Day 4 was so packed I broke up the post into two parts. For Part 1, click here - NYC Trip 2015 - Day 4, Part 1
|Residential side street in Park Slope|
|Another residential shot, love the blooms!|
Surprise! Sunset over Manhattan across the East River. Just stunning. Needless to say we stayed here and soaked it all in until there was nothing left to soak in, and I realized I was under dressed for a late spring evening with a breeze coming in off the East River.
|Check it out! View of Manhattan from Grand Ferry Park in Brooklyn|
|Empire State Building and Chrysler off to the far right|
|Me and my sweetheart (thank you strangers for taking this!)|
We walk down Grand Street for a ways, and stumble across a little shop called Insiders1 (check it out at www.Insiders1.com) where a nice woman and her husband sell made-in-brooklyn leather purses and such with photography she's taken around the city. Very cool place and I may now have a red leather purse with a photo of Patience (or is it Fortitude?), one of the lions perched outside the NY Public Library. It's getting close to 8:45 by this time, so we head on our way. Below is a shot of what I thought looked pretty cool, Post sunset but not quite all the way dark. Williamsburg Bridge all lit up on the right, and Lower Manhattan all lit up on the left, in the center a large mural of what I have no idea, but all together it looked quite cool to me. It looks like I stopped in the middle of the road to take this, but I assure you that I broke no pedestrian laws, and this street had an island in the middle of the street. Really, it does. Broadway and Bedford streets in Brooklyn.
|We arrive! None to soon, I've worked up quite an appetite.|
We order appetizers - the shrimp cocktail and bacon. Yes, just a slab of bacon. It was as good as it looks!
|The main event!|
|Zac totally posed for this, he would never actually gnaw on the bone. I was tempted....|
After dinner we head back to Manhattan via the subway, and head over to the area just East of Central Park near Lex and 60th St. We got a nice view of Bloomingdale's at night!
We do have a plan, and that plan is Serendipity 3 and a giant frozen hot chocolate. Yes, we just scarfed down a huge porterhouse steak. But we have walked a lot, and it's a vacation after all. So onward to Serendipity 3!
So here we are, doing a quintessential NYC thing and having dessert at Serendipity 3, me with a frozen hot chocolate and Zac with a sundae. An insane chocolate-y gooey dripping and incredibly delicious sundae! It was SOOOO good, perfect ending to yet another perfect day on our NYC adventure of 2015!!
Next up - our last full day in New York. Three words - Letterman, Le Bernardin. Stay tuned!!
