NYC: Day 2

Day 2 was slightly more relaxed than Day 1. We started off the day at a cute little Thai place called Spice, on 8th and 21st. I think I paid $8 for a curry dish and a dumpling appetizer, which includes tax and tip. The food and service were both quite good.

Afterwards, we set out to see the United Nations headquarters, over by the East River. We walked around the main floor gallery and gift shop for awhile, but we were too cheap to pay for the guided tour, so we couldn't see much more.

We were planning to go to the Guggenheim next, but discovered it closed at 5:45pm, so we'd only have two hours to explore it, so we walked up Madison Avenue instead, window shopping at Barney's, Bloomingdales, and various smaller shops.

Finally, we headed out to Flushing to visit a friend, who took us to Joe's Shanghai restaurant. I've taken note of the midtown location, and will likely drop by during the week sometime for more yummy dumplings.
