I can't quite believe I'm saying this, but I'm home from New York. Technically we got home on Friday but after an awful flight and being awake for over 26 hours, I had some much needed sleep to catch up on.
I thought I would bombard you with some of my holiday photos today. We had an amazing time, despite it hitting -17 degrees at one point - we were not prepared for that kind of cold. We did all the regular touristy things like Empire State Building, Rockerfella Centre, Times Square, Central Park etc. As well as some non-traditional things like hunting down Katz Deli, where the infamous scene from When Harry Met Sally was filmed (my all time favourite film) - they do the BEST pastrami sandwich in the World. We also headed to The High Line which is an old railway converted into a public park. It sits above the city and is weirdly peaceful despite the traffic below.
A few of my highlights were, walking the Brooklyn Bridge, the views from Rockerfella Centre and taking the Staten Island ferry past the Statue of Liberty - we got some amazing views and it didn't cost a penny. Without a doubt I would recommend the Top of the Rock over Empire State any day, the views are incredible and the fact you get to see Empire State in the skyline is pretty amazing.
Anyway, I will leave it there for now - I do have a NYC shopping haul coming up soon, but for now I need to go do some more relaxing.
