As my personal mission to improve the art Uncling, or of being the best Uncle ever. Brendan and I decided to give a cool gift for the upcoming bar mitzvah boy & handsome nephew, Nathaniel Alpin. Brendan and I flew him out for an 8 day super adventure of a lifetime in the Big Apple. Only two days in and we are having an amazing time and covering a lot of ground. Making memories and walking through all the beautiful and historic collection of villages that is Manhattan. We had already seen the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, City Hall, Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho, West Village, Washington Square Park and The Highline Park. For a well rounded feel we thought to take advantage of the world class arts by taking in a great Broadway show at Lincoln Center, War Horse. We are lucky enough to know one of the stars of the show, Hunter Canning who allowed us to come backstage and experience a real show from behind the scenes, play around with the props, meet the main actors of the show and have our Playbills signed. Our upcoming adventure's next stop is the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Guggenheim, The Jewish Museum, Natural History Museum explore the Upper West Side and Upper East Side and who knows, just spending some quality time together is always fun.
