Well the weather was just as predicted for this Tuesday our last day in New York. Pretty darn crappy. But there was so much we still wanted to see!
We decided to save our legs and get on the subway towards Central Park where the museum of Natural History lives. Ok we'll when we arrived the line was quite big so we decided a little walk through the park while the crowd subsides. On our way through the park we bumped into a tv pilot shoot of The Mysteries of Laura - starring Deborah Messing. That was quite a shock and I couldn't tear myself away from trying to get a glimpse of stardom.
Well turned out I was a little wrong about the queue to the museum. We should have gone when we first arrived. On our return to the museum the line was 200 deep at one entrance and the same at each corner. Gee how many people could actually fit in this building. I guess they all heard about the weather today.
So we passed on the idea and went searching for the High Line - a park which has been created from an old raised railway line which serviced the meatpacking district of NY. They were threatening to remove it and some people saved it and turned it into a park. It's really very nice preserving some good history of NY still retaining the railway tracks and having added some reclined beach type chairs which have their own railway wheels so you can be as close or as far as you like from your friends. It would be a great place to stop and read a book. Unfortunately today those seats were wet from the awesome clouds above.
On our way back on the subway we popped by Grand Central Station - that one from soooo many movies. Wow what a beautiful station. So much marble work in New York. It was a lovely station with shops, cafes & many many people.
2pm we headed back to the pod to collect our bags & head to the airport L.A bound for almost our journey home.
