Our day started at Grand Central Station with a look around this beautiful old building then a breakfast stop to fortify us for the morning!
A walk up to the beautiful New York Public Library and Craig took the kids off to nearby Bryant Park for the kids to have a run around, meanwhile Claire, Marty and I snuck off in search of coffee and a delicious one we did find!!!
Bryant Park is another beautiful park with plenty of activities on offer, table tennis and reading corners for kids to read books in. You could easily waste hours here!
We walked across Park Avenue to 5th Avenue in search of FAO Schwarz toy store… As expected chaos and unfortunately as they are closing in 10 days stock was low but we did manage to see the Big Piano Tom Hanks played in Big!
The Nimmos had to head back to their hotel to start packing for the next part of their adventure so we headed back Downtown to South Ferry to do our helicopter ride… Craig’s the same weand my birthday present!
Super excitement!! Helicopter pilot Brandon took us out around the Statue of Liberty up along Manhattan and circle up over the George Washington Bridge. It was a beautifully clear day, one Brandon said he sees once or twice every couple of weeks… So we picked the day well! It was a spectacular sight and another top highlight for all of us!
Regrouped with the Nimmos for drinks and our final dinner of the trip!! A lovely Italian restaurant called Amarona on 9th and 47th Street. We all got to share our highlights and weird things we’d seen on the trip, a great way to finish!
It’s going to be a very quiet last day for us tomorrow!
