You need to plan your days in NY. There are so many things to do and see.
Today we made our way down to Battery Park. The Lady Liberty looks small from the park so we decided to get the infamous Staten Island ferry for a closer look.
If you are wanting to take this ferry you’re in luck. It’s free! And it only takes 30 minutes over and 30 back. You have to get off the ferry at Staten Is and then re board it. It’s a good way to rest the feet!
We arrived back and walked along Water Street then Fulton’s Wharf area towards the Brooklyn Bridge. there’s some great street art.
We walked through Dumbo and stopped at the little beach near the children’s playground . It’s an oasis.
Wandering around this area is always interesting but we thought seeing it from the river would add a new perspective.
The East River commuter ferry came along so we jumped on and continued up the river towards Williamsburg.
We had 5 stops before getting off just near the United Nations at 34th St.
And then we walked. Through mid town and across town past Union Square and into Chelsea. We only just made it ready to go out for dinner!
Jordan has booked Buddakan. https://buddakannyc.com
If you’ve watched Sex and the City, it’s the restaurant that Carries and Big celebrate their engagement.
We had a beautiful dinner. It’s Asian fusion style and our group of 6 had the $75 pp banquet. It was delicious.
It’s big and showy and very dark!
There’s a big stairs where you can make a dramatic entrance- and hopefully not fall down it and really make an impact.

Great post 😃
Another wonderful day, Fran. You look relaxed and happy. You and Steve must be super fit after all your walking. Bx
