Shopping NYC styleNovember 25 in the United States
Another lazy start to the day, taking our time to get sorted and skipping breakfast, before we hit the shops. Macy’s first and after spending all morning there, they have some good deals as well as some of the original building features, notably in the escalators 4th floor and above. We drop our purchases back at the hotel, before taking a late lunch.
We then go back down to 33rd street to a mall, to be honest it’s a bit rubbish, but we have our bargains.
We go up 5th Avenue to Topshop (I know) but we are looking for something specific, it turns out to be a good decision as its opposite Saks on 5th Avenue and they do spectacular light display on the front of the shop, I’ll try to upload a video in the pics.
Another refreshment stop before we head to the Empire State Building, an anniversary gift from the kids (thanks Grace for organising), a great view of New York at night, pictures can’t do it justice. I make a little faux pas on the 86th floor of the observatory, put my arm around Janet and point out our hotel.... only I don’t recognise the voice or reply, it’s not Janet, rather a young oriental lady. Fortunately she sees the funny side and Janet is right next to her😂😂😂
As we wander back to the hotel we spot a Carraghers bar so in we pop, before returning to the hotel, sampling a hotdog from one of the many street vendors (it’s pretty average). But another great day has been had❤️🍏🇺🇸🗽Read more
