Welcome to the 5th instalment of this mini series. If you have missed any of the previous instalments then check out days 1, 2, 3 & 4, and 5 before continuing. If you are up to speed then carry on as normal.
Day 6 in New York City was another free day for us, so we split up. Myself and Emily had a few places we wanted to go back to and Will, Tony and Louise had their own plan for the day. Myself and Emily started out by heading back to Grand Central Terminal for a few extra pictures and another nosey round. We didn’t hang around too long before making our way over towards Hell’s Kitchen and B&H. B&H is a large camera shop and as a photography I naturally wanted to check it out, I was thoroughly impressed by the variety of stock they had and all the live displays you could play with. Sadly I didn’t need anything so didn’t buy anything, I didn’t want to buy for buyings sake, but maybe next time I visit there will be something I need.
From B&H we wanted to return to Chelsea Markets for some lunch, Emily chose and we have savoury crepes from Bar Suzette Crêperie. We both chose the Pesto Chicken and it was delicious! The crêpes were that big we didn’t have any space for a sweet one as well, oops. After another nosey round Chelsea Markets we took a stroll over to Union Square, where we stumbled upon a farmers market. Emily grabbed some snack from a bakery stall to take with us for the rest of the day. Emily had read that there was an Australian chocolate cafe nearby called Max Brenner, me and Emily went rather frequently whilst we lived in Australia so thought it fit to swing by. It was exactly how we remembered and we were so glad we went.
As we were only around the corner from the Flatiron we made a quick, passing, visit just to see it again. The same happened with the Empire State Building as we walked up 5th avenue back towards the hotel. By this point we had been out all afternoon, wandering around Manhattan rather aimlessly. Our main activity of the day was only planned for 7:30pm and that was to visit the Top Of The Rock at the Rockefeller Centre. Before we got back to the hotel Emily and myself had a drinks stop at a rooftop bar called 230 Fifth Rooftop Bar, Emily had a cocktail and I had a Bud Light (never again) as we admired the Empire State Building as the sun started to set (first picture).
We regrouped with Emily’s family back at the hotel before swiftly heading back out to the Top Of The Rock. We had been told to do this at night so we could see the Empire State Building lit up. I actually prefer the view from the Top Of The Rock because you get the view of the ESB as well as Central Park, which is beautiful when lit up at night. Although not as high as the ESB it was still rather chilly when at the top, but luckily there were glass screens to hide behind. We spent a good few hours up there admiring the view before heading back down and to our hotel for our final night in NYC.
