so on the second day, we were up and at 'em and on our way to the brooklyn flea.
on sundays, it's held inside the landmark williamsburg savings bank.  such beautiful architecture and wonderful finds!  i highly reccomend it if you are ever in brooklyn.
there were so many vintage items consiting of clothing, furniture, jewelry, knick-knacks, etc.

after that we lingered around brooklyn and had some pie at four and twenty blackbirds.
can we say devine!!  it was so worth the nearly 2 mile walk it took us to get there.

honey pumpkin and plumb crumb.
believe me on this.

the last trip i made to nyc, my camera battery thought it was a good time to die when we made it to the brooklyn bridge.  so this time i made sure i had my extra battery in my purse so that i wouldn't miss the opportunity to photograph to the bridge and the skyline of nyc across the east river.

they have a nice park that's so peaceful and beautifully landscaped. 

after a leisurely stroll, we headed back into the city for a visit to the empire state building. 
surprisingly, we did not have to wait in any long lines and were herded through quickly to the top.

even though it was somewhat hazy, the views were still pretty amazing.
it was so calming at the top, crowded, but still peaceful.  everyone was in awe of the vastness of the city below.

after another full day, we headed home and i was able to catch a glimpse of the flatiron building.  such an amazing structure.
so we headed home, showered and got all dolled up for dinner and night caps in greenwich, ct.
a very charming and quaint town not too far out of the city.  i had the most amazing pumpkin soup with roasted seeds and riccotta gnocci.  i still dream about that meal. 
and that concludes day two.  i'm so thankful for all the sweet memories i have.  and my heart misses the city and wants to go back again real soon!
