May 18, 2014 Spring Break in NYC – Day 3
We got up pretty early on day 3 and took the train to our alma mater – Columbia! We started the day by having breakfast at Tom’s Restaurant, which looked exactly the same as we remember it. Even our server lady was the same!
Then we walked around the beautiful campus. It was a gorgeous day but very cold.
For lunch, we went to Mill Korean Restaurant, one of our favorite spots from our college days. We got our usual orders: bento box for me and kimchi fried rice for Yufei.
After lunch, we took an uptown train to the Cloisters. It was one of those places I had always wanted to visit during college but never got around to.
Art Hum flash back! We totally studied this painting in that class.
We spent most of the afternoon there, then took a bus back to campus. We sat on the Low steps for a while, watching the sun go down like we used to. Then we headed to Deluxe for dinner. This is another place we used to frequent back in the day. They used to have $5 burger Mondays, and the night before I was curious to see if they still had it. I went on their website and found out that they did!! We were so excited. But when we got there, there was a sign on their window saying that starting that day, $5 burger Mondays had become $7 burger Mondays. This was a little disappointing, but it didn’t stop Yufei from getting the burger anyway.
We had tickets to see Avenue Q that night, so we headed there after a delicious dinner.
It was such a fun show and the perfect way to end a lovely New York day!
