The Roaming Traveler: Does NYC at Christmastime |Part Two|

Day Two:


No matter how old or young you are, everyone needs to go to the Toy Soldier Breakfast at FAO Schwarz at least once. I found out about on TripAdvisor and knew we had to do it. Everyone was pretty skeptical at first, but we all LOVED it. The breakfast begins an hour before the store actually opens, so you can view everything without any lines or crowds.


We got to 'raid' the schweetz area.


And we played on The Big Piano! Mom gave us a great Mary Had A Little Lamb performance that blew everyone away.


Toy Soldier Rich and Sir Jordan were fantastic! I highly recommend them.



Waiting for the bus at Central Park.


The buses either had a full cover, half cover, or no cover. We were lucky for the Downtown Loop, that we got a full cover only to find out that we would have to switch off of this bus halfway through the tour and get on another one.


When we got off of the bus, we decided to go on the Brooklyn Loop since we were already downtown. While walking to the next bus stop, we saw these cute tables with checker boards painted on them that were around City Hall.


Brooklyn Bridge!


Manhattan skyline from the Brooklyn side.




By the time we finished our Brooklyn Loop and the rest of the Downtown Loop, we arrived back in Times Square and noticed that the snow was heavy enough to stick!


This is the bottom of  the Rockefeller Christmas Tree. I look back at my pictures, and I am still amazed with this tree.. and New York City!


I love my family!:)



We then went to see the Radio City Rockettes in their Radio City Christmas Spectacular! I honestly could go see this performance once a week. It was so good!

All opinions shared are my own - straight out of my roaming brain.
