Uptown ~Day Four~

Today we continued with the get-on/get-off bus but focused on uptown.  It was such a contrast to yesterday’s travels through midtown, downtown and Brooklyn.  The contrast was particularly evident when we saw millionaires row on the Upper East Side and the amazing homes on the Upper West Side.  The rest of the bus trip took us through the interesting areas of Harlem and Morningside Heights.
It was good to hear the commentary as we wound our way through the suburbs.  Our legs are tired.  I would say that we have walked at least 25 miles since we arrived 4 days ago.  I’m not complaining because I love to walk and I think it is the best way to see the city but it just felt good to rest them for the morning. 
As soon as we got off the bus we walked down to a must do for all children who visit Manhattan – F.A.O Schwarz
From there we went to the New York Museum of Natural History.  Do you remember Dum Dum from the movie Night at the Museum?
Our kids do and loved having their photo taken with him. 

Tomorrow is our last day in NYC before we drive through New Jersey to Washington D.C. 
I know we’ll be leaving this city with a heavy heart.  It will always be a special place for our family filled with many happy memories.
