New York, New York

Matt and I recently took a trip up to New York. Neither one of us had been to New York City. We (meaning Matt) made sure to pack every day full with new adventures. These pictures actually go backwards, starting with our last day and moving towards our first day.

These pictures are taken from some air conditioning units on top of an older building found in the heart of New York City.

Turns out if you act like you know where your going in New York you can end up in some pretty cool places. One of Matt's mission companions, who lives in New York, took us to this hidden treasure.
This is latter the we used to get to that great spot. Little scary!

Earlier that day we went to a session in the Manhattan temple. It was incredible.

We spent some time at the Natural History Museum. Matt loved the dinosaur section.
I really like the Marine area. You can actually spend the night in certain areas of the museum on these little cots. It sounded like fun, but Matt and I stuck to the hotel.

The first day we got a behind the scenes tour of the 30 Rock building and some of the studio's in there. This is were the tape NBC News. We made sure to stop by the Saturday Night Live set before they took it down. They are going to use that studio for olympic updates this summer.
Unfortunately I could not get all of our photos to load, but I promise we were there together even though we are not together in any of these photos. We spent some time on Broadway at The Lion King, Mama Mia and of course the ESPN Zone.
