Alright, our third and final day.
We woke up and it was so beautiful outside, no more rain and not as many people out as before. Mom-Mom and I made our way to the WestWay diner on Restaurant Row, it was quite a walk but it was amazing out so it didn’t bother us.
We went back to the hotel after walking through the Eighth Avenue Flea Market and packed up our things to head home, but we kept our luggage there as we walked around the city.
NBC Studios and Rockefeller Center was another visit as we made our way around, I can’t get enough of the pop culture influences within New York. We continued on down the street and came across the Church of Scientology, it’s so interesting to me! While we were allowed to walk in and learn more, we quickly walked past.
One visit I absolutely loved as we walked was St. Peter’s Cathedral. It was so beautiful, so grand. The architecture inside was amazing, so detailed. There were tons of tourists, but that didn’t stop us from taking pictures of the stained glass in the high walls and ceiling. Absolutely one of my favorite parts of the day.
We made our way back to the hotel, but not before stopping at Rockefeller Center to see where New York traditionally lights the Christmas tree and creates the ice rink featured in so many rom-coms and holiday movies.
Then we were on the train home.
New York was such an incredible experience that I’ll never forget. Everything from singing diners to Wicked on Broadway made this vacation one to remember. I’m so grateful for this experience and I can’t believe I actually got to go!
