Last day! It’s always a little sad for vacation to end, but we were also thrilled to get back home to our babies. We had to be at the airport in the late afternoon, so we did a few last things in the city before heading back to Newark.
We spent some time walking around, and visited Bryant Park and the main branch of the New York City public library, which was beautiful!
From there, we walked to Grand Central Station and took in the sights. It really is pretty awesome to see in person!
After Grand Central, we did something really cool. We took the Roosevelt Island tram over to…you guessed it…Roosevelt Island. The tram is part of the subway system and fare is included with your Metro Card. It crosses the East River taking passengers back and forth from Roosevelt Island. Fun way to get up and see some cool NYC views. You may recognize the tram from movies like Spiderman!
After the tram, we walked just a few short blocks to Serendipity. Frozen hot chocolate? Don’t have to twist my arm! We waited way more than an hour for a table here, but once we got it, we realized they were seating us at what they call “The Movie Table.” Check it out!
After Serendipity, it was back to Jersey City to grab our car, then a stop at a mall in New Jersey before heading to the airport and back home.
What an awesome week!
