Sunday morning was the rainiest of our days in Manhattan.
Thankfully it was our shortest day as our driver picked us up to head to the airport at 4pm.
But not before we hit up a few more sites.
After breakfast, we took the subway to Brooklyn to see Coney Island.
I knew the area got pretty trashed in in the hurricane. But I really wanted to see it for myself.
The boardwalk was shut down. The pier was missing boards.
It was sad. lonely. deserted. broken.
To perk ourselves after that slightly depressing trek, we headed back to Chelsea to take a walk on the High Line. Since it's an elevated park on old railroad tracks, it offered some pretty cool views of the city.
And with our last few hours, we had lunch and explored the Chelsea Market. It is a cool retail concourse with more than 30 high-quality shops, restaurants, bakeries and much more. Chelsea Market is a full-block collection of 17 buildings that once housed production facilities for Nabisco.
And that was it.
Ready or not, our mini-vacay had come to a close. Stanley picked us up and carted us back to the airport. I fell asleep on the drive to JFK. If you didn't know, those Lincoln Town Cars are wicked comfortable.
A and I are so grateful we had the opportunity to share these few days together in New York. Hopefully it will be our last getaway before I am pregnant.
P.S. I'll be posting an update on the status of our IVF on Weds so stop by and say hello.
