Picture Blog - NYC Trip

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Me a few blocks from the Empire State Bldg. It's the bldg behind me that's so tall you can't see the top of it ;) It was emoticon snowing that day !

Me at Battery Park with The Statue of Liberty behind me on the left and Ellis Island on the right. It was freezing that day and snowing so the background is nearly lost in the overcast sky.

Valerie and I at Battery Park

Myself and Valerie on the NYC subway

Rockefeller Plaza - The Today Show

Blake Shelton (2 feet away from me) The Today Show

View of Central Park East from the Museum of Natural History (Central Park West & 79th)

There are lots more pictures that I wanted to post but SP says they're too large.

My BFF Valerie and I were in NY for less than 4 days and here's what we did. Times Square - a Broadway Show - Rockefeller Center - The Today Show - Madison Ave - 5th Avenue - The NY Public Library - Macy's - Grand Central Station - Battery Park - Wall Street - The 9/11 Memorial - Madison Square Garden - Penn Station - The Empire State Bldg. - The Flatiron Bldg.
The Museum of Natural History - Central Park.

We ate a local Irish Pub - a local Brick Oven Pizza Italian Restaurant - a coffee cart - a hot dog cart - a real NY Deli - a real NY Diner.

The weather held us back from doing a few things. We wanted to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and see the Historical Seaport. We also wanted to take a river tour to see the Manhattan skyline.

We walked anywhere from 4 - 8 miles every day we were there. It was such a great trip and Valerie and I were such wonderful travel mates. It's such a blessing to have a friend like her in my life. The next trip is with the hubbys- the 4 of us are thinking Vegas!

    Surlygirl!!! I loved seeing your pictures from NY!!! What a great time and you seem to hit all the hot spots,,,,,,,,,, including seeing Blake Shelton up close!!! Talk about HOT!!!! emoticon That trip is on my bucket list,,,,, one day,,, I will get there,,, really looks like you and your bff had a great time ,,,, you inspired me to post some of my pics..... hey,,, if Sparks says that your pic are too big,,,,, make your pics smaller by making a copy and altering them into document size or web size,,,, not that hard,,,, but you have to play with the picture program that you have.

Thanks for sharing!!!

    That sounds good. Although you probably won't be able to do as much walking. At least not at one time. emoticon
