My mom, Arieson and I decided to visit New York for the weekend, just because. It was the weekend after Thanksgiving, and my mom's birthday, so we thought we'd take advantage of the free time we all had concurrently. New York is my favorite place in the world, and I thought it would be nice for Arieson to see his mama's favorite spot. I loved our weekend stay, and so did Arieson. The air was so crisp and winter-like, unlike the warm sort-of-cool weather back in California. We rode the Staten Island ferry, and had some real New York pizza.
We stayed with my aunt and uncle, whose apartment is right across the NYSE. This is the view from their balcony.
The huge Christmas tree at Seaport, not far from my aunt and uncle's place. Arieson loved this tree (and trees), and I fell in love with Seaport. It's such a cute little village, and it was especially beautiful at night.
I loved the globe display on this Hermès window. This store is right next to our building.
