Our five days in New York felt more like two weeks in the nicest possible way. Each day we must have walked several miles and visited numerous sights. The best thing we did was to buy a three day New York Pass and the second was hubby’s careful planning of our action packed trip. Here is just a taste of day 2:
We danced in the snow in Central Park (acca Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers) and got well and truly lost ~ we were told the park was designed that
Managing to traverse safely back over the park to the subway with the help of directions from a helpful New Yorker (we found the people we more than willing to help out when we didn’t understand the subway system for example) we visited the Cathedral of St John the Divine, the largest in the world. Our detour was certainly rewarded. This multi-faith place of worship had a lovely atmosphere, its imposing columns towering above us as we sat and contemplated for a while – a moment of calm in a manic city! Here’s a photo of the sculpture of a Phoenix hanging above the nave!
Choosing New York’s most famous icon to complete our day we waited until the sun was setting whilst on the top of The Empire State Building, watching the city come to life and light – magical!
