Days 4&5: More eating, shopping, & Rock of Ages

On Saturday, we got an early start and headed to the Lower East Side to check out the Hester Street Fair.  It was a very low key flea market with some yummy treats like pie on a stick!  After checking out the fair, we stopped by Baby Cakes.  Known for their gluten free menu items, I would highly recommend the donuts. 

 Then it was off to Toy Tokyo to find a gift for Bruce.
 Later that day, I took the subway to Lincoln Center to shop at Century 21 and Zara. 
 That night, we had dinner at STK's rooftop. 

I had the yummy ahi and there was a lemon cheesecake that was to die for!
Right outside the restaurant was the Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream truck.  Despite just eating cheesecake, I reasoned that I walked so many miles on this trip that I could have some ginger ice cream, too.  I'm so glad I did! It was delicious.
We had a late breakfast on Sunday at Chelsea Market. I finally had my lobster roll and it was delicious and worth the $17.

Then it was time to burn some calories walking on the High Line.   Beautiful sites from up there.

That night was Rock of Ages.  So much fun. 

Good night New York!  We left early the next morning.  Already dreaming of my return to this amazing city.
