24 Hours in the Big Apple with a Baby


Welcome to NYC! My ‘New York State of Mind’ was all about fashion week and running around the city with my sister a few years ago, but now I have a baby and a husband. On our way to visit family in Boston last weekend, we stopped in NYC for 24 hours.

Other than a rather unsettling moment when a homeless man on 6th Avenue walked toward Wilhelmina’s stroller aggressively barking at her and the nightmare traffic on the way to the oh-so-charming LaGuardia airport, we had a great time in NYC. It’s been a long week, let’s head to The Big Apple


The Scene – NYC! 7 AM We ran down to Rockefeller Center to the Today Plaza. The crowd looks huge on TV, but in reality it was around 100 people last Friday. If you want to see the show in NYC for a chance to meet Al or Matt, here’s what you need to know to visit the Today Plaza.


Wilhelmina was over the Today Show crowd, but she was more than happy to stop into Bouchon Bakery next door where it was warm and toasty for a Macaroon. We enjoyed the most amazing croissants and a cappuccino – Bouchon has 7 locations across the US, maybe you’ve been in Napa?

Luckily, I walked by H&M on 6th Avenue when the Kenzo collaboration had just hit H&M. There was a crowd inside the store and most of the classic Kenzo tee’s were gone, but I bought a couple pieces before everything was gone. That outfit coming soon.


A few hours before our flight, we took a walk in New York’s Central Park.

I LOVE the candy street vendors sell in NYC – especially the Sour Power Straws even if they’re a little stale. (Found the Sour Power Watermelon Straws here on Amazon too)


Until next time NYC…

After 24 hours in New York, our next stop was Boston. Hope you have a great weekend and special thank you to all the veterans and their families today as the US celebrates Veterans Day.

  1. Mmm macarons! I have a craving for sour candy now (sigh. so hard to get here!) I’m glad you had fun and the weather looked great!

  2. How did I miss this post? What fun you two beauties had in NYC! Central Park is so gorgeous in the fall. Even a quick trip to NYC is worthy.
    It was so good to catch up while you were in Chico. Let’s do it again soon!
