Today is our last full day in New York. We headed to Little Collins Street for another good coffee and breakfast and then walked the streets to Central Park. The streets in this part of Uptown are absolutely beautiful - you are talking Park Avenue etc so its lifestyles of the rich and famous in this area. We hired some bikes for 3 hours and rode around Central Park. Initially we didn't think we would use the full 3 hours but of course once you stop a few times the time flies. To say the park is absolutely beautiful us an understatement. We got to the top end of he park and grabbed a hot dog, as you do in Central Park, and enjoyed the scenery. We stopped at the Loeb Boat House, Strawberry Fields etc etc just magical. We dropped the bikes off and walked back to our hotel and rested for a bit then headed on the subway to 23rd Street to walk The High Line. The is a disused train track that has been converted into a park land. We walked through some beautiful streets which was a lot less congested than Times Square, so we enjoyed the walk. We made it to the High Line and didn't think which way to walk and just started. We ended up further downtown. When I saw the Statue of Liberty I knew we had headed the wrong way. We made it to the end brought an ice cream and walked the Meat Packing district. Just wished I had more time to explore this place, it was amazing. We stumbled on to Chelsea Market so while the boys were in the Apple Store I managed to have a wonder through. We then caught the subway back to 42nd Street. The boys went back to the hotel and I went to Macy's for some last minute shopping. While walking there you could hear helicopters above which was unusual. I knew something wasn't right when I looked at the Empire State Building and there were two helicopters hovering. When I got back to the room I got on to google and it appears a man with a meat cleaver had attacked a police officer and they shot him down. There were times when in NY when I felt a little uncomfortable but thankfully we never came across anything like this or anything else. I guess the heightened security and police presence make you constantly aware and think that anything could happen. For tea we went to Virgils BBQ and Grill for some good old fashioned BBQ meat. Ribs, collard greens, corn bread and chips - the size of the meal was huge as was to be expected but it was delicious. We then headed up the road to a bar where we watched the Jets v Buffalo game for awhile enjoying another beer. I'll find it hard to go back to wine when back home, the only reason I'm drinking it here is because it's hot and the wine in the US is terrible - Chardonnay yuck. It was a great last day in NY city, tomorrow we head home.
