Day 2 in New York City, we spent the day shopping and exploring around our hotel. We stayed at the Empire Hotel on the Upper West Side. It was the perfect location, most places were within walking distance. I would highly recommend staying here especially if you have watched any episodes of Gossip Girl!
The view from the Empire Rooftop was spectacular, it overlooked the Lincoln Center where the New York City Ballet & Philharmonic Orchestra performs.
We ventured down to the subway to eat at Carmine's for dinner! The portions were huge & the food was amazing.
