New York, New York: So good we visited twice

Again with the New York thing? Yep.

On our second trip to Gotham:-

  1. We stayed at the über trendy YOTEL;
  2. Enjoyed fabulous burgers with fabulous beer (Brooklyn Ale, ShackMeister Ale and McSorley’s Pale Ale);
  3. Saw the sights we didn’t last time (Ground Zero, Top of the Rock, Greenwich Village, a daytime Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge);
  4. We walked the High Line;
  5. We shopped like a pack of wolves;
  6. I indulged my half-marathon training schedule with two runs over Central Park;
  7. Joe had a skateboard lesson;
  8. Eve got a new hair do;
  9. Eve and Mrs K went ice skating in Central Park;
  10. We did all of the above under cloudless skies;
  11. We saw Orlando Bloom and David Byrne (not at the same time);
  12. I gasped at the Batmobile waiting at traffic lights;
  13. Joe and I went to the Paul Pope exhibition at MOCCA;
  14. We got arty at MOMA;
  15. Heard “LOVE your accents” twice;
  16. And had our last meal at Carnegie Diner (our favourite).
  17. Pictures on Flickr, and Facebook if you’d like to see the full gory details.
