I want to beeeee a paaaart of it....

In a very short time, Justin and I will be leaving the captivating, frenetic, magical, and exhausting city of New York for what I imagine will be a VERY different life. While we have a lot of traveling lined up for the summer, we plan to spend the first 2 weeks of July and our last few days in September doing a "Goodbye NYC Tour," visiting some places that have become near and dear to us, some that we've always talked about seeing, and some that just seem like a fun way to say goodbye to this crazy, crazy city.
