by Allie Sigl       For those brave enough to get up early, the day began by heading to Esse-a-Bagels.

Day Thirty – New York City and Providence RI

Posted on July 23, 2018

by Jason Alpert-Wisnia: One last time we woke up in the Days Hotel, leaving behind it’s simplistic hospitality for a final day in the city which never sleeps.
