From Times Square, we walked over to the Shake Shack on 44th St. It was REALLY crowded so we were very lucky to get a seat quickly because we happened to be standing near a table just as the people left. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the burgers there and we were not disappointed. The burgers were juicy and delicious. The fries were underwhelming but the Shack-cago dog was quite good and my peanut butter shake was yummy. Definitely worth a visit!
Times Square is one of those places that has to be seen to be believed. It feels so familiar and so unreal at the same time. We spent a few hours there soaking it all in and doing a bit of shopping. My main aim was to get some Mickey Mouse stuff for Anya from the Disney store there. We thought about getting discounted tickets for a Broadway show at the TKTS discount booth but the queue was super long so that’s one thing I didn’t get to do in NY!
I am a huge Anthony Bourdain fan so I dragged Debs and her friend, Jing, to Les Halles for breakfast on my second day in New York. I don’t know what the home fries are cooked in but they are damn delicious! After breakfast, we walked down to the Little Church Around the Corner (The Church of the Transfiguration) for a look-see. The church is a NYC landmark and it also appeared on one of the SATC episodes.
