But one of the nights my sister was visiting, it was getting late and I wanted to do something very NYC!NYC!NYC! before the day was over. So we took the 2/3 train to Chambers St. and walked east until we hit the Manhattan entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge. We walked half way across towards Brooklyn and turned around. We still got a great view of the city without exhausting the kids.
I was hoping to catch the Wafels and Dinges Truck when we walked back into Manhattan, but it closed as we were picking out key chain souvenirs. So we ate at a Baskin Robbins/Dunkin Donuts combo restaurant. We all made our orderes, with Owen stealing the show with his chocolate chip mint ice cream with gummy bears. Not exactly a quintessential NYC experience, but who's to say it isn't? Any satisficer would say it was an amazing evening. And I really couldn't disagree with them.
