We had an action packed Friday the 13th...
In the morning we went to the American Museum Of Natural History - there were about a million school kids but only half of them were screaming so it wasn't so bad.
We saw the dinosaurs and loads of other exhibits including the space show at the planetarium.
Next stop was another visit to the East Village where we checked out the shops along St Marks Place - Paul bought a new ring - we then went and had a drink in Manitoba's Bar (singer from The Dictators).
Came back to home base for an hour and then headed to the Rockefeller Centre to go up to the Top Of The Rock. Massive line outside - lucky we don't line up for anything - turned out it was a tour group lined up half way up the block! We got up there at 6.10 just in time for the sunset which was at 7.00. It was bloody freezing in New York tonight - minus 1 at 7pm - even colder 70 stories up! We had to keep going back inside to defrost!
We left there about 7.30 and enjoyed the experience of being up so high above New York.
Bye for now!
