HT Couple goes to USA! (NYC)

HT couple went local and took the greyhound bus from Boston to the big apple.  Our bus schedule was at 10 am but HT hubbie being the "way-too-early" travel person, we were at the station around 8 am.  There was the same express bus to NY at 830 am and we tried our chance and got in!  (even if the ticket inspector tried to ask for 15 dollars per person as under the table fee - which we didn't give him - so beware guys!).

And here we are in NYC!

the busy Times Square
Saks 5th Avenue (too bad their Christmas windows are still in progress)
HT hubbie portraying CSI: NY - getting hotdogs
My pulled pork sandwich with Jack Daniel sauce (nope, not a slider portion)

HT hubbie shopping M&M's.
The super busy dimsum place in Chinatown.  We did take away and ate on the street as the waiting time was too long for our rumbling stomach.  Check out the queue and the NYPD! :D
The new york cheesecake of Little Red Hen!  Thumbs up to its smoothness and yummy-ness!
Boat tour to see the famous Statue of Liberty
Brooklyn Bridge
picturesques of NY
Went Mexican one night...check out the dish on the right:  Mole Poblano!  Mole sauce is made up of so many ingredients primarily different types of pepper and one of the ingredients is chocolate!  The first bite was a bit weird but after a few minutes, we went gaga over it.
Grand Central Terminal 
while strolling at the Financial District area, we saw this!  (Me, as a proud citizen of the Philippines :D)
 We spent several hours walking around the ponds in Central Park...lovely in the november sun.
and saw this :D
and an owl
 lovely, isn't it?
check out the red tree at the back

beautiful and serene
We had our favorite meal: Ramen and pork cheeks!
Visited Rockefeller Center
we just can't leave NY without having Shake Shack burgers. 
Those fire exits are just so NY!
Bye NY!  (Off our way back to MA)
