New York City - Day 4

Day 4 - Monday 6th May

Slow start trying to find the right subway to downtown Brooklyn. Finally made it just in time for the opening of the TKTS booth where we got tickets to Avenue Q, 40% off!

Headed for Brooklyn Heights, eventually decided on somewhere for a brunch of egg and cheese bagels with gingerbread chai, nom nom nom!

Amazing view of skyline from Brooklyn Heights Promenade, just like on Friends! Then walked over the bridge which was hot and busy.

Ended up in financial district, saw City Hall (surprisingly small for such a large city), the Woolworth building, Ground Zero and the new WTC, Trinity Church, Wall Street, and the Stock Exchange, Federal Hall and and the Bowling Green Bull.

Chilled out for half an hour on a park bench then wandered over to Little Italy. Had amazing pastries for afternoon tea swiftly followed by amazing pizza at Lombardi's!

Caught subway back to hostel, changed then headed out to make it to New World Stages (off Broadway) just in time for Avenue Q. Obviously still hilarious, and so much more intimate than the last time I saw it which was at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff (think: back row of a massive auditorium!), this time second row of a tiny theatre! So awesome to watch the actors faces as well as the puppets.

Finished day with hot chocolate in Times Square, before sleep in preparation for the final day!
