The New York finale is really simple, here are some of my favorite photos and views of New York.
The park is so large we only saw a small part of it. We had amazing weather both days. The boys visited the Central Park Zoo where the Polar Bear was the star. There was a great sense of community and fun here. I also loved the statues at one of the entrances of the zoo.
The High Line
This was a great (new-ish) place that used to be a railroad track above the factories in the meat packing district. It is now ~ 2 mile walk through gardens, some vendors (like coffee, ice pops, and food items) and various art pieces. This is my favorite place in New York.
To get a good view of the city on such a wonderful day, we took advantage of the views at the top of Rockefeller center. We were lucky with the atmosphere which was buzzing as it was Puerto Rico Day and a parade was occurring. At the top we saw the Empire State building on one side and a great view of central park expanse on the other (wow is all I can say).
Grand Central Station
What an amazing Building, even in the pouring rain it was captivating. Celebrating its 100 anniversary, it is still in its glory. Look at the amazing ceiling with its celestial paintings.
We were very lucky with the atmosphere in Times Square when we were visiting. Obviously we went at night to get the full impact of all the lights….but the night we went there was a viewing party going on. In the middle of Times Square you could sit and watch the Tony awards which was broadcasting on an extra-large screen – there must have been thousands of people out that night.
I hope you enjoyed our view of New York.
Have a great weekend!!! Linking up with Amanda Jean @ CrazyMomQuilts.
