Yesterday was Rob’s 25th birthday, and I thought it would be fun to do some particularly “New York” things together to celebrate his special day!
I began the day by bringing him breakfast and then had him open his present: a day full of New York experiences! First, we’d check out the International Center of Photography, a museum we’ve had our eyes on since we got to the city. Then we’d begin a New York City scavenger hunt that would take us around some parks, restaurants, shops, and buildings in Union Square and the Flatiron District.
Finally, we’d go see one of Rob’s favorite music artists, Jay Z, at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn! The Barclays Center just opened this weekend, and will be the new home of the Brooklyn Nets. Jay Z is a partial owner of the team, and decided to put on 8 sold-out shows to inaugurate the arena. Check out this article.
