We took the bus & subway in from New Jersey to Central Park to meet Tarah. I was pleasantly surprised by how painless it was to take public transportation, and even happier to see Tarah again! We hadn't seen each other since last spring in Dominica.
Tarah suggested we go to the Top of the Rock to really get a feel for the size of New York. Holy Moly, it's huge! I am in complete awe of the city and people who live there.
Because it was Memorial Day the city was fairly empty and the great weather made it the perfect day to walk and explore. We visited the Library, Washington Square, Grand Central, the villages, and even ate pizza at an outdoor restaurant in Little Italy.
Our last stop was Times Square for a quick pic and look around before hitting the subway back to NJ. The day was too short! But we had an awesome time, and I look forward to visiting again someday.
