Spring Break in NYC: Day 4

Our trip went by too fast in 4 short days. But we did everything we intended to do: eat, see friends, eat, shop, eat, walk.

On our last day we ate bagels for breakfast from where we used to get bagels all the time- I don’t even know what it’s called, I just call it Bagel Time.

Russell headed to the Garment District for sewing supplies and I shopped on 5th Avenue. We met at the halal cart in Midtown  for lunch.

  1. Love the itinerary and love that last shot of you! You inspired me to look into air bnb’s prices in NYC – looks like these two teachers may be able to afford to take their girls to the city, after all! Thanks!

  2. I loved your entire Spring Break blog, you accomplished so much in such a short time! The walk in Central park, donuts, Russ and his students… it’s all great! Thanks for sharing!
