New York City Day 2


Our second trip into the big city was on a dim and gloomy day. We had a large group (about 12 of us) and a lot we all wanted to see so we hopped on an early morning train and set out to see the city. Some of my favorite memories from our trip were from our train rides! Our conductors seemed to be comedians and kept us laughing for most of our commute.




We started our venture heading out to time square.



Where we saw more blinding billboards than my senses could handle.



And of course everyone wanted to get a group selfie…


We passed by Radio City Music Hall….


on the way over to Rockefeller Center. I really wish I had seen this during Christmas, seeing all the decorations and the giant Christmas Tree are on my bucket list so I am definitely going to be making a trip back.






I loved these fountains surrounded by all the beautiful spring flowers.

 
Next on our list was heading over to Central Park ( I will do a separate post on this since I took 9,000 photos of all the scenic views).
 
We passed by so many amazing churches. The architecture of these buildings always amazes me; I wish we had more buildings like these in Houston.



We made a quick stop at the plaza as some of the other girls and I were dying to get a peek inside. During this portion of the day the boys kept quoting Home Alone 2 “Contestants on the show Ding Dang Dong stay at the world renown Plaza Hotel…” and “Credit card? You got it”.



The décor and chandeliers were stunning, next time I’m in NYC I will be sure to stop by for afternoon tea so I can take my time soaking in all the grandeur.


By now it had started pouring down so of course my hair was a bit of a hot mess…


Our last stop of the day was Grand Central Station; I was pretty excited about this stop as I had been looking forward to testing out the whispering gallery.


I was surprised with how grand it actually was a beautiful building with the most amazing mural of the stars on the ceiling. I really wish my pictures had come out more clearly because it was quite stunning.


Like I said before I was pretty much on a mission to find and experience the whispering gallery.

This is a little area in front of the famous oyster bar where two people can talk to each other from opposite sides of the tunnel just by whispering into the corner of the wall.


I was so elated that this really worked! You can hear the other person as if they were standing right by you! If you ever find yourself in grand central take a moment to experience this interesting feature!





We ended the day here and hopped a train back to Summit New Jersey for our friend’s rehearsal dinner. For such a short and dreary day I was happy we were able to see so much!
