The weather was definitely not cooperating with us this day, so we spent the morning doing some shopping on 34th Street. For lunch, we went to the famous Carnegie Deli for lunch. Just wait until you see the size of the sandwich that Mr.D had! We got there around 1:30pm and there was a line up down the street. We decided to brave the rain and wait in line, and it was worth it!

The sun decided to come out, so we decided to squeeze in as many sights as we could. We saw:
- the NYC public library
- the financial district
- the Brooklyn bridge

After the day of exploring and sight seeing, we headed back to the apartment to get ready for dinner. We went to a restaurant called Dinosaur bar-b-que after my BIL had heard good things about it. It definitely did not disappoint! Mr.D and I split a meal called the sweetheart deal, which was a full rack of ribs with four sides for $29.99. It was so delicious.

On our final day, we had the morning to do some last minute exploring before our late afternoon flight. We took a final walk down to Times Square, Central Park and Grand Central Station. This day was New Years Eve and it was crazy to see people lined up in Times Square at 9:30am for the ball drop already. I couldn't imagine sitting there for that long!
Overall, we had a great trip to NYC. The weather wasn't the greatest while we were there, but we still had fun sight seeing, shopping and spending time with our family. I had so much fun hanging out with my niece and can't wait for them to move home.
