NY Day 3
Our last, full day in the city! What a beautiful Saturday it was; another round of touring, sightseeing, and shopping under the sun in fall’s perfect temperature of 70 degrees. We had breakfast at the Union Square market which reminded me of Detroit’s Eastern Market, just more people. Stalls full of jams, breads, pastries, hot drinks, fruits, vegetables, and flowers aligned the square. The market’s small, quaint town feel juxtaposed the reality of being surrounded by skyscrapers.
After a short stop at Forever 21 Union Square, we had a quick bite to eat at Clark’s then went off to the Highline Bridge where the artsy-indie population congregate to. Apparently ’tis true since the first sight I noticed was a dance crew leaning and abstract posing on the side of a brick building for a photo shoot. The Highline used to be a railroad but is now used as a commuter’s access way. Parts of the train tracks are still visible although most of it is covered with greenery. Portions of the bridge has been turned into street viewing spurs where passerbys can stop and view the city from above.
After getting lost, being caught in the rain, and excitedly catching a glimpse of the Fashion Institute of Technology’s exterior, we made it back to the apartment for some R&R before the Hop On Hop Off Bus’s night tour. No wonder NYC is dubbed as the “city that never sleeps.” It’s like another city at night! Our thick accent tour guide reported history while we drove through Manhattan, crossed over to Brooklyn, and back to Times Square for the second night in a row which is totally fine- I don’t think I’d ever tire of it.
