L & L Travel Diary: New York Part 2

Our last whole day of our New York escapade was spent with more walking and sightseeing. Our first agenda was to find the original Halal Guys. Since I don't eat lamb, I opted for the Chicken. I can say it is definitely way better than the first one I tried in Times Square. After our Halal lunch, we walked around Rockefeller then spent a little time to rest in Central Park. We then hopped to Grand Central Station and finally did a little shopping around Bryant Park. Quite tiring but fun indeed. Thanks New York!


L&L Travel Diary: New York

Another travel opportunity for my little family came knocking and this time the destination was New York. I'm really glad that I finally got the chance to visit the big apple, now I can scratch it off of my list of places that I would like to go.

Of course, our itinerary consisted of visits to the famous tourist spots in NYC. With a baby in tow, I highly suggest skipping subways and just opt for a taxi or Uber. Yes, it definitely cost more but it's a whole lot easier, with all the bags and stroller, to roam around New York. With the Fall weather being so perfect during our stay, I can say I really enjoyed walking around and sightseeing with my family.

What to do on your first day when visiting New York? I say, visit the Statue of Liberty. Although, it takes a while to finally get into the Island, (Long lines, super tight airport-like security, and Ferry Ride) it was definitely worth it. Then, we stopped at Battery park to watch  some street performers then headed on to see the infamous charging bull. Our second to the last stop was a visit to the World Trade Center and the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. In all honesty, I felt emotional upon entering especially when I heard a voicemail (better to hear it yourself, I promise you that!)  I say it is a MUST to go here when you're in NYC. After walking away with a heavy heart from the museum, we went to Times Square to do some walking around and a little shopping for our last stop for the day.
