Breakfast at the Boathouse

Day 3 in the City dawned bright and warm.... my itinerary for the day was "Sex in the City"! Day started with a walk through the park and breakfast at the Boathouse...today's walk took me past the Bow bridge which is one of the most romantic bridges and a favourite in lots of films.
The boathouse overlooks the Lake in the centre of the park and has been used for several films but most famous for where Carrie & Big meet for lunch and end up in the lake!. The boathouse is only open between April & November and is sited in the centre of the park near to 72nd street.
Breakfast was scrummy, I opted for french toast & blueberries, with coffee & juice. The boathouse is obviously a great meeting place for the ladies as several ladies & their dogs were meeting for coffee.

Refreshed and energised I headed back up the park past the Hans Christian Anderson statue which is delightful.... and dedicated to all the children who lost their parents in 9/11. As you can see the attention to detail on the statue is amazing.

Moving up in the park I came across the Wollman rink ( which is usually an ice rink) which was being set up with a children's fair. I then headed out of the park by 59th street across from the Plaza passing my favourite bridge, and the ducks and turtles sunbathing!.
