I know you know how much I loved our first trip to NYC last month! We had the best time with our son, Micah, who is a grad student at Columbia Business School. Yep–very proud mom.
We packed a lot into the weekend visit and got to see a lot of the tourist places, eat a lot of great food, and see a lot of cute little dogs! It was an amazing weekend and I am already counting down the months till our next trip.
On Saturday we met for breakfast at a local place called Barney Greengrass also known as The Sturgeon King! Hence the posed, somewhat aloof picture of me outside the restaurant under the ever present scaffolding in the city. We spent some time hanging out waiting for Micah–some of my cronies are in the background. I would have a lot of friends in the city. Trust me.
Then it was on to take the ferry to go see The Statue of Liberty. Nothing says tourist like a ferry full of people being hustled on and off by a rather forceful employee who told us to “step quickly” repeatedly. It was a great visit and all of the photos are thanks to the hubby who took far better pictures that day.
Then it was off to see the Empire State Building. We paid the extra bucks to skirt past the lines and have immediate access and it was money well spent. We skipped right through and made our way without delay and saw the fabulous panoramic views.
I love the Flat Iron Building–don’t you?
Amazing city, amazing people, amazing stories. I just wanted to soak it all in. And I did!!!
