New York Day 4..Top of the rock









Dunkin Donuts / water taxi / views of manhattan / 9/11 memorial / battery park / brooklyn bridge / statue of liberty / Rockefeller center / top of the rock / yummy cocktail / chicken ceaser salad / hotel lobby 

Oh my writing these posts are giving me serious withdrawal symptoms from the big apple aswell as some amazing memories. So day 4 was a relaxed but amazing day. We got up uber early to walk down to the harbor to hop onto the new York water taxi. It was amazing to see the Manhattan skyline from afar, the taxi took us to the 9/11 memorial which was harrowing but worthwhile to see the beautiful fountains that have been built in memory of all those that lost their lives on that tragic day. Of course a wander around the business district meant being bombarded by men with knock off designer bags (i sadly found it amusing seeing men walk up to people and undo their suitcases to see the obvious rip offs ha). The taxi also took us to Brooklyn bridge aswell as the statue of liberty. After a spot of lunch in Dunkin Donuts (i may have an addiction), and some serious shopping we decided to take a trip to the top of the rock (Rockefeller center). I completely preferred this to the empire state, as we were able to see all the major landmarks in Manhattan including central park.
Being the chilled day that it was we spent the evening in the hotel, getting to know the rather hilarious bar man Eddie who made sure we left very much tipsy, as well as being ridiculously full from the amazing food.
