Saturday, December 23rd
Saturday was our last day in NYC and we hadn’t had bagels yet. So we stopped at Brown’s Bagels before getting on with our morning. Pretty good bagels, but they put a ton of cream cheese on their bagels and maybe that’s the way they prefer it up there. However, all of us ended up scraping half of the cream cheese off because it was too much.
We spent probably an hour or so at Top of the Rock. Once we were done there we decided to subway it to the Bronx since the boys, mainly Drew wanted to check out Yankee Stadium. We walked around the outside a bit and then decided to see how much it would be for a tour. It was $25/person, which Drew said that’s expensive, we don’t have to do that, but Rob was like you only live once, we’re gonna do it!
When we were done walking around seeing the highlights, they took us up to the museum which houses Yankees’ storied history through exhibits of historic artifacts. Championship rings and trophies, Babe Ruth bats and uniforms are just a few things you’ll see in the museum.
After we finished with the tour we were ready to eat lunch. I had really wanted to get pictures of the Brooklyn Bridge, so we got on the subway and went that way. We ate a late lunch at Clark’s Diner in Brooklyn before walking over to the bridge. This place ended up being very expensive. They nickel and dime you for everything including refills on drinks.
DUMBO nickname for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass is the neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. They say this an area you don’t want to be in at dark. However, it was lovely during the day. If you travel to NYC, I highly recommend venturing out of Manhattan and seeing some of the other burroughs.
One of the perks of staying in an airbnb is that they will often let you keep your luggage in there until you’re ready to leave. So we rode the subway back and got our luggage. Actually before we got our luggage, we stopped back by Macy’s as well as some other souvenir shops to pick up some NYC garb.
If you’ve never been to NYC, I highly recommend it. Going at Christmas is a must do as well. It is so magical and beautifully decorated. I loved it even though it got crazy crowded near the end of our trip.
