Walk along the waterfront in NYC

How pretty is this view of New York? Although quite windy, we found a clear and mild day to walk along the waterfront in New York City and enjoy the view.

The waterfront was vibrant with people playing tennis, jogging, socializing, and relaxing. It was our last day in New York, and it turned out to be the perfect activity to wrap up our trip. Nothing beats a relaxing walk by the water with decent weather and a fabulous view.

When you visit New York, or any big city, it is nice to take some time to slow down, walk around, and take in the sights. It really is a nice way to drink in the beauty of the city you are visiting.

Well, not too much to say, I think the photos show how pretty the walk was! Enjoy!

New York City Fire Museum

The official museum for the New York Fire Department is a cute little museum tucked away in SOHO and jam packed with firefighting history. I am so happy we found this museum!

The museum is a multi-story historical time capsule filled with everything from historical events dating back to the beginning of our country, to artifacts spanning centuries of firefighting in New York. There is even a room dedicated to 9-11, which brought tears to my eyes.

In addition to artifacts, there are educational timelines and videos which show events from colonial times as well as more modern catastrophes. We really enjoyed walking through the different floors and exhibits as well as sitting down and watching videos which detailed historical events.

One of the displays which really caught my eyes were these fire grenades. Some of them are made from beautiful glass and they look like fancy perfume bottles! I am stunned that they made such pretty glass bottles which are meant to be thrown into a fire and break in order to help extinguish flames. I feel like if one of these was in my home in the 1800’s I would be half asleep one day and accidently dab it on my skin thinking it was my perfume. haha

The New York City Fire Museum is located at 278 Spring Street in New York, and it is something you should definitely add to your itinerary next time you visit the big apple. There is also a section for kids, so this is an activity the whole family can enjoy. We really enjoyed it!

ghostbusters fire station new york

Ghostbusters! This was one of my favorite movies as a kid, so it was natural for me to want to stop by the fire station where a lot of the magic happened in the movie. Quite literally!

The Ghostbusters fire station is a functioning firehouse. We saw fire fighters on duty, and we were able to peek into the side door where we could see an engine ready to go. For those of us who were looky-loos, we were all outside taking pictures.

I was happy to be able to take a quick photo in front of the firehouse despite the strong winds blowing right at me; I think you can tell the wind was strong by looking at me! haha

Speaking of Ghostbusters, I found out there is another sequel to the original movie, and it is in theaters right now! This version features the original actors. I am so excited! I am looking at my schedule as we speak to find a day to go see it. It looks so good! Have you seen it yet?

If you love Ghostbusters like me, there is also a fabulous Lego display at the Lego store near Rockefeller Plaza. I snapped a photo, which you can see below. The marshmallow man is my favorite villain from the movie.

Well, that’s my touristy, fan-girl visit to the Ghostbusters firehouse! If you love the movie like me, and happen to be in NYC, definitely stop by and get your superfan photo!

Thanks for stopping by!
