Explored the High Line:
Failed to look around Ground Zero (if you want to go to the memorial preview, you have to book tickets online, you can’t see anything without these tickets). Looking around the visitor centre and seeing pictures and videos of the day was still very interesting and obviously extremely sad.
After a tiring day involving a lot of walking we headed out for dinner in Greenwich Village. We had a reservation at an Italian but it looked really quiet compared to the bustling Thai next door so we opted for Thai instead. It was very good value with a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
After dinner we headed to the Blue Note jazz club, just round the corner in Greenwich Village. This was one of the highlights of the trip so far and I’ll try to do a separate post about this in future, but for now I’ll just say that it was an incredible evening and it is highly recommended. We had a table near the stage and enjoyed some champagne.
We then headed round the corner and found a random cozy bar that promised free live jazz until 4 am, so we grabbed a few cocktails and soaked up the atmosphere. This would have been the perfect end to a perfect evening…but the boys insisted on dragging us to McDonalds for a post-drink snack. Talk about lowering the tone!
Finally…new coat! I felt like Santa…if only I was wearing my new boots it would have completed the
festive costume outfit.
