Big Meetup in the Big Apple

2011 kicked off with a meetup between Jersey Iggy and Wander Iggy (formerly known as "Singapurple Iggy") in New York City! It's the second Iggy Meetup ever to occur in the City That Never Sleeps! Wander Iggy left her Singapore nest to fly to Amsterdam and then to New Jersey just in time for the holidays! From Amsterdam all the way to a city formerly known as "New Amsterdam" where a Holland Tunnel exists--The Becky thought that Holland is hot on her heels!

Here they are in Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most iconic structures in the Big Apple!

The Iggy sisters noticed that a little trend is forming a chain on the bridge...Fortuitous Faery likes to call them Padlocks of Passion, similar to the "Love Locks" seen in Cologne, Germany's Hohenzollern Bridge. Sweethearts declare their love and the fact that they reached Brooklyn Bridge by attaching padlocks with their names and sentiments etched on it, thereby keeping the public structure graffiti-free. But are they legal?

Miss Iggy was happy to meet The Becky and loco-for-Lomo husband Panelomo. They are such a fun couple to photograph! Here they are beneath the Bethesda Terrace in Central Park.


After a day of subway-hopping fueled by burrito bowls and cheesecake, they parted ways in Grand Central Terminal. Wander Iggy will wander off to Spain soon. Jersey Iggy can only hope for the best for her country-hopping, scholarly sister.
