That Time I Met The Gilmore Girls Family

I have an amazing Gilmore Girls-related tale to tell. I have never committed this story to paper. Besides the friends I’ve told and one Facebook post, this has literally been a legend in my own mind. It’s also one of those stories that makes you say “Only in New York”. All the news and excitement about the revival not only renewed my own love of the show, but also reminded me of my all time favorite New York and Gilmore...

We saw Broadway plays in the middle of blizzards, visited the dinosaurs and ancient civilizations at the museum, and witnessed breathtaking views of the skyline from the top of the World Trade Center, Empire State Building, and Lady Liberty’s crown. And to think, all of this,...
