NY Day 3: The Last Day

Our final day in NY we had planned to stick around Brooklyn, but instead ended up checking out Brooklyn and heading back into the city! We got to do and see some random things which made the trip come full circle for us.

We started this morning by just getting ready and heading out. If you know me, you know that I need a cup of coffee in the morning to kick things off, but I actually did okay. We made it to Ix’s for coffee, stew, and a sandwich.

We could have probably just had the soup and been fine! The soup was so incredible and the flavors in the broth were warm and savory. It was definitely the star here!

After that we headed to Prospect Park and enjoyed the sunshine and walked around. I won’t lie I think after a few days of being on foot and some lingering jet lag we were both really feeling it because we (I) got tired of the park pretty quick and we went on to another adventure.

Brooklyn Heights is something we wanted to check out and it’s a beautiful little stroll by the water! After a short sit to hydrate we decided to take the trek over the Brooklyn Bridge.

I love that the bridge has a place for walkers and bikers so anyone can enjoy the view and enjoy strolling into Manhattan from Brooklyn.

Once there we rewarded ourselves with a hotdog from Nathan’s. Apparently we need to eat after each trek otherwise we’ll wither away šŸ˜‰

With a bit more energy we went and saw the World Trade Center. I had no idea there was a Westfield mall there, but it was cool to see.

Afterwards we went to find the NY Stock Exchange and on the way I needed a snack…pretty desperately. We found a biryani truck that also sold Kati rolls. We ordered one Kati roll with lamb.

I was expecting one roll when we opened up the package, but instead we got two little ones-even better! These were so good!! It’s meat and sauce and lettuce wrapped in a paratha and made to eat on the go. We just stood there and scarfed it down, but one of my favorite items we had this trip.

After finally arriving at the NY Stock Exchange we took in all the buildings and took a few minutes to just sit on the stairs across from the stock exchange building just to take it all in.

Then we headed to Di Fara’s for a slice of cheese šŸ™‚

And took a short walk for taiyaki at Taiyaki NYC…this was really good, but Somi Somi will always have my heart ā¤ļø

L’industrie Pizzeria was the last pizza stop of our trip and it was a pretty great one. It was a great slice, but different than a traditional NY slice. The crust was a little flaky and the cheese was lighter despite being topped off with parm before being baked. I really enjoyed it!

We were both so beat that we headed home to pack up some things before heading out to our evening plans at Union Hall. We love comedy and this particular comedy show combined magic and comedy. We didn’t know it when we bought the tickets, but we were more than fine with it and enjoyed the show!

After our Chinese food in Philly I had been wanting to try some in NY and got the chance after the show. Sadly, I don’t remember the place and I wasn’t a fan of the food sooo…it all works out?

By the time we made it home we were ready to crawl into bed and get some shut eye before having an early wake up time for JFK!

If you’ve been following along on our travels thank you so much! It’s been fun posting and remembering our trip šŸ™‚

Have you been to NY? What things did you enjoy-food or other?

    I have so loved keeping up with your NYC travels! Prospect park is really pretty.

    I have a bad memory from my first and only experience on the Brooklyn bridge- we realized we had left behind a book-bag full of all my makeup, passports/ID, wallet, etc. at a place we stopped to get water and an apple. We retraced our steps and found it- but gosh, it was a terrifying moment of realization on that bridge! Haha. Yours seems much better!

    That Kati roll is making my mouth water- I just love paratha.
    Yes yes Somi Somi is the winner that takes all!
    Thanks for sharing such a great trip, Jess!
