Two of my girlfriends I've known since boarding school celebrated their birthdays this month (one turned the big 3-0!) so a crew of us got together, some from out of town, and we all went on a sunset cruise! Honestly, I have lived in New York City for over 8 years and this might be the coolest thing I've ever done in the city. It's the perfect thing to do with friends (or for a romantic date!) and it'd be an amazing activity to add to your itinerary if you're visiting in the summertime.
The weather was absolutely perfect. It was breezy on the water, but still plenty warm enough and the views were unreal. I was the annoying tourist on the boat being like, "GUYS. LOOK!" and snapping a million pictures. I'm also preeetty sure I spilled champagne on every passenger on board, trying to balance myself for a photo op. (Sorry!) You can see a few of my snapshots below.
I call the look above hot mess.
After the cruise, we all headed to Porchlight (owned by the same guy as Shake Shack!) to meet up with others including Patrick and two of our buddies after a Mets / Dbacks game. Such a fun summer night.
