NYC Recap - Part II

Here's day two recap of our New York trip. Scroll down (or click here) to see yesterday's post on our arrival to the big city....

After a long day on Thursday we slept in on Friday and headed out mid morning. The weather forecast had predicted rain but luckily it was only cloudy. We grabbed a quick bite to eat at a small cafe and walked through Times Square before getting on our first subway of the day.

This picture is actually pretty calm of Times Square. We must of caught the time after the early morning hustle and before lunch hour.


Our first stop of the day was the Financial District. Here's Ryan walking down Wall Street. I think he could fit in, don't you??


The New York Stock Exchange

We're actually in front of Ground Zero trying to find our way to the closest station. I had to get a shot of Ryan on the iPhone because honestly this little guy was a life saver! We pulled out the iPhone at every corner and all we had to do was plug in what neighborhood we wanted to go to next and the GPS told us exactly what streets to turn on and what subway to catch. I don't know what we would of done without it!
A glimpse of what you see on almost every street corner. Unfortunately, I didn't get to try out one of the hot dogs but maybe next time.
Now we're in Soho and we absolutely loved this area! There were so many great shops and restaurants here that we walked around for quite some time. We ended up stopping for lunch at Soho Park and ate outside. Oh, and did you know that no one wears color in NYC?? I'm pretty sure I stood out all weekend with my bright colors. Oh well...


After lunch we headed to the Upper East Side and walked around that neighborhood before venturing into Central Park. We stumbled upon the Central Park Boathouse and we stopped for a drink on their patio before heading to the Great Lawn.
Ryan and I at Rockefellar Plaza. Apparently when you're on vacation you don't have to shave. Haha J/K. We had a wait to go up to the Top of the Rock so we decided to stop here and take a break from walking. Oh, and we might of had another drink :)

One of my favorite pictures from the weekend. The views from up there were spectacular and it seemed that the city never ended. You can also get a good idea of how big Central Park actually is.

After that we headed back to the hotel to get cleaned up for dinner. We took another subway out to East Village and went to a small Italian restaurant called Max. After that we headed back to Greenwich (yes, we took the subway again) and found another bar with live music. Overall, another great day in the city!
I plan on posting pictures from the last day of our trip either tomorrow or Thursday. We're actually celebrating our 2nd anniversary tomorrow so we'll see if I can get another post in or not. Have a good rest of the day!

  2. Ok, in that picture in Times Square you are LITERALLY right outside the door of my office building!!! And yes, that is a very calm Times Square indeed...definitely the lull between the two storms. And don't worry--I wear color in NYC!
