Day Three – January 5, 2007

We began our third day in NYC with another tour – this time the NY TV & Movie Tour (big props to Terrence for creating such an exciting and fun-filled itinerary with the help of

We stopped at various locations throughout the City, including Pulitzer Fountain (Serendipity and more recently the Apprentice),

Tiffany & Co. (every girl’s dream – even just to wander around in there – so Charlotte!), NY Public Library (Mad About You and The Day After Tomorrow), St. Patrick’s Cathedral (Spiderman), The Empire Diner (Men in Black II),

Hogs & Heffers (Coyote Ugly), The Huxtables stoop (Cosby Show), The Friend’s Building, Rice to Riches (Hitch, Blind Date), Cafe Reggio (In Good Company, Law & Order, 13 Going on 30),

Blue Note Jazz Club,

McGraw Hill Building (The Devil Wears Prada), and my personal fav – Macy’s (Elf, Miracle on 34th Street), , as well as so many more!!!

We ate at a restaurant at the bottom of the Empire State Building – nothing to brag about – the restaurant that is, but they did steam some mean spinach!!! 🙂 Now the Empire State Building, which we actually visited on another day, was beautiful.

I’m not sure my description of the tour provides the right umph to the day, but it really was so much fun!

NY is so exciting; it’s a great place for pedestrians, too, not only because of the absolutely fabulous subway system, but we walked approximately 5 – 6 miles every single day – no doubt in our minds. It’s probably a good thing, too, since we ate as many desserts as we wanted whenever we wanted – gotta love NY!
