New York - Day 3

We started our day with a nice run in Central Park - we got 3km in.
What a great way to start the day!
Brooklyn top of buildings - like on TV!
We headed to Brooklyn today.  Wasn’t that exciting of a place - we had to wait and wait and wait for the bus which took too long which in turn didn’t give us much time to do much.  

We did have time for the following:
pizza under the bridge at Grimaldi’s - delicious pizza!
1 hour wait for the bus
a short 15 minute walk (because of the stupid bus wait) in Botanical garden - boring anyways - no flowers!?
30 minute wait for the other bus.

We then got off the last stop in Brooklyn so we could walk across the famous Brooklyn Bridge.  It was worth the wait for buses!  Beautiful views!

Once we got back in Manhattan, we took the bus to the hotel where we had dinner in a vietnamese restaurant (yes, I actually ate there - wasn’t very good but I ate).  We were supposed to do the night tour today but I’m a little sick of buses after the day… so we opted to go “on Top of the Rock” instead.  You go up 70 floors to the top of the Rockefeller Center to view New York.  It’s big and beautiful at night too!

I think that was it for the day!
