NYC Day 2

We woke up bright and early Friday to have breakfast at Pie Face before we all walked to the Empire State Building.  We wanted to get there early,and beat the lines, but the only bad thing was that there was still a lot of smog over the skyline.  But despite the smog the views of the city that high were still impressive. 
I told Chris from a distance that the Empire State Building doesn't look that big but once you get close you realize just how big it is!
Flatiron Building
Chrysler Building
After we finished shopping in the gift shop we headed over to Macy's to do a little bit more shopping before lunch.  We all decided that we needed to eat at Carnegie Deli.  We worked up a big appetite walking to get there and it was a good thing too because they give you massive amounts of food!! Chris and I split our food and we still had a ton of food leftover.  We all piled our food together and gave it to a homeless person.  Chris said the person was extremely happy to get it! For dessert we headed over to Grom for some Italian Gelato.  I was so excited when I found out that NYC had a Grom that I knew that we all had to eat there.  Once we finished our gelato we went over to FAO Schwartz to check out the Big Piano and toys.  We then headed over to Rockefeller Center to see where the ice skating rink was, and where they put the big Christmas tree.
The matzah ball soup was amazing!!
The Woody Allen, pastrami sandwich
I could eat gelato for every meal!!

We did a little more shopping before we headed back to the hotel to get ready to go to the Bronx to see a Yankee's baseball game.  We had to take the subway to get there and we just happened to pick rush hour to ride so it was extremely busy.  If you don't like someone being in your personal space then riding the subway during rush hour may not be for you!  Once we got there we headed over to the gift shop to get some souvenirs before watching batting practice.   We only stayed for 4 innings before we all got really hungry.  We decided to take the subway back and get some Chinese food at Yum Yum Bangkok.  After being sufficiently stuffed we got some cookies before officially calling it a night.
