Day 4: Shopping Shopping Shopping
The day before I googled the address of at least 10 stores that we all wanted to go and mad a map in Google and print it.
So early in the morning we started with the some stores that were near the hotel and then we took a taxi to the great and beautiful Fifth Avenue and started shopping. We went to many stores, from Forever 21 to Saks Fifth Avenue and Abercrombie and Fitch. Although it was a long and hot-humid day I'm not going to describe it all but in conclusion we did have fun.
Day 5: Museums and a bit more of Shopping
We started kind of late but ready to have a good day. We first went to the Natural History Museum and spent about 2-3 hours. We then walked around Central Park for about half an hour. After "getting lost in C.P. we took a cab to the Madame Tussauds oh and if you want to save 5 USD per person do a check in at FourSquare. This museum is very cool and although I visited the one in Hollywood it's always nice to go back and see some new figures (sadly K. Kardashian wax figure was taken off apparently she was not that popular :( )
We had lunch at the nice Red Lobster at Times Square and we then took a cab to visit the remaining stores. A trip to NYC can't be done before going to FAO Schwarz and Niketown (and also LV)
After this calm day we headed back to our hotel for some rest.
