I’ve just landed back into the UK from what was an amazing week in New York City, and I couldn’t wait to tell you all what I was upto while I was there. I did attempt to vlog my trip, however I did struggle to find the balance between vlogging and living in the moment and so I did eventually give up. However each evening I documented my day in the notes of my iPhone and decided to put them into daily post for you guys.
So I arrived in New York at 1pm today and got to our hotel at around 3pm. After settling into the hotel after about an hour, the girls and I decided to start planning out what we wanted to do for our first day, we all had done a New York bucket list but hadn’t actually planned anything before arriving. We all had on our bucket list to see a NBA game, and after doing some research the only NBA game on the week we were here was Brooklyn Nets Vs Boston Celtics, and that was on tonight. After debating on what to do we decided to quickly get ready, grab some food and head to the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn to try and get some tickets for the game.
I was a little nervous heading out just us 3 girls at night in such a big city, however the excitement of the adventure ahead took over. For our dinner on our first night we went to Bareburger, which ended up being one of our favourite spots in Nee York. I had an all American cheeseburger with a sunny side egg, avocado and dill pickles inside with a strawberry lemonade. The burger was absolutely unreal and was exactly what I needed after such a long flight, the portion wasn’t overly massive as I had been told about but was very filling and was worth the price. The staff were incredible friendly and so helpful and really made the experience even more enjoyable.
After such a lovely dinner we decided to get an Uber to the Barclays Centre, it was way too far to walk and we hadn’t quite figured out the subway yet, and with little time an Uber was our only option. On our way we crossed the Brooklyn bridge and it really sunk in that we was actually in New York. We managed to grab some tickets from the box office and there we were at our very first NBA game.
Firstly I want to say everyone needs to go to a NBA game once in their life. It really is a whole experience, from the food stalls to the game itself and the entertainment during the breaks. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the cheerleaders, as well as the entertainment from the hype team and the kiss cam. I also never knew that they played music during the game and that I loved. Me and the girls enjoyed a little sing along and boogey in our seats to a few of the songs. We also saw designer Steve Madden, rappers ASAP Ferg and Joey Badass at the game too which was quite exciting.
After the game we headed back to the hotel, we did initially try to get the Subway but decided to get off after hearing an announcement for the NYPD to be called to a situation. I really wasn’t trying to get into any situations on my first night and so we got another Uber back.
Day two will be posted later on tonight, look out for the time on my Instagram story.
