The next morning, we found out some bad news....our car had been towed! And to make things worse, it wasn't even our car, but a rental that needed to be returned that day at 1:30! It sure made our first day in NYC start off with a bang.....a horrible nightmare type of bang. We spent the whole first morning trying to figure out how to get our car back, pay the towing fee and return it before 1:30 to avoid getting charged another day's rental fee. We had to go to the rental car place and print off a paper to prove that we rented that car, then take a long bus ride to pay for the towing fee...$180.00. Ouch. Then we had to go across Manhattan for about 45 min to the towing lot (which was completely full!) and get our car, and then drop off our rental car by 1:30 to the rental car company. Not to mention, we also got a $80.00 parking ticket. Double Ouch. It was awful and made us hate NYC and want to go home. But we got it figured out and were finally on our way to the fun stuff by mid afternoon. What a day!
Momofuku Milk Bar is a yummy place to visit. My brother Jeremy who travels to NYC a lot recommended it. We got the "crack pie" and the "cereal milk." The crack pie is supposedly as good as crack and as addictive too that you just can't stop eating it. It was more like a cookie bar than a pie and it was pretty dang addictive. The cereal milk tasted like the last few gulps of milk that you drink from the bowl after your cereal is gone, but in a cold glass bottle.
The Lego store is always cool. Every type and color of Legos that you could ever want!
And of course, no trip to NYC is complete without a trip to Times Square. There is so much to see and do here! It is so crowded with people and taxis, and craziness everywhere. We got to try some "pie in a jar" that people were handing out for free. We saw a girl get captured by the police and handcuffed. We saw some girls that looked like they were wearing bikinis with big feather hats but when you got closer you realized that their bikinis were just painted on their bodies and they were actually completely naked. You never know what you are going to see in NYC that's for sure! Never a dull moment!
