Open-top Buses and a Day at the Museum, New York, United States - 22nd October 2018

It's our first day into Manhattan itself, and we sign up to one of those open-top hop-on-hop-off bus tour things. Our first chosen stop is at the Museum on Natural History on Central Park West, near to the Ghost Busters building and putative location of the film Night at the Museum - a favourite of the boys and thus sepcifically requested by them. After that, we eat a hotdog and then cross over Central Park, via the turtle pond and an ice cream, before re-joining the bus and heading back to mid-town. We then - after some difficultly thanks to lack of mobile signal - meet up with Phil in his office near the top of the Rockerfeller Center, a location with one of the best office-window views ever, before finally getting the subway back to Pen Station and the train back to Millburn.
