Flatiron District

March 13, 2015

For my last day of spring break, my mom and I headed into NYC for a fun morning exploring the Flatiron District.  While I've walked through this area before, I can't believe its taken me this long to discover all of the wonderful shops and delicious food spots it has to offer.

The namesake of the Flatiron District is the Flatiron Building. It's unique architecture and flat shape make it a landmark of New York City.
We started the day at City Bakery, a trendy bakery tucked in 5th avenue with world-famous hot chocolate.  I can't even begin to describe how delicious it is and the homemade marshmallow on top is the perfect addition.

I snapped this at Anthropologie because who doesn't love pastels and painted globes?!
I've been dying to visit Eataly since the Nutella Bar opened, and while it was sadly just a temporary situation, it was tough to be disappointed when the options for Italian food there were delicious and never-ending. My mom and I grabbed lunch at the beer garden on the 14th floor.
When we finished lunch, I insisted we sample the gelato. I got mint chocolate chip and it was to-die-for!
