New York City Day 3: Union Square & Upper East Side

New York Union Square

Our third day in New York City wasn’t that eventful although it was quite relaxing. We reserved the day (night) to spend time with family so we didn’t really explore the city all that much. After all, we’ve done so much exploring in our first two days that we just wanted to take it easy. We just walked around the Union Square and 14th Street area and later made our way to Upper East Side. I hope you like the photos here, even if they’re just “buildings.” The architecture is great though!

We really didn’t take many photos but it was quite a relaxing walk in the neighborhood.



Then we made our way to Artichoke Basille’s Pizza. The Artichoke pizza was actually pretty good! I recommend it.

We just had to eat it outside and soak up the sights and sounds. It was a really hot and humid day though but you just have to ignore it. It’s all part of it!


After eating, we walked to catch the subway heading to Upper East Side. We had to meet with family at a certain hour and unfortunately, we had to join the rush hour crowd. The subway was packed!

You can definitely tell that rich people live here. We feel like we didn’t belong! Oh well. In the end, we explored the Upper East Side looking for a public restroom. We must’ve walked around for about an hour looking for one.

We got off of the train at Hunter College and later, we even made it to Central Park Zoo just looking for a public restroom! The heat and humidity plus my burning urge to pee was a horrible combination.

We didn’t take many pictures that day but I hope you enjoyed the ones we took. New York City architecture is always worth to look at.

    It seems so unreal seeing these photos after watching Gossip girl so many times! Upper east side really has it all! On that pizza bought me completely!

    • Ron

      Upper East Side is a whole other world. I feel like everyone is just so wealthy and that we didn’t quite belong there. Still a great place to explore though. Hope you’re well 🙂
