My friend Amanda was in town for a week and I wanted to share some of the highlights of her visit!

Taking a nighttime tour of Lincoln Center after going to the Empire Room rooftop bar!

Down to Little Italy for the San Gennaro Festival!

This year’s highlight of the festival? This Neapolitan waffle ice cream sandwich. Necessary!

Rooting for the ducks at the duck bar!

Doing that Times Square thing!

Up to Rockefeller Center, which is a much different site in the summer than the winter. No ice skating rink this season! And then up 5th Avenue by the Plaza and into the park.

I’m still baffled by this display. How do you get all of these live animals to just sit there and chill?? The things you see in Central Park..
