Post-NYC Marathon sightseeing

P1010562The second day after NYC marathon, we headed out for some serious sightseeing. After breakfast we met Hilde and started at the Top of the Rock. I think this is the best view of NYC, you can see both the Empire State Building and Central Park.

We continued our long walk up to Little Italy and SoHo. It was dark when we reached SoHo, but the stores were still open. I loved SoHo! In between all the sightseeing we managed to do some shopping, wich made the day perfect.

We walked all the way up to Times Square. We ended the day at an Italian restaurant, Trattoria Trecolori, right next to our hotel.
