Christmas Travel 2012 – Day 10 in NYC

Brooklyn Bridge

Brooklyn Bridge

Weather cleared up, Ashley and I left go spend our last day wandering farther from Times Square area.  We first took the subway down to High Street via the A Train.  Ashley was very excited about the A train. =)  From there, we walked in the ‘correct’ direction across Brooklyn Bridge back into Manhattan.  Ashley caught her first sight of the Statue of Liberty shortly after we started crossing.

 

After making it across all the black ice safely, we hopped back into the subway toward Battery Park for a closer view of Lady Liberty.  A hungry squirrel greeted us off the train in search of food, which we left alone.  Following this was a trip up to 86th street on the east side of Central Park.  Then started our adventurous walk, zig zagging west and east, picking up a bag of candied cashes and a pretzel on the way down.

FAO Schwarz

FAO Schwarz

Before long, we were on the SE corner headed towards a very packed FAO Schwarz.  Inside, our attention turned to 4-figure cost plushes taller than us, expensive prints (one of which I absolutely loved), and plenty of Legos.  We made visit to the giant piano, and looked around some more before leaving for a very late lunch.  I voted for White Castle, and off we went.  We called it a good day and went back to the hotel to pack.
