We all have sore feet tonight! Today was our big walking day. Gram arrived from Memphis last night, so she got to walk out into Times Square with us this morning. First stop was The Cake Boss cafe - I think it's the closest door you can walk into after walking out of Port Authority Bus Terminal. We all chose delicious and way Times-Square-overpriced-sweets :) Then, we walked east and Gram got to check out all the Times Square madness. We didn't leave the crowds, but did leave the utter chaos as we headed East on 42nd to the Main Branch of the New York City Public Library.
We kept walking down 42nd St and toured Grand Central Station (largest train station in the world!) which is amazingly gorgeous inside. Then we walked just another block to the Chrysler Building and checked out this art-deco icon.
Some legs needed resting after this walk, so we took a subway north and got out at the Apple Store. Gram took the boys to wander while I walked ZB across the street to Central Park. Rock climbing and seeing the ducks in The Pond were on her agenda.
The kids were not impressed with the Apple store, and they shortly joined us in the park. We found a big playground, where Clay and Reed rock-climbed, while Gram put her feet up for a while and read a book, and ZB loved another chance to play!
Tomorrow it's down to the Southern end of the island to see the Statue of Liberty! See you then, Julie
