We only had a few hours, and the weather ruled out a lot of things we could have done. Before we left, we asked the owners of Joey's House of Pizza in Nashville where we would find the best pizza in NY. We were told to go to Spumoni Gardens near Coney Island, so we decided to ride the subway all the way there and have lunch. It did not disappoint.
Then we rode the subway all the way back, stopping for a little dessert at a cute shop in Grand Central. We enjoyed this at our hotel and then grabbed our bags to take the bus back to the airport and fly home.
It was another amazing trip to NYC at Christmas, and we got home in time to start celebrating Christmas with our families.
I realized in writing these posts that I never actually blogged about our 2012 trip other than our engagement. I don't think you all care for all the details, but I thought I'd wrap up this trip's summary with some photos that covers the highlights of the 2012 trip. Enjoy!
