Last Day

Our last full day in New York was great. We woke up and got a great breakfast at George's, a restaurant that opened in 1950 and was completely destroyed on 9.11. They decided to rebuild and even made it bigger than before. I love how everything has such history in New York. After that we went shopping in SoHo and got some coffee over by NYU. Then we took a train over to Brooklyn and walked the Brooklyn bridge back over to Manhattan. Here are a few pictures from the bridge:




We then hopped on another train and went for a walk in Central Park, swung by the famous Macy's store on 34th st, and then got some more coffee on the way back to the apartment. I can't begin to describe how many Starbucks there are on Manhattan. And its a good thing too, it was freezing. I know Starbucks does well everywhere but I never saw one without a line the entire time we were there.

That night we had reservations another celebrity chef's restaurant, Craftsteak, owned by Tom Colicchio. Oh my gosh, it was incredible. Without a doubt the best meal we had on our trip, which is saying a lot considering the restaurants we visited. Definitely a place to check out if you're ever in New York or Las Vegas. After dinner we headed over to Rockefeller Center to end the night with a little ice skating.

We went there on Saturday with Jennifer and Andrew during their engagement shoot and it was so crowded you couldn't move. Luckily it was a lot less crowded on Tuesday.
Wednesday we had lunch in Chinatown at a great little restaurant we found earlier in the week and then walked up to SoHo again for a little more shopping an coffee. That afternoon we flew home and had a wonderful experience similar to our last time leaving New York, complete with 3 hours on the runway before takeoff, engine problems, missed connections and having to land at LAX instead of Orange County.

Oh well it was still a great trip. Check back Monday for some images from tomorrow's wedding... should be good!
