A Quick Day in NYC

I found myself in New York City again, after having just spent the previous weekend with my aunt in the somewhat quieter borough of Manhattan. Two weekends in a row frolicking around the city is abnormal for me, but I for sure was not complaining. This time it was my sister and I with a blank agenda on the NJ Transit trying to plan what we were going to conquer that day. My sister, lamentably, has become quite the anime fanatic and thus our day was prompted to Kinokunyia Books where she spent half an hour fan-girling over the abundant selection the store had to offer. Meanwhile, I stayed off to the side rolling my eyes at her squeals and wondering when this was going to end. The first floor of the bookstore is very cute with a decent selection of books, and the bottom floor is a stationary lovers heaven. 
Bryant Park was to the right of the bookstore and looked absolutely divine with eclectic New Yorkers juggling or reading a book. A quick lunch at Ippudo for ramen hit the spot with perfectly chewy noodles and scrumptious broth. We then whisked off to MOMA ready to relax among the museum pace. 

Surprisingly, this was our first time at the Museum of Modern Art and I was not disappointed, especially with the abundance of Picasso and Van Gogh pieces. Cliche to love two famous artists, but there is a reason that they are so revered in the world. Seeing Starry Night was an honor and it truly is a remarkable piece. The rest of the museum proved to live up to its name as modern. Throughout the five floors of the museum, I quickly realized that I am a fan of traditional paintings and modern art is not my forte. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the museum and tried to be as open as possible while examining the art . 
This quick day in NYC was the perfect getaway intertwined with sisterly bonding. My sister and I are extremely close, and I like to believe that we both thoroughly soaked up every moment of the day together. I cannot be more appreciative of being able to spend time with her during this pandemic, and during this day in NYC.
