Welcome to New York! Part 4

Happy Monday!

Welcome to Part 4 of my NYC recap!  I hope to have this wrapped up by Thursday, but if you missed the first 3, you may find them here:

(Part One – Part Two – Part Three)

The New York City Library is stunning.

image

Behind the library is the quaint, yet beautiful, Bryant Park.  I loved all of the little parks scattered around the concrete jungle, but I don’t think I took a picture.

Ok so we went back to the hotel and quickly transformed from “we’ve been walking for hours and partaking in a windy bus tour” to “we’re going to the theater” (I recommend saying that last one in a fancy voice!)

image

If you’re ever in NYC, you HAVE to see a Broadway Show!  Absolutely nothing like it!  So magical!

Anyway, we walked by the theater on our way to dinner.  Lindsay found this Ramen place she wanted to try.  Well, we finally got there and the line was so long we didn’t have time to wait – and kind of didn’t want to wait.  But, it’s a Friday night in NYC and we were hungry.  So, we went to a really good Japanese restaurant we had passed on our way to the Ramen place…

image

…and after being seated in a community booth type spot, asked if we could move to a high top with electrical outlet access!  Yep – we charged anywhere and everywhere!  Since we weren’t in the hotel long enough to reach 100%, we had to use dinner time as a recharge the phones time!

image

We also felt fancy eating sushi in NYC.  Although I had “fake” sushi since it was just a California Roll!  Lindsay had the real stuff.

After dinner it was SHOW TIME!

image

We were lucky enough to visit NYC during Broadway Week and scored a phenomenal deal on our tickets!!

This was our view…

image

And after I took this picture, the seating attendant made a LOUD announcement about NOT taking pictures.  Oops!

So clearly Lindsay decided to be sneaky…

image

And then we followed the rules, no more pictures, but pure AWE over a fantastic show!

Once the show was over, Lindsay ordered our first Uber of the trip:

image

and as we walked out to meet our car, we saw one of the actors!

image

We didn’t join the mob because we had places to go!

image

and since my grandfather makes stained glass everything, including their chandelier, I had to take this picture!

image

It was Serendipity 3 time!  But first we decided we needed some substance, so we split a cheese omelet.

image

Then it was Frozen Hot Chocolate time!

image

I had the Peanut Butter Frozen Hot Chocolate, Lindsay had the original – and yes, it was necessary to split an omelet but have our own dessert. #NoSharingSweets

And while the below picture shows an empty bowl, I must say…I don’t 100% get the hype.  Sure, it was good.  But I wouldn’t stand on line for more than 15-20 minutes for Frozen Hot Chocolate.  Our wait was 20 minutes, so it was fine.  But the people who wait on line for 30+ minutes, NOT WORTH IT!

image

We then took the BEST Uber ride ever back to the hotel.  Sure we were a little over a mile away, but it was dark, and late, and we were EXHAUSTED.  Seriously, I did not want to get out of the car.  A black Lexus SUV with the most luxurious and comfortable seats in the whole wide world.  Kind of wish our Uber driver was my personal chauffer, the car was that comfortable – and as someone who gets car sick, riding in the back of this car did not bother me.

image We returned to the hotel (I’m not sure I’ve ever been so excited to wash my face)

image

to somewhat plan out our next day, and drift off into a sweet NYC slumber!

Part 5 coming tomorrow! 🙂
