Day 5 was all about filling some gaps from previous days, which meant heading back down to Brooklyn to walk the bridge and to the bottom of mid town for the Flatiron building. We set off early again to make our way down to Brooklyn via the subway and got off at the High Street station by Cadman Plaza Park. A very kind gentleman directed us to the bridge, as even though we were pretty much underneath it we couldn’t figure out which way to walk from the station.
Once on the bridge is was a straight forward walk to the other side, with lots of photo stops along the way. The bridge is just amazing to look at and one of those places where everything make an interesting photo and tells a story without any words, it was also extremely busy with masses of other people doing exactly the same as us. I actually held back from Emily and her family and took my time getting the pictures I wanted, next time I visit I’ll be taking a tripod with me to get some log exposure shots of people going about their business which should look cool.
Once over the bridge we hopped back onto the subway towards Union Square and the Flatiron Building. Upon arriving at Union Square we headed straight towards the Flatiron Building, stopping to nosey in a few shops along the way and a lunch stop in Chipotlé. The Flatiron is another iconic New York landmark that you just have to visit and one of those pictures you just have to re-create for yourself, which is exactly what I did. After everyone had got the pictures they wanted it was time for coffee, and conveniently we found another Le Pain Quotidien cafe to rest for a short while.
After we had ticked the 2 landmarks off our list we meandered our way up Broadway back towards Times Square and the hotel. By this point it was getting towards evening and we all needed to rest our feet, so back to the hotel we went for a lie down. Tea was at the Hard Rock Cafe tonight and went down a treat after such a taxing day on our bodies. Back to the hotel again to call it a night and settle into our food comas.
