uj met us up there; before we all made our way down to Fatty Crab – a popular restaurant that i found from Adventures of Yoshi🙂 i asked carol to join us – and in my stupidity i didnt realise that there were TWO joints – and told her to go to the broadway one downtown. consequently i made her travel double the distance to come back up west…sooo sorry!!=[ [rofl got paid out big time by the boys for my mistake..]

the weather got pretty bad after we left fatty crab – raining + the temperature dropped [which was pretty contrasting to the super hot morning – new york you are weird], so thats why a lot of these photos look overcast. until later when it got hotter again…dropped by the Williamsburg Pier

day 8! uj’s last day in new york:(  last meal?  Dinosaur BBQ in harlem. recommended to lichan by a dude he met on his flight in to NY, apparently best bbq in NY? the verdict afterwards was probably something along those lines; it was pretty damn good and the guys kept talking about the bbq sauce for HOURS afterwards -___-

 

CIMG6025

cool huge bridge.

 

CIMG6024

walking to dino bbq, we see it!

close up of the ribs. hehe.

 

IMG_6891

key lime pie. twas goood.

 

last stop, chinatown. felt so weird to enter an area that felt so familiar…and so freakin asian [again]. chinatown is about 10x as big as our tiny lil street in melb [although melbourne city is so asian in itself maybe the entire city is ‘chinatown’ haha] so it felt even more like we were just strolling in asia.

 

CIMG6028

CIMG6031

…asian l’arc de triomphe? rofl i have no idea what that was. confucius park??? hahahaha.

 

CIMG6032

CIMG6033

….indeed.

 

said our farewells to uj!:( then it was DUMPLINGS TIME. one of my local friends raved on about how good the dumplings are in NY, so of course we had to try! not to mention they are ridiculously cheap – it was something like $1.25 for 5 dumplings or more, and the place we tried out, Tasty Dumplings, was so good the NYPD were ordering there=P

 

 

…iv totally maxed out my upload limit for 4 email accounts already; see how i go otherwise il have to make a new email to upload photos for the last few NY posts haha!
