We were up fairly early and decided to walk to the Intrepid Air and Space Museum. It was lovely walk of around an hour – public transport obviously available instead.
The Intrepid Museum was brilliant. We loved the submarine museum and being on the aircraft hanger was fab.
We saw Concorde and also the Enterprise Space Shuttle.
The hanger itself has been used in loads of films including National Treasure. It’s home to lots of aircraft and also has plenty of original guns. You can also get inside the ship quarters.
It’s a really great museum and we highly recommend it.
From here we walked up into the Hells Kitchen area and grabbed a beer and bar snacks from As is NYC – a craft beer bar. We stopped for a pizza at B squared which was a fairly run Italian restaurant and drew us in with their mouth watering smells and takeout pizzas on display. It was yummy!
From here we walked back up to 5th Avenue and then up to Bloomingdales for a little browse. We popped for a beer for old times sake at a little restaurant we enjoyed on our last visit, directly opposite the famous Serendipity cafe.
By now it was around 5pm, so we decided to get the subway back to our hotel, get showered and changed and then head back out.
Our evening saw us up at the Rockerfeller Plaza. We saw the famous tree – its magnificent by the way despite being unlit. We enjoyed the famous SAKS window display – wow, just beautiful! Had a beer at the pop up bar outside and opposite the tree and then went for a mind blowing steak (without reservation) at Del Friscos Grille. Yes it was pricey, but my god it was incredible. Keith had a filet mignon, ribs and steak for me. Divine! We had pre booked the Rocketttes at Radio City for the 10pm sitting and what a treat this was. We went for the cheapest seats – up on the front row of the back section but we still really enjoyed the show and got a great view of all the projections too. 10000% RECOMMENDED!
We made our way back to the hotel by foot – the city never sleeps. We had had the best day!
