NY Day 2

I don’t think we did as much today as we did yesterday, but for some reason we’re both far more tired. I think all the walking is catching up to us! Not as many photos today…just added 47 to the set.

We decided to do the Top of the Rock in the morning, and that turned out to be a really good decision as the weather was wonderful. A little nippy, but sunny and mostly clear. Made for some excellent photos. I think given the choice I’d prefer to go to the top of Rockefeller Center again instead of the Empire State Building. It was really great to see NY from above.

Our next stop was the NBC Studio tour, but since we had a little bit of time in between, we stopped at McDonalds for a quick lunch. And my goodness was it ever quick. Honestly, I ordered, and barely had the change in my pocket by the time someone brought the food to the counter. It was insane. The place was also overrun with kids. Seems like there’s tons of field trips going on. The studio tour itself was kinda neat, but we couldn’t take any photos. We got to see Conan O’Brien’s studio, as well as the SNL studio. My first and lasting impression of Conan’s studio is that it is absolutely tiny. It looks ten times bigger on TV!

Our plan was then to go pickup tickets for the City Lights cruise. Which we attempted to do. The instructions on the marketing material are absolutely useless, and it took us forever to find the place. When we did, the ticket office was deserted. There wasn’t anyone in sight. This is despite the fact that it should have been open for another three hours or so. We gave up on that, and headed back to Macy’s for some shopping. I have never seen that many shoes in one place before! We also checked out the main Post Office building (to get stamps) before heading to Times Square for dinner at Ruby Tuesday. We checked out Bryant Park again, which had a special event going on tonight – something related to The Simpsons Movie.

Other than that we just wandered around a bit, saw the Rockefeller tree at night and the light show on the Saks building. We’re back at the hotel a bit earlier tonight, to get some rest for tomorrow – Broadway! We’re going to see Wicked.
