The Big Apple

We had an eight-hour layover in New York on the way to South America, and so we hopped on the train into the city. It was nearing sunset when we arrived in Times Square and we were dazzled by the bright advertising lights and crowds of people.

We had a quick walk around the edge of Central Park, checking out the famous sights like the Home Alone/ Die Hard bridge, the horse-drawn carriages and the semi-frozen lakes. It looked more autumnal than wintery to us, but it was beautiful. 

Just before we had to go back to the airport, we strolled down 5th Avenue, checking out the fancy boutiques and the hotdog stands. We had a quick look up at the Empire State Building, before calling it a night.
