Day 3: New York: Contrast and afternoon tour in Brooklyn: Brooklyn Promenade, Empire Fulton Ferry Park - Jane's Carousel, Brooklyn Bridge, Front Street, Jay Street, Manhattan Bridge


The first thing we do is look out the window and see again the impressive views we have of the Empire State Building from the bed, with which we immediately recharge our energy to prepare and start with the third day of this trip to New York in 11 days.
Today as we commented we have booked the New York Contrast Tour in advance, it is one of the best excursions in New York, with which we will know that other part from the city.
If you want to make the tour with fewer people you can book the New York VIP Contrast tour that takes place in a minibus for up to 15 people.
We have met at 8:00 in the morning at the Renaissance Times Square hotel on 7 Avenue, between 47th and 48th Street, right next to Times Square, so we don't get too entertained, leaving a few minutes before 7 : 00 in the morning of our hotel the Holiday Inn Times Square, for breakfast at Dean & DeLuca, another of the most recommended places in the area, where we can find a variety of fresh products, both for breakfast and for lunch.
We ordered a couple of pastries plus 1 cappuccino and a large American for $ 14.92, the price that we have been paying for breakfast these days or so and we believe that it is quite tight telling that we are in the heart of New York and part the coffees we have to say that they are size XL.

It's a little after 1 noon when we leave the rest of the group that follows Times Square and we make our way to Grimaldi's, the place we have chosen to eat and where we have to queue for 30 minutes and it could not be so Easy to eat a pizza in the best room in New York.

Once located on the top floor of the restaurant we ordered a small pizza for two with pepperoni, double cheese and onion plus two soft drinks and coffees for $ 37, a price that we can say is expensive for what we have eaten, but that without a doubt , being in New York and considering the famous place, we believe that it is more than adjusted.

A few minutes past 3 in the afternoon when we leave Grimaldi's and despite going through Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, where they say they eat the best ice cream in the city, we think it is better to leave it for a little later and we go directly to Brooklyn Heights Promenade, from where we have the first views of the New York skyline, how could it be otherwise, they leave us with their mouths open.

It's almost 5:00 in the afternoon when we decide that the time has come to have that exp
