I am really lucky to live in the same state as the world famous New York City, it makes for quick weekend trips to the city very easy. I love that every time I am in the city I do something different!

This time we caught a Yankees Game, walked the High Line (old train tracks turned park), visited Chelsea Market and CitiPups Chelsea, ate at my favorite Italian restaurant near central park called Villagio on Central Park South and took a Hard Hat tour of the hospital wing of Ellis Island!

This was my first time at Ellis Island and it was pretty awesome to see my family name on the list of immigrants and learn about the history of Ellis Island and how easy we have it today compared to  those who risked everything to move across an ocean for a better life.

Check it out below, and last year’s vlog here!
