Day 3

New York

snow -4 °C

Day 3: Midtown New York

Rockefeller Center
Top of the Rock (AMAZING views of the beautiful city)
Rockefeller Ice Skating
NBC Studios (missed out on getting on tv by about 10 minutes!!! back we go tomorrow morning!!)
St. Patricks Cathedral
5th Avenue (HUGE, HUGE, HUGE amount of shopping we can never afford, but so beautiful all the same....the amount of fur coats in this one area could keep an army warm)
Turtle Bay/ Manhattan Business District (this is the area of massive flashy buildings, expensive car yards and men in suits....dad there are suitable husbands in this area!!!)
Bloomingdales (over-rated I must say, is alot like Chadstone at home, but fun to go to see all the same)
Trump Building
The Plaza (Beautiful and the home of Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl Tahns informs me)
New York Library (This was the most special place of the day, so old and intricate....LOVE)
Grand Central Station (Spotted T,T & K at Grand Central Station.....unless you are a hard core GG fan like us 3 dorks this will mean nothing but boy did we have some fun here! You kinda wanted to tell the locals who were rushing around that they should come and see Parliment Station so they can apprerciate the beautiful station they have!! So So Soooo pretty)
Pershing Square Bride (Tammy says its in lots of movies but I didnt really recognise it??)

Another day of walking for hours on end, unfortunately I screwed my knee, the same injury I got running a few weeks ago (I probably should have got that looked at as today I limped around for about 5+ hours) this has left me blogging in the living room whilst Tahns is out to dinner with friends because I can barely stand on it and need to rest it so I can be back in the game tomorrow :(
Every day Tahns, Tam and I get asked if we're Londoners which we usually take offence too, but today I was a total whinging pom about my stupid leg and the fact that I looked like a gimp in 5th Ave New York of all places!! But I soldiered on and still saw everything on the to-do list for today!! Yay!
Today was jammed packed again full of sight seeing but the most memorable would have to be the NY Library and Grand Central Station, both of which absolutely flawed us!! These two places would have to be the most beautiful I have seen as of yet, I took loads of photo's, but dont even think they will do it justice!! For all of those reading this who are obsessed with Gossip Girl like we are....today would be your dream day...expensive clothes, expensive cars, expensive furs and most importantly expensive plastic surgery!!

Hopefully we will get on the NBC show tomorrow morning when they film the weather segments outside!! Look out for us (the 3 eskimos not used to this ridiculously cold weather)
