I got the chance to go to New York City for the first time the weekend before last. My friend, and co-worker, Katalina and I were attending the National Stationery Show. We packed the two days we had before and after the show with sight seeing, walking, good food, and reference shopping. The first thing we decided to do after we checked into the hotel was to hop on the Metro and head on down to Coney Island. Best decision we made all weekend. I can't get over how magical that place is. I was so inspired by the colors and signage I couldn't stop taking pictures.
