Live from New York....it's almost friday night
I'm doing a quick blog from the Apple store. We are having a great time, our hotel is wonderful, the weather is cold enough that we need a coat but it's still comfortable, and we are seeing a lot more than we thought we'd have time for. We got to our hotel last night around 7, we walked 10 minutes to Times Square where we had a great dinner at Maxie's. We took the subway to the Stanton Island Ferry and sailed that to the island and back. (Thanks Mark, we loved it!!) After one more walk around Times Square we headed to bed around midnight. We woke up early this morning, ate a yummy breakfast at Pershing Square, and hopped aboard our grayline sightseeing tour bus. Thank you to the 20+ people who insisted we take the double decker bus tour, it's been so informative. We feel like Manhattan experts now after listening to the tour guide talk about the history and culture of NY. We've seen more than we would of any other way, too. We stopped for an authentic NY deli lunch and then sightseeing at the WTC site. We also toured St.Patrick's church. We are now doing some shopping before heading over to Central Park. Tonight's plan includes dinner at Booby Flay's Mesa Grill followed by the Empire State Building. I hope to post pictures soon! Miss you all!
