|On the Brooklyn Bridge|
Likewise, Jason has also been busy with his coursework at NYU. He takes the train to Grand Central Station and a 20-minute subway to the Woolworth Building, in downtown New York City, twice a week. He’s already made friends with some of his classmates and he’s taking advantage of all that NYU has to offer: getting involved as much as he can and applying for internships through the government for this coming summer. He’s excited to come home and share with me all the new things he’s learning in international relations, but so much of it is way over my head. We’re just starting to get the hang of our new schedules and luckily, we have still been doing fun things on the weekends.
|Just starting our walk|
After our walk, we immediately went down Old Fulton Street to get some food at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. There was a line of at least a hundred people out the door, but we took it as a good sign that their pizza was really good. An hour and a half later we were seated and the pizza tasted delicious. Grimaldi’s pizza is only found in Brooklyn because it uses a coal-fired brick oven, which is illegal in Manhattan. What made their pizza distinct was the crust, the mix of basil and tomato sauce, and the goat cheese. This pizza was worth the wait and we will definitely be back.
|I can still taste the magnificence|
After lunch, we strolled on the pier and took in the views of the skyline and the East River. It was a beautiful day and Jason and I at least saw 10 different brides and grooms taking pictures. It still seems so surreal that we live in New York and we’re just a train ride away from the city. We were use to looking for adventure in a small town in Idaho, but here, adventure finds us and there’s no limit to the places to visit or experiences to be had.
