Empire State of Mind. Manhattan, New York

My dear Jimmy Fallon chose this week of all weeks to not have any Late Night tapings.

"In New Yooork, concrete jungle where dreams are made of, there's nothing you can't do ..."
Oh, Alicia Keyes and Jay Z, you are right. I've literally dreamt of visiting NYC for YEARS! I was excited!

My sister, Georgia and I arrived in New York in the afternoon, but didn't leave our Midtown hotel, Spring Hill Suites Mariott, until the ripe hour of 8:00pm: the city was still bustling. We took our own walking tour, visiting FAO Schwartz, Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, NBC Studios and of course Times Square. Our goal was to be at the Empire State Building by 11:00pm.

Why? Because if we had gone during peak hours, we probably would have spent the entire day in line! Think Disney Land and you kicking yourself for not having a Fast Pass. So for us, walking past rows of red ropes that would have been a nightmare wait felt exhilarating. ;) Our first trip to NYC was off to a great start! ... That pizza we had in Times Square helped too though lol. The pizza was the best pizza I've ever had #realtalk!
