We started the day early heading up to the Bronx to see the zoo - as a results we managed to avoid all the crowds and see most everything before children and parents and bizarrely (or not) a lot of Orthodox Jewish families crowded in for the day. The Bronx zoo for the record is free Wednesdays hence why parents and scores of children were EVERYWHERE.
Having spent most the morning watching bears play, Jessica nad I grabbed a quick lunch (i.e. STREET MEAT - yum and gross all at the same time) and then went to do what will possibly be one of the most amazing and committed and stressing and physically exhausting things ever. We stood in line for rush tickets to Broadway.
It was a cold day, we had walked all morning and then lineup snaked 4-5 times around the center part of Times Square. But damnit, we were COMMITTED to this line up. So we got there "early" enough and proceeded to queue for the next 2 hours.
The end result? Cheap orchestra seat tickets to see STOMP in Soho.
The rest of the day was spent wandering up NoHo and SoHo (as
in No Hos allowed and So (Many) Hos! :P haha no, North of Houston, South of Houston - we had a collective epiphany as to why it was named that which I'm sure many New Yorkers would have eye rolled at)
What was lovely was the Chinatown and Littly Italy (which seem to be inexplicably married in most cities - FACT: China is not near Italy geographically) and had a really nice and cheap dinner at a dim sum resto.
ANNNDDD cue Broadway geek out right here.
My super secret covert attempt to take a picture of the set failed.
