After our cruise we ventured back to NYC, and it was a lot more relaxing then our first trip into the city. The first night we drove into the city during rush hour (I'm not sure what we were thinking) and soon enough little Emmy, my niece, starting having a breakdown. (It's okay Emmy, I almost had a break down too). So the whole family, in the back of our huge bus of an SUV started singing to entertain her.
after parking and paying like $50 for 2 hours (no joke. it's THAT much), we headed to Little Italy/SoHo and ate some real, legit NYC pizza. It was THE. BEST. PIZZA I have ever had in my life. No joke. I loved it. While waiting for a table Amos got to experience a real, inner-city playground hidden between two huge buildings.
The last day in town, we went into the Time's Square Area again to eat at Junior's, a famous spot. It had really good cheesecake and Amos loved posing in the front. After dinner, Ricky, Alissa (my sister-in-law) and I decided to stay in the city while the rest of the family took the babies back and put them to bed. We were going to take the subway/train home. That's when I really experienced New York, and it's such a wonderful, bustling city if you are running free. We shopped in Time Square, found a good coffee place, ate pizza again, and went to the top of the Eiffel Tower. We finally got home, in New Jersey, at 2AM from the train, and Amos was sound asleep with Grandma.
