New York City Day 3

We started out our day by getting a bagel at Bagel Works. Located on First Ave, between 66th and 67th. I later learned they have one of the best flagels (Flat Bagels) on the Upper East Side. With a flagel in hand we hailed a taxi and headed to explore Central Park.

We didn’t get much time at Central Park because it was so cold but we took a few minutes to go see the statue of Balto and the area surrounding the Bethesda Fountain.

Next I had to humor my husband and go to both the Apple store and the Microsoft store both located along 5th Avenue. It was fun looking around the stores and seeing the newest technologies. It was also fun getting to watch my husband nerd out in his element.

Marriage is give and take, so next I took my  husband along with me, so that I could recreate a favorite movie moment of mine: Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I loved enjoying my coffee and eating my bagel in front of the beautiful store window. I felt just like Audrey Hepburn!

After some lunch we headed to Rockefeller Center to take the NBC Studio tour. We got to see where they film The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt. We would highly recommend this tour, especially if you’re a TV buff like me.  It’s awesome to see the behind the scenes workings that go into making television. I was shocked to see how many cameras are in each of the studios. After the tour we went up to the observation deck, Top of the Rock.

Brian and I bundled up and braved the cold February weather to venture up 70 stories to the Top of the Rock to take in some breathtaking views. You don’t really realize how big New York City is, until you have seen it from above.We were both surprised to see how big central park was.  I know a lot of people, who say you must go to the top of  Empire State Building while in NYC but personally, I like the view from Top of the Rock better because you actually get a view of the Empire State building. We got some pretty awesome pictures from up here and some epic selfies!

To end our night we went to go see Les Miserables on Broadway. It was of course fabulous! The sets, the music and acting were just amazing. We can’t wait to see another one someday (My wish list is Lion King, Wicked and An American in Paris).

After the show we didn’t have plans for dinner, which was a bad move on our part, it was late and we were starving! We ended up eating at an Olive Garden in Times Square and had the best time. We had great service and a great view, it was so much fun to see the lights and people watch!

Brian was quite pleased with our view!
