Girls Trip - Day 3, New York
We started our day with bagels, cream cheese and coffee. The way most New Yorkers do I would guess. After breakfast we headed to the High Line. The High Line is an elevated park that they have converted from an abondoned section of the New York Central Railroad. We walked through the park for several blocks and came down into the Chelsea Market. This block long and block wide market is chock full of little shops, markets and eateries. We enjoyed some authentic Thai food for lunch and continued to shop through the market finding all kinds of treasures.
It was such a beautiful day we decided to take the subway down to South Ferry and the Staten Island Ferry terminal. We boarded the Staten Island Ferry for a free ride to the island and back which provided us with great views of Lady Liberty, the south view of the Manhatten skyline, Brooklyn Bridge and Hoboken, New Jersey.
From the ferry we walked to get a picture for Michelle Jones of the Bull on Wall Street. Shane had a fun time photo bombing several serious photographers. We also decided to walk to the 9/11 Memorial Reflecting Pools and Freedom Tower.
Nicolie, as she has done every other day, found us a great place for dinner in Mid Town. This was a truly authentic Italian restaurant and the food was delicious. Rich, the brand new waiter helper, took Shane's bread too soon and told me he was not paid to smile but we finally coaxed a smile out of him.

Shane Photo Bombing
This man is going to love this photo - nice Shane
So far this sounds like my favorite day! I loved the photo bombs with the Wall St Bull, Shane's expression made me laugh out loud! Plus, I thought it was quite ironic that you Snapped me the Bull's back side, on what just happen to be the biggest market drop since the 2011 correction/recession,,,.hahaha,,, Looks like fun, that for sharing! :))
I see you've had another superb day of sight seeing. Also , great photo bombing by Shane!
