12: Little Italy
13: McSorley's Old Ale House The oldest pub in NYC, est. 1854

17: Governors Island | We made a quick trip to Governors Island on July 4th, a ghost town recently opened to the public, that used to be a military base.

23: The Standard Hotel was our trendy hotspot. Upon arrival we went to the rooftop bar with great views & pink waterbeds, and days later to the beer garden. The view from the upstairs bathroom was very impressive (see below).
25: Naturally, a large part of our trip revolved around food. I roped Eric into trying my favorite Korean dumplings & bibimbop in Koreatown.
