NYC Day 1 – East Village

Our first day in New York was quite a benchmark of how much we were going to walk during that whole American trip. Google maps might say 6.5 miles, but with all the zig-zaging, it was actually closer to 10…Cake + Whisky | USA | NYC East VillageOn our first day, we decided to go explore the Lower East Side of Manhattan with the (unspoken) objective of finding my dream house (with one of those lovely fire-escape staircases, of course!).Cake + Whisky | USA | NYC East VillageCake + Whisky | USA | NYC East VillageDoesn’t that one look stunning? Who wants to move in with me?Cake + Whisky | USA | NYC East VillageCake + Whisky | USA | NYC East VillageCake + Whisky | USA | NYC East VillageCake + Whisky | USA | NYC East VillageCake + Whisky | USA | NYC East VillageThe red bricks are so caracteristic of this part of the city. Red, red, red everywhere! Not that I mind it at all! It is a major part of the atmosphere in this part of the city and gives it this homely feeling that made me want to move in almost instantly!Cake + Whisky | USA | NYC East VillageWe took a little break in the shade of Tompkins Square Park, together with many local schoolkids and dog owners (there’s a bone-shapped pool for dogs in the park! How cool is that?)Cake + Whisky | USA | NYC East VillageCake + Whisky | USA | NYC East VillageSouth of the park, it was all about street art and I might have fell in love with a few pieces…Cake + Whisky | USA | NYC East Village(yes I know I’ve already shown you that picture, but it might well be my favourite of this entire trip!)Cake + Whisky | USA | NYC East VillageCake + Whisky | USA | NYC East VillageEn route, we stopped for a bit of shopping (who wouldn’t?)…Cake + Whisky | USA | NYC East VillageAnd seriously considered a glass of wine for added wisdom…Cake + Whisky | Katz's Deli NYC… before heading to Katz’s for a (big) bit of lunch!

With very full stomach, we decided to head North to get up-close with New York’s iconic skyline… But more on that tomorrow!
