Girls Trip - Day 4, New York
We started our day out with bagles, cream cheese and coffee. Wait. Was that not how yesterday started? It was worth a repeat and today's coffee and bagels were even better. We headed from breakfast to Macy's flagship store on 34th Street for some more shopping. We had to take a spin on the WoMo and WoWo. Since we had pretty much seen everything in Manhattan in the first 3 days we decided we would just stroll some of the most popular neighborhoods; West Village, Greenwich Village, SoHo. We happened upon John's Pizzeria on Bleeker. The pizza was amazing. We popped into several neat little clothing boutiques, deli's, cupcake stores and chocolate shops. We even tried a cronut at Murray's Cheese where they just call it a French Donut. It was delicious and now we have our baseline for French pastries.
In preparation for our next stop Paris, we walked to Washington Square Park to see the arch. I was challenged to a game of chess but let the guy down gently. There was a guy there playing a hand pan. The music was very soothing so we sat in the park for a long time enjoying it and people watching. The most unusual sighting was the girl who was walking with the pigeon on her shoulder and petting it as she walked. For our last dinner and since we have had such great luck with Italian food, we decided to try another Italian restuaruant. It did not disappoint.
We seemed to have slowed our pace a bit and only walked 7 or so miles today.

The WoWo looks fabulous! And I've always wanted to shop at Macy's on 34th for a miracle, you go girls! :))
Ohhhh, I really want one of those gelato popsicles ! Also noticed that the musician was
doing quite well in tips. He must have been making some cool music on the hand pan...
Michelle, thanks for the blog.
