYC. I've been there before in my twenties. I am so anxious to get back there with my daughter. I know she would really enjoy it. Happy New Year to you and your family, may all your dreams come true in 2013!!!
