Last days in NYC

My darling is in the shower and I'm sitting and trying to figure out a way to not have to leave New York.

This morning we were up at about 8 and the weather was looking nice and sunny so we decided to do the last thing that was on our list of things to do - see the Statue of Liberty.

We subway-ed our way down to Wall Street and walked to the Staten Island Ferry terminal.  The ferry goes every half hour and is free - better than paying $20 to hang out with tourists I say.

The ride was very cold though, took about 20 minutes and we got relatively close to the Lady.  Close enough for some snaps.  We turned around pronto and decided to go shopping at Bloomingdale's. Not the fanciest of the department stores here, but it did offer us an 11% discount.  

Bojan hadn't been on any of my shopping expeditions yet, but he did enjoy Bloomy's and the sheer range of things it had on offer, even if it was a bit overwhelming.

I ended up with a pair of J Brand jeans that I'd wanted forever and ever but couldn't try anywhere in Australia and didn't want to buy off the net without trying on.  Bojan bought some red and navy Ralph Lauren socks and a "The Who" t-shirt (he's going through a rock t-shirt phase I think).  I saw my Chloe perfume lady again and she tried running after me - it sent a shiver down my spine! 

The rest of the day we spent at Bleecker Street- the Village really grew on us today.  It was wonderful and sunny! We had some cupcakes again, this time in the park and walked up and down.  I went into some of the stores, which were nice and very well priced.  I loved Intermix!

Tomorrow is our proper final day - we are definitely going skating again and we'll see about the rest!
