the last day

my time in the city was spectacular!  i didn't want it to end.  i wish i could spend more time wondering the streets of nyc and discovering tasty places to eat, little nooks to people watch in and just soak up the hustle and bustle of it all.
but, of course, all good things must come to an end.  and my last day was nothing short of wonderful.
we hit the pavement and headed to the southstreet seaport and walked down to the staten island ferry.
it's a free half hour ride that takes you to staten island and then back, and you pass by the statue of liberty. 
lots of photo opps!

we strolled around pier 17 and some of the little shops.  such a quaint, historic area.

we ended our day sipping coffee and chatting over yummy desserts at cafe lalo!
this charming cafe in the upper west side is from the movie "you've got mail."
it is at the top of my list of favorite movies of all time and i was excited to be able to relax while enjoying my first cannolli and a slice of irish creme cheesecake.  there were seriously too many things to choose from.

we ended our day by getting dolled up for a girls night out.
i was able to meet one of her girl friends from astoria.
we had a glass of wine at her place and then headed out to a trendy place called

my drink, the smooch.

and this is the lovely steff!
so glad to meet you and make a new friend!
it was a memorable trip and i hope to go back soon and bring the hubs along too!
