My parents didn’t buy tickets for the US Open on Day 3, so we rented bikes and explored Central Park – so much bigger than I thought with a lot of hills! After a quick lunch, we explored a few shops while making our way to Mood Fabrics. After buying new fabric, my parents left to get ready for Wicked while Koen and I went back to Nintendo World and then to Chinatown to have dinner with Christina.
