Last time we visited New York, it was the hottest week ever and we tried to spend as much time as possible in air conditioning. And so we didn't give Central Park the time it deserved. This trip, we were blessed with beautiful mild temperatures (when we booked the trip, I was worried about below freezing temps and snow up to my knees!) We got a perfectly sunny, warm-for-December day to explore Central Park. We walked around, people watched from a bench in The Mall, and ate roasted peanuts by Bethesda Fountain. It was a perfect day.
We kept our eyes peeled for Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass but I am sad to report we saw zero famous people (real or fictional) all week. Actually, Mike would not agree with that statement. If you read Part One, you know we bumped into some pretty important UNC people.
To close out our adventure in Uptown, we went to a bar on the Upper West Side for trivia night and WON! We named ourselves Team Canada, in case we didn't seem touristy enough with our map and camera.
Since there are already a ton of photos in this post, I will stop here and next time I'll chat about Downtown and Midtown. There is just so much to do in New York that's impossible to capture it all in one sitting and I so love looking back at these posts to relive our favourite vacations.
Thanks for reading!
