NYC: A Rooftop with a View

Well, after a flight that landed well before its scheduled arrival time, we made it to our hotel in New York by 2 pm yesterday—just in time to get settled and then go for a wander through SoHo, pause for coffee at Ground Support and then enjoy some live music in Washington Square Park before getting an early dinner at Lombardi's. Surprisingly, given its reputation as one of the best pizzerias in the city—if not the world—I've never been to Lombardi's before. 'Best pizza' is a hard prize to award but suffice to say, the margherita and a side of meatballs were very tasty.

One of the best things about our hotel is its rooftop terrace  on the seventh floor, which has an amazing view of the city, including the Empire State Building, the Chrysler and the Freedom Tower. We took some refreshments up there last night and sat and watches the sunset. It's definitely a feature that many pricier hotels in the city would envy.

After free breakfast in the hotel (bagels! Pastries! Granola bars! Fruit!), I'm off to the shops. J. Crew, it's been way too long...
