I had a big surprise present from my family for my Birthday, a weekend trip to New York! As you can imagine, two and a half days including flights isn't long for the first time visit to NY so we tried to sleep less and visit as much in these two days as possible. Unfortunately weather was working against our plans the entire weekend. Next trip to NY is definitely going to be during summer months. We had it all, blowing snow on first day, fog and temperature constantly below zero on second day, and a freezing rain at the end to make this weekend memorable :). Below is what we still managed to visit: Museum of Modern History; Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum; Rockefeller Center; The Plaza Hotel; Times Square; Empire State Building; St. Patrick's Cathedral; and we took a Staten Island Ferry!
