New York City Day 2

On Day 2 Chrissy and I had a plan.  Central Park. David Letterman. Mets Game. 2 of the 3 weather dependent and I am pleased to say the day went perfectly!  First we walked over to central park to rent a tandem bike and explore the Park.

 At the South East Entrance to the Central Park

We went to the rental shop and they didn't have a tandem bike.  They said they had on at the 67th street location so we walked 7 blocks to get one.

 On the way we passed by Trump Tower
They gave a tandem bike and we were set to take off...until...I checked the brakes...which were ceased to exist. So individual bikes it is!

 I love this picture. Peaceful.  Even though the park is extremely busy you can find quiet places.

  Taking another break.  The ride was a lot harder than we anticipated
 Hydrate B! Hydrate! haha
 Chambers told us we must try the roasted nuts in Central Park.  She was right.  AMAZING!!!
 They were so good I got giddy

After our bike ride we dropped the bikes off and started heading back to the hotel through the Park to freshen up.  

 On one of the many walking paths

We may...ok...I may have been in a goofy mood so I decided to do some modelling

 Pretty good eh?
 This should be on the front of the next Central Park New Magazine hahaha

I may have convinced Chrissy to get in on the act...

 Work it
 One of the many horse and carriages you will see roaming the Park

On the way back to the hotel we were hungry so I stopped and had my first mixed chicken Halal. It was SOOOOOOOOOO Good

 Waiting for my Halal

After lunch we freshened up and mosied down to the Ed Sullivan Theatre

Ready to go

 That is the biggest chocolate bar we have ever seen!
I wish it was actually full of chocolate sauce but it was just a piggy bank
 At the famous Hello Deli around the corner from the Ed Sullivan Theatre
 Big B down Times Square
 Amazing how busy it is at any time of day

The taping of the Letterman show was one of the highlights of our trip.  It was so cool seeing what goes on behind the scenes. A very cool experience

After the taping we quickly got changed and went to take our first NYC subway ride out to Queens to see the Mets play at Citifield.

 Ready to give it a go
 Subway Selfy
 We had to transfer halfway there. This station you can still see some of the skyline in Manhattan
