Kate finally found her New York sleeping rhythm and slept 12+ hours so a late start happened today. We opted to head for Century 21 which is the outlet department store in NY directly opposite Ground Zero. Proud to say Jack proved to be the Subway guru and successfully manoeurved us around NY today! Has brunch consisting of pizza and/or nachos both interesting in cooking!!! After brunch we braved the Century 21 where it did my head in in it's lack of organization and mess. I couldn't find a thing so we headed off back to JCPenny, Macy's etc at 34 th street. While the crowds were even greater there was a little more organization to finding things. A couple of hours saw Christmas presents purchased for all as well as our first venture into GAP .... One I 'd like to do again!!
Home we trundled to offload parcels, grab Jack his hot dog from a vendor on a street corner to catch our breath before heading out on a "Night in the Town" tour of New York. This included a visit t Cheksea markets, the meat packing district, the High Line park, a cruise on a water taxi past the Starue of Liberty andi the beautiful sights othe water, a visit to Little Italy and off to Top of the Rock. The guys on the water taxi took a shin to twonAussie kids and w had a great visit I thevwheelroom where we were entertained and educated by the Captain and our tour guide. We also ended with badges for alf if Melbourne to take back courtesy of another Wate Taxi worker!
The knowledge that both James tonight and Heidi have to pass on is amazing! So much info ... Brilliant! The our ended a Top of the Rock where we went and saw th famous Ockefeller Christmas tree and skating rink. The weather has finally started to be more wintery with I hitting 4 degrees a 7.00 pm tonight. Tomorrow is supposed to be 3 degrees so we look forward o some winter but no snow on th card this year ... Maybe in Washington!!!!
