Guide to New York City Day 4

Our first agenda of the day is The Statue of Liberty because they have several schedules that we have to follow because it required us to ride a ferry to Liberty Island, otherwise we won't make it if we go after noon. My friends and I started off in the Battery Park which is also the place to the The Sphere, 9/11 Memorial, but we didn't maintain to go there :/

The weather on Day 4 was the worst because it was raining, windy, foggy, and grey just. like. London. But we were not complaining because we were so thankful of the opportunity to be in NYC (I really can't stop gushing how in awe I was of that city!) Also, my very talented photographer friend, Fitria Tjandra, documented the whole thing beautifully with her camera that was very heavy but she brought it to make memories.

The Statue of Liberty took half of our day already, so after that we went to Fifth Avenue to recharge our eyes with beautiful window displays and spent a little penny here and there. We went our own ways because waiting for people to shop would be time-consuming and everybody had their own list to be checked. I, myself, strolled around and stumbled on The Rockefeller Center Plaza where they had flags of countries around the world--a sight not to be missed while in New York--also since it was an Easter Break, they had Easter Egg installations in the front of it, reminded me of the Easter Egg Hunt in London where they had all kinds of creative eggs designed by artists and designers.

I shopped some makeup products in Sephora--at that time I was pretty blind about makeup so I didn't buy much, just a NARS blusher and BITE lipstick--and I'm cursing myself right now because U.S.A. is a home of many amazing makeup products! And I just got those two in Sephora!

Dinner was amazeballs, FYI. We ate in Totto Ramen. Glorious. We walked to a snack joint called Holey Cream, then afterwards my friend's friend apartment, and back to the AirBNB at last.
