Day Seven was our last full day in NYC. After lunch at Nougatine, we headed out to be tourists some more. Double-decker tourist buses were ridden. Beautiful/historically-significant things were seen. Pictures (almost 500 over the course of 2 days) were taken.
We'd had mixed luck with tour guides the day before (when we hopped off for a few tourist attractions): one horrible (although the driver was awesome and it amused me when he told me about how much he hated the guide), one decent-but-informative, one self-absorbed ass (part-time writer, part-time tour guide...), and one nice funny lady who clearly loved her city. When we hopped on the tour bus after lunch this day, we found ourselves with a hilarious, knowledgeable, clever guide, and ended up sitting with him for the entire loop (part of which we'd seen before with other guides) and laughing pretty much the entire time. We hopped off to grab a quick-if-none-too-impressive dinner at a place with horrible waiters and $6 beers, then headed back to find a spot on a night bus. More beautiful things were seen. More pictures were taken...
