New York (Part 2)



Daniel and I tried to make the most out of our last full day in New York! By that I mean waking up at 4:30am to really seize it!



We were determined to see the sun rise behind the Manhattan Bridge! Unfortunately, there was a heavy rainfall the night before, so the sky wasn't as colourful as how we had envisioned it.



On the bright side, there was barely anyone awake in the wee hours of the morning, so we pretty much had the Brooklyn Bridge all to ourselves!!!



Once we crossed over to the other side of the bridge, we went to check out The Oculus! It was then that I realized there were so many Starbucks in New York. Literally one on every few blocks!




Can you believe this building is a train station??? Beaaaaautiful!



Our bellies started to grumble, so we took it as a sign to move along and go for brunch! As we made our way to Jack's Wife Freda, Daniel recognized one of the buildings we were passing by. It was Casey Neistat's office.



I still remember seeing Daniel add this address to our itinerary and I'm like, "Really Daniel? We're just gonna stand outside and wait for this YouTuber to come out....?" He responded with, "Fine, we'll just go IF we have time." It's actually weird how we ended up passing by it, even though I was reluctant on going. Or maybe Daniel was actually scheming... 😄



We had brunch at Jack's Wife Freda, because I noticed so many articles, blogs and vlogs listing it as a must-do thing in New York. We didn't make reservations, but the waiting time wasn't bad at all!



I really enjoyed their rosewater waffles and Daniel devoured his dish. He also ordered a drink and was ready to take a nap after chugging it down, but we still had so many things left to do!! Like c'mon bwoi, snap out of it!



We made our way to SoHo next, and I remember Georgetown Cupcakes had a store there. I used to watch their show on TLC in middle school and remember feeling inspired to open up my own bakery!



They had so many flavours to choose from! We didn't want to carry a box around with us, so it was hard trying to choose only two to eat there. We were surprised by how dense their cupcakes were and how fluffy the frosting was!



After window shopping, we made our way to Washington Square Park and ended up taking a power nap on the bench for one hour. We took a couple of photos in front of the arch, before visiting the High Line.



I obviously couldn't leave New York without trying their bubble tea. They only offered one size for the flavour I order and it was huge!!! Oh why am I playing, I easily finished it allll. 😋



I actually had no idea what the High Line was, but it was listed as a must-do thing when I was researching online.



From what I've experienced, you basically go up these stairs and walk along this super long path to see views of the city!



Once Daniel and I reached the end of the path, we sat on a bench tickling.. and insulting.. and hugging.. and back to insulting each other. Our flirting got interrupted by Daniel's need to go to the washroom. 😂 We figured that it was time to get dinner too.



We knew we couldn't leave New York until we tried Shake Shack! I'm not a milkshake fan, but their strawberry shake converted me into one!!! I still think about it till this day. 😄 We scarfed down our meal, because we didn't want to miss seeing the sunset at Top of The Rock.



The Top of the Rock is basically New York's version of our CN Tower! You get a beautiful view of the whole city! This sunset definitely made up for the sunrise that we didn't get to see in the morning. 😄



Oh yeah, story time!!! A lady started to push this guy because she wanted to take a photo from his angle. The both of them started to bicker, until the lady bit his arm! The security guard didn't even do anything!!! 😐



Ohhhh New York, you were truly memorable! 😄 Until next time!
