Despite the blazing hot temperatures during our trip to NYC (we’re talking 95+ degrees), we tried to spend at least part of every day outdoors. Of course, we opted for parks with green space and gentle breezes over the sticky (and somewhat stinky) streets of midtown.
We dressed Sam in loose and lightweight clothing, lathered him in sunscreen, and packed several bottles of water. He was quite a trooper!
We walked the perimeter of Central Park several more times during our stay because it has some of the best people watching!
On Tuesday, Andrew took us to Lower Manhattan to see his office, have lunch, and relax in Battery Park. New Jersey actually looks good from this vantage point!
Sam absolutely loved crawling around on the grass … and towards every stranger in sight. Fortunately, he got lots of friendly smiles.
Andrew’s office overlooks the Hudson River — quite a view! I’m surprised he gets any work done.
The other side of his building overlooks the World Trade Center Memorial. Not many people get to see this sight from above.
We strolled along the Hudson River after dinner on our final day in the city. There is a fantastic paved path that was packed with joggers and bikers.
And strollers. Andrew looks like such a natural, right?
Did I mention that Sam learned to yell during our trip? It sounds a bit like “HEY,” and he directed it towards almost every person we passed.
