One of the things I loved the most about renting an apartment was that for a brief period of time, we felt like real New Yorkers. We were housed right down the street from Gramercy Park - the only private (and locked) park in Manhattan. From the sidewalk you could see the paths in the park with squirrels scurrying to and fro.
I love how nature still thrives in this vibrant city!
On this day, we took it easy and just strolled around and shopped in the Gramercy Park and Union Square areas. A van was booked to take us to the airport where we were there were tons and tons of people flying out for the holidays.
It was a fast vacation with a lot packed in! I'm so glad we got to take the kids to see NYC at Christmas-time!
