These next two pictures were taken as we passed through Northeast Maryland. Google maps tells me this is Chesapeake Bay
New York City!!Radisson Lexington. Once again, we got very lucky and were able to check in early. We put down our bags and got organized before setting out for our first excursion: a trip to Soho! We walked to the subway and took the 6 train to Bleecker St. The hustle and bustle was already a bit overwhelming for my husband and we found some respite in some areas of Soho.
Yes, one of the things we had to do was go to the "Friends" apartment building. Well, at least the building they used for the exterior shots. There was another couple taking pictures as well so we didn't feel like complete dorks.
We walked up 5th Ave looking for another place to have dinner and couldn't find a thing. Weird right? Maybe we were just on the wrong block but there was nothing. We found a deli looking place but their grill was closed so we ate chips and drank water. Awesome dinner. We were on our way to the Empire State Building Observation Deck and I told Chris we should leave now so we could be up there for sunset.
HAHAHHAHAHHA. Another yeah right. It took us a bit over an hour to get to the top. Lines, lines and lines. It was like Disneyland in there. But our view from the top make up for the lines and annoying British teenagers.
Tomorrow, we would see Manhattan from the Top of the Rock, take the WTC Tour downtown and go see Book of Mormon the Musical in the evening.
