Time is flying by like crazy here in NYC and even though I’m walking millions of blocks every day, I’m not tired at all and could go on for the whole day. There’s just so much to see on the streets. So many shops, buildings, museums, statues, restaurants, cafes… I would love to go inside each and every one of them. Even though there’s not time to do that now, I will definitely do it next year when I’m coming back to possibly live here for a while. Let’s see what the future holds for me 🙂
Last two days were filled with sightseeing and eating great food, so let’s start with the morning. Every morning we’ve been eating at Le Pain Quotidien, next to our hotel. Food there is 100% organic, homemade and super fresh. Everything there tastes like heaven! After the breakfast, on the day 4 we went to Madame Tussaud’s museum close to Times square. It was great and fun experience. Almost all of the wax statues look so real that for instance Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Jimi Hendrix looked as if they were going to start moving at any moment 🙂
After the museum we went for a stroll down the Times square. For lunch we went to legendary pizza joint called Two Boots Pizza at Grand central and had mix of three slices of different toppings. They were so delicious!! Whole afternoon after the lunch was reserved for some more shopping in which I found some cute pieces at Free People store and some more cosmetics at Sephora.
Day 5 began the same way as every morning here at Le Pain Quotidien 🙂 After the power breakfast we went to Central Park ZOO and have enjoyed the “company” of sea lions, penguins, polar bear, frogs, snakes, parrots, etc. It was just lovely! Then it was naturally a time to take a short walk through Central Park and sit down for an ice cream.
We had lunch in Soho at Cipriani Downtown and I found that place to be absolutely amazing. The food was so tasty and fresh there, totally authentic Italian restaurant. Their lemon tart as desert was just wonderful!
Afterwards we did some shopping at Soho which has great mix of bohemian vibe and high fashion stores. I liked this neighbourhood very much.
Here’re some photos with which I’ve documented days 4&5.
