Day 5 and 6 in New York

May 1, 2017.  Day 5:  On the last day of our trip, we packed up and waved good-bye to the hotel that housed us for the last four nights.  It was a bittersweet moment because New York had been so fun but it was time to go home.  We looked up our route and because we wanted to stop in Flushing before we headed to the airport for our late afternoon flight. (where Flushing was close to the LGA airport anyway), we decided on taking the Long Island Rail Road to Flushing from Penn Station.  It was only Continue reading

Day 4 and seeing Central Park 🙂

April 30, 2017: Day 4.  For our last full day in New York City, we tried to make the most of it by visiting more of the bookmarked places on our map.  It was a cloudy and somewhat windy day; a much bigger weather change when compared to the past two days of sunshine and heat.

New York in Spring 2017 Day 3: Broadway, Best Cheesecake, Carlo’s Bakery

 Times Square, New York

Day 3 of our New York trip!

April 29, 2017:  Day 3 of our New York trip began with a long-awaited desire to watch a musical on Broadway!  We hopped on the subway in the early morning around 9:30 and dashed towards Times Square where the home of Broadway was.  Seeing Times Square and the surrounding big box stores, lights, and billboards was a surreal moment after having only seen it in movies or photos before.  It was every bit as exciting as I imagined it to be.

Two friends had told me about the discounted musical tickets available at TKTS.  This ticket merchant sold heavily Continue reading
