Day 5 - Woodbury Commons, Comedy Show and a Very Late Night

Day Five turned out to be a very busy. We started off early at the Port Authority Bus Station on our way to Woodbury Commons for the shopping experience to end all shopping experiences! Purchases were made and everyone came away very very happy indeed.

During our walk around Times Square on Day Four, we got tickets for a comedy show on the Upper West Side for after shopping. Typical tourists, they seated us near the stage.  We knew we were going to get the attention of the comedians, and they did not disappoint!

From the comedy show we moved on to a few Irish Bars in the area which lead to finding a  Deli at 4.30am or 5.00am for some food. None of us can actually remember the exact time, again all in the name of good fun!

It Really Is A Wonderful Life

"I'm not crazy. It's Christmas Eve.
It's the one night when we all act a little nicer.
We...we smile a little easier. We...we...share a little more.
For a couple of hours we are the people we always hoped we would be.
It's really a miracle because it happens every Christmas Eve.
And if you waste that miracle, you're gonna burn for it. I know.
You have to do something. You have to take a chance and get involved.
There are people that don't have enough to eat and who are cold.
You can go and greet these people.
Take an old blanket out to them or make a sandwich and say, "Here."
"l get it now."
And if you give, then it can happen, the miracle can happen to you.
Not just the poor and hungry, Everybody's gotta have this miracle!
It can happen tonight for you all!
If you believe in this pure thing,
the miracle will happen and you'll want it again tomorrow!
You won't say, "Christmas is once a year and it's a fraud." It's not!
It can happen every day! You've just got to want that feeling!
You'll want it every day! It can happen to you!
I believe in it now.
I believe it's gonna happen to me, now. I'm ready for it!
And it's great. It's a good feeling.
It's better than I've felt in a long time.
I'm ready.
Have a Merry Christmas. Everybody."

Day 4 : Brooklyn Baby

If you ever plan a trip to New York please include a day or more in Brooklyn! We spent our Sunday looking around the Flea Market, Smorgsburg eating the most yummy doughnuts and pulled pork bap and some retail therapy in the Artists and Fleas Indoor Market!

We tried to go for cocktails in the Wythe Hotel but we didn't bring our ID's so it's going back on the to do list for next time!
