NYC: Day 1

My strategy for successfully completing a redeye journey includes a "no sleeping between 10am and 10pm" rule. Arriving early in the morning does you no good if you sleep until 3pm when you get to your destination.

To that end, we embarked on a whirlwind tour of lower Manhattan today, guaranteed to keep us awake. First, dim sum in Chinatown, followed by a bit of wandering around Central Park, a window shopping excursion down Fifth Avenue, coffee and dessert at the Rink Bar (Rockefeller Center) and a photo op in Times Square. Next, we took a short break in Union Square, and then had Korean BBQ for dinner in Koreatown before dodging a sudden downpour for three blocks on our way home.
