Lower Manhattan Night


My partner and I decided to do a night out in Lower Manhattan, first hitting Bavaria Bierhaus German-themed place we like on Stone Street. If you've never been, Stone Street is this little cobble-stoned street near the Southern tip of Manhattan. It's been closed off to traffic and there are now picnic tables and rows of different restaurants (though I think they may all share the same kitchen). 
It's nice when there's not a World Cup game on. 
For the night I wore the Banana Republic dress I'd recently picked up as part of my ongoing attempt to bring more color into my wardrobe. More often than not, I'll just throw on a little black dress when I go out, and when I shop, I basically have to stop myself from buying any more black! Quite often I'll be shopping and find something I really like, but then have to stop and say "Okay, I like this because I already have it at home in my closet!" So, now I'm trying to wear more colors. 

Wear all the colors! 

Stone Street can get pretty busy, and is often full of douche bags and tourists, but I've discovered that Sunday evenings are the perfect time to go there. You can sit outside, enjoy the nice summer air and just relax. It was super nice. After a couple of huge, German-sized heffeweizens and a giant pretzel, we headed even further South, down to Pier A. It's a 19th century pier that's been converted into a huge restaurant and bar. 

Pier A! (Piers B-Z have been torn down and replaced by condos)
Pier A has a huge outdoor area right on the Hudson River (over the river actually), where you can have a beer and enjoy the beautiful view of New York harbor and the Statue of Liberty. We got there, grabbed our drinks and headed to the deck where luckily the sun was setting and we had some beautiful light for lots and lots of photos! 



Let's not kid ourselves. All the tourists are actually there to see me.

Inside where they have a gallery of fish! 

After that, we headed up to try and get a few more shots in Battery Park City, but wouldn't you know it, the sun set and killed our light. Ah well, we got a few!
