SO MUCH TO DO: NYC

By  |  0 Comments

While I was in NYC, I quickly found out that there is a ton of things to do, and events to attend in the city. And the best part of these things is that a majority of them are free. Which was great for my college sized budget!

First up, after my first day of work I walked a few blocks, until I heard a bunch of screaming teenagers. Turns out The Fault in Our Stars NYC movie premiere was occurring. Since I loved the book so much, I decided to stick around and check it out. Needless to say, I didn’t have VIP tickets so I had to stand across the street. BUT, John Green being the awesome person he is, walked across the street to say hi, and sign autographs for a bunch of people. How awesome!

The New York Rangers were in the Stanley Cup play off finals, so NYC was going a bit crazy with support. They had an outdoor viewing party over in Bryant Park, which hundreds of people attended. I was a Rangers fan for the night. Hey! When in NYC!

I stood in line for standby tickets to watch The Chew. I ended up getting in, and later got picked to sit in the tasting area. My Summer was made within the first week of being in NYC!

I love the Today show and their free concerts. Sara Bareilles was absolutely amazing live! One of the very few artists I would actually go see live!
