After grabbing brunch last Sunday, my friends and I decided to explore the Lower Manhattan area. I have a goal of really getting to know different areas of the city before I decide to leave and pack my bags for the west coast in a couple of years. Lower Manhattan was definitely a lot younger than I expected and it feels like somewhere I would love to live. If only rent was cheaper in downtown New York City. There were so many bars, restaurants, and cute little businesses around every street corner. I managed to find a 16 Handles, which is definitely one of the best frozen yogurt places. Hands down. After drowning ourselves in frozen yogurt, we sat in the nearby plaza and basked in the beautiful, spring weather. Perfect Sunday afternoon? Definitely.
