"concrete jungle where dreams are made of, there's nothing you can't do!"

If you like cityscapes then you'll love Day 02 ha! Saturday was packed with a lot of cool happenings making it one of my favorite days (realizing that I am referring to every day as 'my favorite' whoops). We explored a lot of historical sites today from The Empire State Building (amazing) to Grand Central Station (equally as amazing).

Visiting the Empire State Building's 86th observation deck made for some breathtaking views. We spent quite a lot of time up there taking plenty of pictures.

The New York Public Library was amazing! So so beautiful inside and out. Unfortunately the Grand Reading room was closed but the Rotunda just outside was beautiful.

Chandelier of Grand Central Station. This was our 3rd stop on our historical building tour of New York I guess you could say. With the thousands of people and little holiday market, this place amazes me just as much as it did the first time I saw it.

We got to go into the under-construction St. Paul's Cathedral just off of Fifth Avenue. Just in time for 5:00 Saturday evening mass. This place was incredible and I'm anxious to see it after construction.

And of course the flower shops on every corner to add some color to the streets. It's the little things of New York.
