NYC: Empire State Building, Grand Central Station & the AMNH

Our third and last day in New York City was just as packed as our first and second day. We hit up the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station and the American Museum of Natural History.  It was as hot as the other days, but since we were only outside to get from one place to another, it was not as unbearable as the day before.

We started at the Empire State Building because our teenager wanted to see it, however, when we arrived he refused to go up because he is afraid of heights!  The little one is not afraid of anything and begged me to take him up anyway, so off we went!

We then moved to Grand Central Station.  Have you ever read the poem I Like You by Sandol Stoddard?  I love it and I love the references to getting lost in Grand Central Station.  It would be a fabulous place to get lost in.  I was sad that our train to Philadelphia departed from Penn Station and not Grand Central.

Grand Central Station is on trend with the mint obsession!
Finally, we ended the day at the American Museum of Natural History.  It is huge and amazing, we were on our way out and then got lost only to realize there were entire sections of the museum we didn't even get to see!

This concludes the New York City portion of our vacation and I really appreciate you reading and coming along with me!
