Today would be our last full day in Manhattan, as we were planning on grabbing a car for the weekend. Just as well, since the weather was due to turn pretty wet and miserable! We went to Macy's to take a look at their famous window displays before heading up to Central Park. Macy's was great! We went in and had a look at their huge Christmas department, and fell in love with all the beautiful decorations! In the end, Mum decided to buy a Nutcracker figure with a Christmas countdown on it, because New York was full of Nutcrackers everywhere and it just summed up the whole trip to us!
We took a train to the north of the park since I'd only seen the south part before, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it, especially in Winter! There really wasn't anything there... we spent hours just wandering down to the south part of the park. I guess I should have researched it before we went there. The bottom half of the park is wonderful, though.
After Central Park we were all pretty exhausted, so we walked towards Times Square and the Rockefeller Center to try and snap some photos of the tree when it was less crowded, but unfortunately the Heavens opened and it poured down! Just in time for us to go and get the car for the rest of the holiday, really! We also heard that William and Kate were due to fly into New York soon and didn't really want to get involved with the extra crowding and heightened security, so the rest of our holiday would take us away from Manhattan!
