Our legs are starting to fade, weâve:
2. Visited the museum
3. Went to the ball game
All in the same day, this city is huge! You start to walk around and enjoy one part and then you realise that there is so much more to see, it is awesome!
We started the day with our first ride on the subway.
Travel Tip: Donât just jump on the first train that you see, it may be going the wrong way J Never fear, donât lose your composure, hop off the next stop, and get on the next available train.
Subway: 2, Tourists: 0
Travel Tip: Just because there is a train on the other side of the platform it does not automatically mean that it is going the opposite way, no â it may be the EXPRESS going in the same direction J We gracefully exited the train (4 stops later) and decided to ask for some assistance this time, it was then we were told that you had to cross to the other side of the street to get on the Uptown bound train, not the Downtown; mark that one down in your diaries kiddies!
To Uptown we go! Exiting the subway, we walked through Central Park and enjoyed the walk.
After the museum we went back to 5th Avenue, had a quick bite to eat a walk around the shops and headed home. Kath had a nap before our night time adventure.
"Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack,
I don't care if I never get back,
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,
At the old ball game."
We went out to the ballgame to watch New York Mets vs Cincinnati Reds. It was so much fun! It was a great night, had some fantastic weather and the game was entertaining. (In case youâre counting, Subway: 2 Tourists: 1, we managed to get there without incident J)
The Mets ended up winning (great for the crowd) and we got to sing some songs, order some hotdogs (well I did) and cheer on the winning team! (Shame the camera ran out of battery early in the night!)
