We want to be a part of it!

Ah, New York. We love this city. There's such a constant buzz of energy here. Since we have both been here many times, we didn't cram too many activities in to our days, mostly choosing to amble about the city and take in the views. We are staying at our good friend Danielle's house in the West Village; the absolute perfect location. We've been talking about moving to New York for several years...we are still undecided about whether we will do that. There are just so many people here, it can be overwhelming! But, this city has so much of EVERYTHING to offer. Major pros of the city: FOOD, drink, everything at your fingertips. Cons: not a fan of the heat and humidity, the density of the people everywhere you go, and getting things done, such as a run to Whole Foods, just feels slightly more difficult.
We had a few days in the city hanging out with Danielle, getting some delicious meals and checking out the Biergarten at the Standard. We had a few days on our own, that we filled with relaxation and walking, then our mothers joined us a few days ago. Since our mothers arrived, so far we have spent our evenings relaxing on the roof deck and watching movies, and the days exploring.
Highlights of what we have seen: Chelsea Market, walked the High Line, went running with Claire Danes (well she was running the other direction but it counts), went and saw Motown on Broadway (which was fantastic), took our mothers to Corner Bistro and many other delicious eateries, and walked all the way from the West Village up to the Whitney for the Jeff Koons exhibit (fascinating).
Below are some pictures of the sights we have taken in. New York, we love you, but can't decide if we should keep our casual yearly fling, or if we should make an honest city out of you and move here.
