Uptown and Downtown Bus Tour

Today we had booked a bus tour of New York. It operates on two loops. The Uptown Tour covers Central Park and the residential area of Manhatten. The Downtown Tour covers 5th Avenue, Wall Street and Ground Zero.

We only did part of the uptown tour, as it was such a nice day we decided to go for a wander through Central Park, which completely removed you from the city. You couldn't hear any traffic noise or see many skyscrapers.

From Central Park we walked down 5th Avenue taking in all the designer shops. We saw the Apple Store and walked down to the Rockerfella Centre where the Nintendo World Store is.

After that we rejoined the downtown tour and basically went round the rest of New York taking in Little Italy, China Town, NYU and many other landmarks.
