Photo Diary: New York City in the Fall

Post image for Photo Diary: New York City in the Fall

This weekend I was in New York City for our crafting event at Free People Upper East.  I love New York this time of year – the weather was still mild enough to walk around outside all day comfortably, but a cheerful holiday spirit fills the air.  I spent Saturday wandering around in Brooklyn and stayed the night at the Bowery House in downtown Manhattan before heading to the Upper East Side on Sunday.

My first stop was Brooklyn Flea – a thrifter and vintage lover’s heaven!

After spending a little too much time sifting through all the treasures, I walked down to Prospect Park where there was a little farmer’s market – and hot apple cider!

I would so love to live in a Brooklyn brownstone one day…

I stopped for a quick cider at a pub in Brooklyn -  I loved the little jar they served it in! Then I hopped on the subway back to Manhattan to head to the Bowery House, where I was staying. This place is perfect for anyone traveling to NYC on a budget, if you’re literally just looking for a place to crash.  It has a cool history – in the 1940s it was a temporary home to soldiers returning from World War II.  The location is convenient and the price is great, plus it has a cool rooftop garden – but if you’re a light sleeper, bring ear plugs :)

that turquoise jewelry and the vintage christmas decorations are to die for! flea markets in southwestern virginia don’t quite have the same charm as new york.
