One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years. -Tom Wolfe

My last day in New York, and I can't say I wanted to leave.

There was a bunch of skateboarders racing though the streets today, probably a little over 100 people just skating through the traffic.  It was really cool to see!

We ate at a small hole-in-the-wall burger joint (that's actually rather famous) it was so cool and the food was great.  It was tucked away in this fancy hotel down a hallway in the corner and the walls were covered in writing and posters and signatures of famous people.  It was very cool and I'm so glad we got to eat there!

We spent most of the rest of the day in Central Park, people aren't exaggerating when they say it's beautiful.

I got to meet my mom's friend Denise and we spent the day with her.  She was so nice and fun, I can see why my mom likes her so much!

My favorite part of Central Park was a small pond with motorized sail boats that were zooming around in it and it was so serene, my dad would have loved it.

There was a 'Central Park Skaters' event going on and it was such a blast to watch all of the skaters dance around and have fun, I think if I'm ever in New York over a weekend again I'd like to bring my skates and join them!

Plenty of street performers were out and about.  Some were incredible, like the young opera singer in the park, and some were just.. odd, to say the least.

We went in the FAO toy store and I got to see a life size Batman Lego creation!  That was awesome, because Batman is the best superhero ever.  There was also a huge piano that you play with your feet and there were huge candy bars of all kinds and so many other toy's I couldn't even begin to list them!

I had a wonderful time in New York City and I would go back anytime.  It's overwhelming at first but once you get used to the hustle and bustle you have time to really notice and appreciate the interesting sights and diverse crowds of people that are in this busy city.
