After a day full of seeing some of the main sights in NYC (read part one), on day two we were ready to take a more casual approach to exploring. We meandered through different parks and neighborhoods, stopping to eat along the way (of course) and ended the night at a speakeasy! Read on for the details.
A Day in New York City
We started off day two by stopping into one of NYC’s many bagel shops to grab a coffee and this avocado bagel, to go. Then, we made our way to Washington Square Park and stopped briefly along the way to watch a passing dance parade.
We settled in to eat our breakfast at the park, watching passersby and performers. It was a leisurely start to a leisurely day.
Shortly after wrapping up breakfast, we walked on in search pf more food! One of Imtiaz’s favorite places in NYC is The Kati Roll Company, and having tried it I can highly recommend it as well. We found ourselves there a couple times over the course of the weekend.
We enjoyed spending much of day two strolling through the city, and next made our way over to Bryant Park.
Bryant Park was definitely a highlight of this trip for me! It’s big and beautiful, with plenty to do. There’s an area to play board games, places to grab drinks and places to snag delicious waffles like the one above (guilty!). Sitting there, people watching with a hot waffle on a cloudy day, life was good.
That evening, we met up some of Imtiaz’s friends at Bathtub Gin. You NEED to go here on your next trip to NYC. The entrance is within an unassuming coffee shop, and once you’re through the doors to the speakeasy the ambiance and food will blow you away. Be sure to make reservations ahead of time, and dress to impress!
