A lazy day in Vallejo, California, hanging out with Adam & Peter’s dogs & pig.
I checked out from the TWA hotel and took off from NYC, off to California for a few days!

Before leaving town, I spent the night at the new TWA Hotel at JFK airport, where I enjoyed the Sunken Bar & the Connie bar, which is pretty neat in that it’s inside an actual vintage airplane.

Today, I had lunch at Allswell in Williamsburg, and then walked up to see the Kaws sculpture in Greenpoint, before heading over to Manhattan to pick up some currency ahead of my trip.

Today, I had lunch at one of my favorite spots, Union Square Cafe. Beforehand, I walked past the New York City Columbus Day Parade, and took a few photos.

Today, I had brunch at Momofuku Ssäm Bar with some friends, walked down to Soho to the REI store to buy a new jacket for my travels, and then I walked home across the Williamsburg Bridge.
