We did everything in day 2. Like literally walked across all of Manhattan.
We started with the High Line, an awesome park/garden thats on old railway tracks above the city. We walked the length of it, taking little breaks whenever we felt like doing some people watching.
From here we walked through Chelsea, Greenwich, SoHo, Chinatown, The Meat Packing District and Little Italy on our way to the Brooklyn Bridge. And of course we walked across the bridge while we were there.
If that didn’t make you tired, you’re a stronger person than I am. I was exhausted, and so we hit up the Staten Island Ferry to get a view of the Statute of Liberty and to have a rest.
And as if that wasn’t enough, we then headed straight to the top of the rock. Otherwise known as the observation platform on the roof of 30 Rock.
As we were passing through Times Square to head back to the hotel, we noticed a larger crowd of people, more than usual, and something being broadcast on a large screen. And then it clicked – the Tony Awards! We had unintentionally come to New York during the Tonys. We stayed to watch with the crowd for a bit, because it’s not often you find yourself surrounded by a group of like-minded people, and then watched the rest from the comfort of our room.
