March 2004: New York, NY

We’re back visiting our family in Connecticut during Amber’s spring break, so I decided to take Amber and her friend Meaghan to New York City for two days.

Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake - Junior's, Brooklyn, New YorkIt was cold and dreary, but no precipitation the first day. We first had lunch at Junior’s in Brooklyn, where we had way too much food – but what we had was great. Of course, I washed it down with a chocolate egg cream (the real deal – made with Fox’s U-Bet syrup, thank you very much!). We barely had room for dessert, but not having a slice of cheesecake from Junior’s simply isn’t an option. I had a slice of Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake, which is absolutely amazing, decadent and delicious.

After we left Junior’s completely and actually (over) satiated, we went back to Manhattan and mostly hung around midtown. We went to Toys R Us, the Plaza Hotel, and Times Square. Later, we drove around the city, and back to Brooklyn. Amber wanted to see the house which was used in the movie Moonstruck as the home of the Castorini family. She has a fascination with this house!

The next day it was still dreary, but raining a little, so we drove around and headed back to Connecticut.
