Blast from the past: NYC

A few weekends ago Steven and I took a day trip into the city, New York city that is....
I wanted to start the trip off right by getting a little "over friendly"...
One of my bestest friends from Maine just HAPPENED to be in the city, so I made it a requirement to stop and see her for a few minutes. best.ever.

After that Steven showed me that he made a fortune-teller-thing out of paper (remember those from middle school) where I had to pick different numbers to determine what we were going to do for the day. Have I mentioned how amazing he is? If not, He is pretty amazing ;)
First stop was a lomography store in Greenwich Village...
...as you can tell I get impatient waiting for photos to be taken -___-
(note the camera I'm carrying around in all these photos-lomography)
We then used the timer app on my phone to take this baby.
*swear this was unplanned*
 Next we saw itty bitty puppies at le petit puppy.
They were adorable, but the place was as small as the puppies they sell, so we weren't there too long.
 Then, as we walking to an indoor market we saw something that almost made Steven pee his pants (note: Steven goes to school for architecture). So, apparently there is a park in NYC that is built on an old railroad track. It is pretty awesome, actually.  The park is called "The High Line".  Has anyone ever visited this before? If not, I highly suggest going on a nice day.  It's away from all the hustle and bustle of the city. I really loved it.
Finally we went for some hot dogs at this little place, Crif Dogs.  I was so hungry I was at the point of anger (this picture probably accurately represents how I was feeling...no smile, turned head (signifying agitation), and cold shoulder.  I said to Steven "Please do not talk to me because I will be rude/mean/whatever. So leave me alone until I eat". I know it sounds harsh, but I know myself. 
Added on to the hunger...we walked EVERYWHERE and did not take any public transportation because I'm cheap and I have two legs, so I believe walking is good. 
Regardless of my five minutes of crankiness, this was one of the best times I have ever had in the city.  I liked that I got away from all the "touristy" things and really saw New York City for what it is.  I actually appreciate the city a lot more than I used to.
