Day 6 – Flushing, Queens and Jackson Heights

Day 6 – Flushing, Queens and Jackson Heights

Today is the day of eating I have been waiting for all week. Ha Staying in midtown right off Times Square has its advantages, in that the 42nd Street port Authority Bus Terminal basically is the hub for almost every line of the subway in the city… and if you can’t get there from 42nd street, you walk south to 34th street and grab a train or subway from Penn Station, or you walk East and grab anything else at…

Day 5 – Museum of Natural History and Van Gogh Experience

Day 5 – Museum of Natural History and Van Gogh Experience

We took the subway north this morning to 72nd street on the upper west side so we could walk towards our museum and pass Zucker’s Bagels and Smoked Fish for breakfast.

This one is a 3 story collection of seating and bars offering booze and coffee, pastries, fancy sandwiches, tasting flights of various coffees. All in a fancy schmancy setting of walnut furniture, fireplaces and copper. Designed to celebrate their coffee and their process. Honestly, it was good food, but we were…

Day 2 – Hudson Cruise and lower Manhattan

Day 2 – Hudson Cruise and lower Manhattan

We started our morning a bit later than normal because we were all up so late for SNL and we had less than 5 hours of sleep two nights in a row prior. It was pretty nice to sleep until 8:30. ha Right outside the front doors of the hotel is Angelina’s Bakery. They had some great looking pastries. I got the cheese danish above and the ham and cheese focaccia below that I split. Kegan got the spinach and…
