As we get ourselves organised today, we are aware it is our last full day of new york city and discuss what are the last things we want to see.   We start off in south Manhattan and enjoy a walk on the famous Brooklyn Bridge, it's crowded with tourists but we still enjoy the views and it's good to walk off all the fatty foods we've been eating lately.    We make it half way on the brooklyn bridge and return back to Manhattan and catch the subway up to Bleeker St in Greenwich Village, to catch glimpse of a residential area in NYC.  When we exit the subway on Bleeker St, the kids are hungry and we quickly look for a place to eat.  We find a Deli/Restaurant where we buy sandwiches, salads and a Pizza Pasta, that's right a Pizza with Penne Pasta topping.  The kids had to try it and begged me to order one and they loved it.   After an enjoyable lunch we walk across Greenwich Village and end up at Washington Square, they are building a new playground but it is not completed yet much to the disappointment of my two little ones.  We then jump on the subway and at W4 St and catch the Orange F line to 57 St which is near central park and the famous F.A.O Schwarz toy store.  It's has a lot of great toys and concepts from Tin soldiers to Big Panio's,  this place has it all.  It's approaching dinner time fast and we wanted to see Central Park, well at least a piece of it as this park is huge.  As we reach the edge of the park, horse and carriages are lined up waiting to take visitors through the park.  We decide to go for a ride as it is a little nippy and we get blankets to keep warm.  Our horse is Sonny and he is 17 years old and as he pulls around central park, his driver Tino explains the history and famous movies of the Park.   The kids love the ride and we spot a few playgrounds and things we want to see after the ride.  We we enjoy a walk through the park on our own and decide to visit the playgrounds and end up walking half way through the park.  We are now pretty tired and hungry as it's 6pm,  so we catch a subway back to a packed Times Sq and have Dinner at Ruby Tuesday where we enjoy a fantasitc dinner on our last night.
