On our last day in New York, we had breakfast in our hotel and then headed out.
On our first visit to Top of The Rock the visibilty was poor due to the weather, but thankfully this time the weather was perfect and so were the views.
View of Central Park.
And the Empire State Building.
After taking in the amazing views from Top of The Rock, we grabbed a cupcake each from The Magnolia Bakery.
Before heading to see the unusual Flatiron Building.
The Flatiron’s unique shape comes from the triangular area of land it was built on, as a traditional building wouldn’t fit.

Keen to see as many sights as possible, we headed downtown to see the Brooklyn Bridge.
The Brooklyn Bridge crosses New York’s East River, connecting the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
We walked part of the way across the Bridge, but not all the way across to Brooklyn. If we’re ever back in the city, we’d like to spend some time exploring Brooklyn.
In need of a little energy boost, we stopped at two places for some sugary treats.
The first was Eileen’s Special Cheesecake, where the cheesecake was pretty special.
Followed by a visit to the Milk & Cream Cereal Bar.
I thought it was just a cool ice cream parlour with different toppings, but it was so much better than that!
You choose your ice cream toppings and also one cereal that’s then blended in with the ice cream to flavour it.
Feeling energised, we walked to Glossier.
The Glossier showroom is sleekly designed to showcase their products, which you can also purchase.

Once I’d treated myself to a few bits, we got an Uber to the High Line.
The High Line was once a railway track, but after being disused for many years it was resurrected as an elevated park area.
As we was in the area, we also visited the Chelsea Market.
Where we picked up lots of foodie gifts to take home.
And admired the Halloween displays.
After browsing the Market we got a taxi to Mandoo Bar, a Korean restaurant not far from our hotel.
Our yummy food.
After a delicious meal at Mandoo Bar, we went back to our hotel and started to pack up our things before bed.
And then in the morning, it was time to fly home and say goodbye to New York.
