The Plaza Hotel, situated adjacent to Central Park, is one of New York City’s premiere landmarks standing tall and proud for over a 100 years now. The Hotel’s been featured in countless films and other pop culture mediums, such as the well-known children’s book, Eloise, or even F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. For my birthday in January, I decided to head on over for Afternoon High Tea at the Palm Court, located on the ground floor of the Plaza. Here are some photos from the day!
While I killed time at the 24-hour Apple Store across the street until my reservation, I could see The Plaza from the store!
Right outside of The Plaza is Karl Bitter’s Abundance at the Pulitzer Foutain. It was the first heavy snow here in New York City this year, and as you can see, it was so beautiful!
I finally walk in for the first time in my life… Wow!! Look at those chandeliers!
I took a peek into the Palm Court, where I’ll be having my fancy tea!
Finally, I enter.
The waiter surprised me with birthday strawberries, and had the live pianist play a tune of “Happy Birthday’!
This cucumber sandwich got a standing ovation from me (in my head)!
Their mini cupcake has a “Plaza” logo on it!
After the scrumptous meal, we walked around and found wonderful things!

Good bye Plaza, you’ll be seeing me again very soon!
