This trip turned out to be quite the nightmare! The day I was supposed to fly into Newark a huge winter storm hit that completely shut down all the airports. So my flight on Thursday night got canceled. They rebooked me for a flight on Friday, but after getting to the airport, checking in, waiting, it too was canceled. By Saturday I was beyond frustrated…especially since my boyfriend had managed to arrive from Toronto on Thursday night. But Saturday morning I finally made it out, and we then tried to make the most of our 24 hours of vacation that remained. We went for a carriage ride through Central Park, ate dinner at the Russian Tea Room and then went to a Pat Green concert that night. The next day we walked through Times Square, explored the USS Growler Submarine and USS Intrepid, went out to the world trade center memorial, looked across to the Statue of Liberty, pretended to be kids in FAO Schwartz and then after a long day caught our flight to Toronto.

I had seen Niagara Falls from the Canadian side the previous year, but I wanted to see it from the American side as well. I happened to be in Buffalo, NY for the night, so my boyfriend and I drove to Niagara Falls that afternoon. The winter landscape just made it that much more amazing. The water was frozen and all the mist in the air from the falls was freezing. The trees surrounding the falls were covered in freezing rain – it was beautiful. I got my foot picture, we walked to the various lookout areas and then headed back before we froze ourselves!
