February 2016: NYC Day 1

Hey guys,

So on our first day in NYC we left Fort Myers at around 6:30 a.m. and we had a connecting flight in Charlotte, NC and then finally landed at JFK at around 11:10 a.m. We then hopped in a cab and went to our hotel, which was The Waldorf Astoria (I will be doing a review on our stay later).  We didn't really have that much planned for either of the two days that we were there because it was such a last minute trip and we weren't staying for very long. The reason we were there was because my sister had an interview for grad school which was later on in the afternoon. 

When we got to our hotel we went to check in to see if our room was available and it was so we headed upstairs to check out our room and relax a little before going to grab lunch. I don't have any pictures of our lunch because we just grabbed subs at one of the many grab-n-go type places that New York has. We then hung out in our room for the next couple of hours while I finished homework and my sister prepared for her interview. Then we left the hotel, grabbed some Starbucks, and dropped my sister off at her interview which was being help at a hotel near Times Square. While my sister was at her interview my mom and I just walked around Times Square and checked out a couple stores until she was done. Then we headed back to our hotel and added some layers because it was getting colder out.

In the evening we went to dinner at a place called Pazza Notte and we enjoyed a Pizza Cacciatore. This restaurant seems to be a very popular after work hangout and was very busy and filled with a lot of people. So if you are looking for a quiet dinner on a Friday night, I would not recommend this place. However, the pizza was delicious so if don't care if you can't really hear what anyone in your group is saying then I would definitely recommend it. After dinner we walked back to our hotel room. We were supposed to go ice skating at Wollman Rink in Central Park but we decided against it because it was really dark and were weren't sure how to get to the rink.

Thanks for stopping by!
