Shopping and cocktails!
Last day in New York. This morning we headed to Madame Toussades wax museum which was great. Gwyn headed off to see Callum so we decided to go on a sightseeing walk. First stop was the grand Central Station, followed by the sex museum and Friends apartment. Found a gorgeous wee restaurant where we had a couple of glasses of wine whilst watching the world go by. Headed back to the hotel to meet with Gwyn and wandered up Time Square to an Italian restaurant that served the biggest pizza I've ever seen!Read more
This morning we headed to the Rockefeller Center, a short walk from our hotel. Amazing views from the top. After that we spotted a wee outdoor wine bar where we had a very enjoyable drop! Next a guided tour of Radio City where we met a Rockette.
Today is Gwyno's 60th! The reason we are in New York! This morning we met with Callum and Maddie in a cute diner for breakfast. We then wandered down to the wharf where we surprised Gwyno by boarding the Bateaux for our lunch cruise on the Hudson River. What an amazing experience sipping champagne whilst cruising past NYC skyline, the Brooklyn bridge and the statue of liberty. Next stop another surprise for the birthday girl. A stop at Tiffany's where we all joined in the birthday spirit and made a purchase! Back to the hotel for a quick change before heading over the Brooklyn bridge to the River Cafe! Wow! Food and view out of this world.Read more
This morning we walked along the high line, an old freight train line elevated above the city on Manhattans west side. After a wee shop in Chelsea Market we caught the subway to Central Park where we spent the next couple of hours doing a pedicab tour. Many shows filmed here including Stuart Little, Borat, Friends and Face Off! A stop in at a lovely wine bar on our way home. First sign of bad weather tonight.Read more
