Before last weekend, Brian had never stepped foot in New York City.
THIS. HAD. TO. CHANGE.
So, as I mentioned last week, we took a mini road trip down to NYC. I am happy to report we made it through our first road trip as a couple! Granted, it was only 3.5 hours. But I'll take milestones where I can get 'em. (Let's hope we survive our next road trip... roughly 2,400 miles [39 hours of driving!] across the U.S. so we can actually live in the same town.)
We did all sorts of stuff... from the typical (pizza/cheesecake in Times Square and exploring the Top of the Rock) to the not-so-typical (a trek to see the Ghostbusters firehouse and a stop at the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop with my good pal Luis).
Amidst all our adventure, we took a siesta on Umpire Rock, a big chunk of bedrock in the south end of Central Park. We lounged about in the sun and listened to birds chirping and kids playing. Brian suggested I record a bit for the Sunday Sound. I appreciated his suggestion.
THE SUNDAY SOUND: April 15, The Sound of Central Park.
