NYC NYC – Monday

We didn’t have much time Monday morning before heading to the airport so we just walked to the nearby New York Public Library and through Bryant Park before calling an Uber for our ride to the airport.

It was fun to see a pigeon in the security line with us. Our last plane home from Denver was an actual prop plane. Eek! I was unaware of this when I let Rob book the tickets and was quite unhappy when I found out (I always check the type of plane beforehand).  I’m not sure I’ll let Rob book the tickets again. I was nervous but even with the delay, noisy propellor sound, and the lower flying elevation we made it home safely somehow.

Some final thoughts on New York in general:
We were constantly musing on how a huge city like this is even run (governing so many people from all walks of life, sanitation and utilities, etc).

The buildings are SO TALL.

It’s a dirty city. Lots of trash. Lots of scaffolding!

I can’t believe people spend $3,500 on shoes!

It was strange how early all the stores closed. I’m not sure the bosses knew that all their employees were pushing customers out the doors up to 30 minutes before an already early 8pm closing time. The places were packed with Christmas shoppers who wanted to spend money but weren’t able to because the employees had social plans to get to (I assume).

Overall, we had a really great time exploring somewhere new together. A round of applause goes to Rob’s family for helping us with the children while we were gone.
