Day Three New York, New York

On day three we started with the Uptown bus tour.
The Trump Tower
The following photographs show some of the neat architecture found along Central Park West






First stop - The Cathedral of St. John the Divine




Nursery Rhyme statue next to the cathedral



Riverside Church


The following photographs were taken in Harlem




Duke Ellington Statue 
We hopped off the bus again at the square in front of the Plaza Hotel and window shopped along Fifth Avenue.  We couldn't stay out of Tiffany's which needless to say had some lovely jewellery.



The red carpet at the Plaza.

The window at Tiffany's (Hi Mom!)

My favourite shot of the week would have to be this one of the Louis Vuitton building


 We headed back to Museum Mile and visited the Guggenheim, which turned out to be my favourite gallery.





 After our long day Tracy, Christina and I had our afternoon "tea" at The Irish pub where we had a cocktail and shared an order of Curried Chips and Cheese.  I know it sounds gross but it was quite tasty - basically a poutine with curry sauce instead of gravy.  After a quick change of clothes we met the Vancouver ladies and took the subway down to 230 Fifth, a rooftop garden lounge on top of a tall building in Midtown.


On the way out we noticed a photo booth and all six of us squished in for some photos.  Hilarity ensued and I couldn't stop laughing.  That's me, most visible on the top right photo, in the top right corner.
