New York Photo Diary // Day Four






We went off early to catch the bus to head to the uptown tour. The tour was mainly around central park and also took us to Harlem.
The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine which is above was really interested- This cathedral is actually not finished, there is only one bell tower which is crazy. It has been around since the late 1800's and its construction and restoration is still an ongoing process. I loved it because it looks so gothic which is why I wanted to take snaps of it. During the ride through Harlem we passed the famous Apollo venue, as it is Wednesday it is amateur night. Amateur night isn’t for the faint hearted, you have to be good otherwise not only are you booed by the crowd you also get taken off stage by the executioner!!


We could not come to New York and not go to Grand Central Terminal, it was beautiful inside and was very grand thats for sure. We also rode the subway a couple times which was rad. However I prefer the London tubes as I could not get my head around the Subway hah.




After that we stopped for some lunch and headed back up to central park where we found this cute Alice in wonderland statue, we then rented a little boat and rowed in the lake. It was so lovely and chill compared to us rushing through the streets and dodging the passing people.






We then ran home to get on the final bus to have the nighttime tour, which takes us into Brooklyn. We went over the Manhattan bridge which had amazing views of the skyline and Brooklyn bridge, it was pretty much perfect. We found a cute little bar afterwards on 8th avenue to have some food before going quickly to bed after the super busy day.



Again I was so so tired that as soon as we got back to the hotel I was asleep in no time!!

Thanks for reading!
