This is the story of our trip to London in May of 2015.  It was part of a round the world trip that included France, London
and the USA (New York, Niagara Falls, Canyon Country and the Tall Trees)

This is Day 5 of our trip to New York.

Day - 5 New York Day-5
Today is the first day of our Niagara Falls to Washington DC Tour, but as it was a half day tour of the city followed by free time, I have kept it as part of our NYC excursion. Getting on our tour bus we started off along Central Park West to Fifth Avenue, then to Grand Central Station for a short tour.  Then we were taken past the "Charging Bull" near the NY Stock Exchange and onto the 9/11 monument and the soon to be opened One World Trade Centre.  Next was Pier 78.  Here we were dropped off and we made our way to the Rockefeller Centre where we got our timeslot for the "Top of the Rock" Observatory.  We wandered off and found St Patrick's Cathedral and had time to look at the various statues and wall panels near the Rockefeller Centre.  At the appointed time we made our way to the lift and enjoyed the lightshow on the way up to the observatory.  After taking many photos we went on to see the Chrysler Building foyer and again took the Subway home where we enjoyed pizza from Pizza Pete's for dinner.  Just one slice each of pizza for dinner, yes, just one slice as they were very large.
