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!

One of the many walking brides in the park
The Central Park Carousal

What a great smile
At the Central Park Reservoir
A ton of Condos and office towers behind the Park

What a good looking couple :)
Taking a break during our 8.4 km bike ride around the entire Park

Nice hair B. You been wearing a bike helmet or something?
Pretty good pic
Squirrel crossing. This pic is for my friend the flying squirrel
Selfy in the Park somewhere
The lake with Manhattan in the background
I love this picture. Peaceful. Even though the park is extremely busy you can find quiet places.
A look of Manhattan behind us
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
Me in front of the lake
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...
One of the many horse and carriages you will see roaming the Park
Back at the Carousal
I love this pic. In Central Park. Baseball games being played behind her and behind that Manhattan.
A nice one of B
Almost out of the park.
A nice walking bridge
Under the bridge
Me and my best friend
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
Out front ready to go see a live taping of the David Letterman Show

After we went through and got our tickets we were free to go and had to be back in hour for the taping

Getting closer to the centre of Times Square
Found the Hersey's store
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
We had to transfer halfway there. This station you can still see some of the skyline in Manhattan
Indoor Subway selfy

It rained a bit during the game but with our sweet covered seats it was awesome.
Mets lost 3-0 but we still had a great time.
Stay tuned for pictures from day 3 of NYC
