***WARNING: Post is FULL of pictures and is very long.
Tuesday Tony and I got up early to head into town and catch a train to New York City. We crammed lots of sightseeing and WALKING into three days. I’m not feeling like a play-by-play so pictures will have to tell the story:
Grand Central Terminal
Statue of Liberty
World Trade Center Site
(The area is HUGE! It’s hard to get the idea from the picture. You could see deep grooves in the marble of the surrounding buildings from what must have been the towers coming down. Sad.)
Carnegie Deli (overrated–This is Tony’s corned beef on potato knish after he had stuffed his face. You can see my chicken soup with vegetables in the background. I was so sick of eating junk and opted for something light. It was less than good.)
Tony wanted Peking Duck BAD! He spent the afternoon scouting out the perfect place. (He’s pretty proud of himself for catching my reflection in the window. Nerd.)
(Notice my chicken and broccoli in the background. Not too adventurous of an eater.)
My pictures of the cast are blurry. Tony got the best one on his phone. I’ll spare you the rest.
Lounging in Central Park
Anyone who can tell me what building this is wins a prize!
FAO Schwartz (playing the piano from BIG)
My visit to Good Morning America (I think they all drink alot of coffee. I couldn’t get anyone to stand still long enough for a good picture. That or else I can’t use my camera correctly. Anyway, Imagination Movers were there for a concert.)
The site of Project Runway (I had wanted to find it but was tired of walking. We got off at the wrong subway station and TA-DA! I was stoked!)
30 Rock (Can’t wait for the new season.)
View from The Empire State Building (aka The Building of Many Stairs and Crowded Elevators. Don’t forget your deodorant!)
ESB at night
John’s Pizza (Delicious and cool. Inside an old tabernacle. The place was so huge that my flash couldn’t light up enough for a clear picture of the lanterns.)
That about sums it up. Boy, were we tired. We did get subway passes but walked alot. We also had trips into lesser known parts to get yummy cupcakes at Magnolia and frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity. A good three days spent together. We were ready to get back to a slower pace and ride in the Sharpes car again. Anything to get off our feet!
