I hadn’t seen my girls Emeri and Madeline in quite some time, so I decided to spend the day with them on Saturday. As the founding members of team awesome, we always have an adventure when we are together.
I took the Path train to Hoboken and met up with Emeri first. I had never been there before, but I loved it right away. The views of Manhattan were stunning, and the neighborhood there was very laid back.
Frank Sinatra park/beach was really fun to walk around. We had perfect weather, and a perfect buzz from our margaritas after visiting the local candy shop. Emeri and I contemplated Madeline’s recent move to Yonkers, and we decided that since we couldn’t see Yonkers from where we were, we would just have to go see it and her ourselves!
We hopped on a bus from Hoboken to Port Authority, and from there caught the shuttle to Grand Central. Finally, we took the Metro North to Yonkers, but not before we bought some white wine and pretzels at the cart on the train platform ( ! ). How about that for utilizing public transportation in a New York minute?!
Our train ride to Yonkers was short, and we made a new friend on the way. She explained to us that she was from Yonkers and that it is a nice place to live, but thought we were odd for going just because. We were on a mission to see the third leg of our tripod—Madeline!
Upon arrival, we met Madeline on the boardwalk by the Hudson. The view from her apartment alone is to die for. It was beyond peaceful. Emeri posed with the giant sturgeon and played inside of model fish for a while before we checked out Madeline’s sweet pad.
Madeline wined and dined us until we were stuffed, and we loved catching up as the sun set along the west bank of the river. We gave each other hugs and kisses and Emeri and I were on the last train back to Grand Central. We both have a greater appreciation for getting outside The City now. We were definitely recharged. In fact, I was recharged enough to go to a party via a Vespa later that evening in Washington Heights. You already know it was too festive for fotos though, lol.
