My home girl, Ramirez's birthday is today and we spent the weekend in NY celebrating.
She has never been to New York and being that I live in NY I figured what better way to celebrate the birthday then to go up to NY and hang out.
My main focus for the weekend was to show her how I really live. People at my school have different conceptions of New York and it consists of Manhattan and Long Island--I don't live like that. So I wanted her to see Staten Island and Brooklyn.
She's only 20 as of today so we kept it legal... I don't drink much anyways--the only thing I do drink is Red Passion Alize.
So our first stop in the Big Apple was TIMES SQUARE
You have to go to Times Square when you go to NY--its just soo much fun
Most people that live in NY spend very little time in Times Square. Its a good tourist attraction because theres so much going on out there. Clubs, Bars, Restaurants, Cafe's, Stores, Shops, street vendors, cars, lights, and a bunch of Crazies!!!
So for my homegirl, who goes to bed by 10 O'clock everynight, she was in complete awe when she seen the streets filled with people and cars at midnight.
"There are people older then my mother out here!"
We walked all around Times Square, mainly 40th-49th and between 6th and 8th.
We stopped in some of the shops and widow shopped.
We grabbed a pizza slice at Ray's Pizza (48th & Broadway) and then walked around somemore.
We stopped by Rockerfella Center but it was closing so we didn't get to see much but thats okie.
Saturday was a cool day, we slept late then went for a 2 mile walk in the park.
After our walk, we got ready to do some shopping. I took her to the Shopping center at the corner of Atlantic and Flatbush.
After shopping we had dinner at one of my favorite Mexican Restaurants, Burrito Bar & Kitchen
on Flatbush ave. Dinner was great.
