NYC – Day 5

Our day began with a breakfast in Central Park, and then a walk to FAO Schwartz on 5th Avenue, where we made our own Muppets at the Muppet Whatnot Workshop…

We dropped our Muppets off at our hotel and cabbed to the Metroploitan Museum, where we spent the first half of our day (and had a fantastic brunch!) If I lived in NYC, I’d get a season pass. There’s so much to see – it’s just huge. It took a few hours just to power-walk through the place.

We then took a subway to Chelsea where I was able to do a bit of yarn shopping at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio, and then at Purl Soho…

After that, we headed to Little Italy & Chinatown. Kizzy’s cousin’s husband gave us a tour of the Chiatown firestation that he works at, and we wound up having a tasty & very filling meal in Little Italy…

Finally, we had the energy to get dressed up and do one night out at Don’t Tell Mama’s Piano Bar…
