Day Three-Five


***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

NYC

Statue of Liberty

NYC

NYC

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.)

NYC

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.)

NYC

Chinatown

NYC

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.)

NYC

(Notice my chicken and broccoli in the background. Not too adventurous of an eater.)

NYC

Boeing, Boeing

My pictures of the cast are blurry. Tony got the best one on his phone. I’ll spare you the rest.

Outside our hotel heading to Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill for our anniversary dinner. (FYI–LOVED our hotel. 1/2 a block from Times Square with nice rooms and afforadble price for NYC.)

Lounging in Central Park

Anyone who can tell me what building this is wins a prize!

NYC

FAO Schwartz (playing the piano from BIG)

NYC

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.)

NYC

NYC

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!)

NYC

30 Rock (Can’t wait for the new season.)

NYC

NYC

View from The Empire State Building (aka The Building of Many Stairs and Crowded Elevators. Don’t forget your deodorant!)

NYC

ESB at night

NYC

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.)

NYC

NYC

Times Square

NYC

NYC

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!

  1. Looks like fun! I always like going there but I am always ready to leave when I do. I don’t know how people live there.

  2. I’m not sure of the name of the building you were quizzing about, but I think it’s the building used from the first Ghostbusters movie. Are you the keymaster?…I am the Gatekeeper…

  3. Greta,
    Are you a “Runway” fan?
    OMG – Aunt Jeni and I can live without it!
    BTW, is the building the one from “GhostBusters”?
    Have fun…Love Uncle Bob

  4. Gret, how fun! So glad you and Tony could get away. I love NY. So jealous, looks like you had an amazing time. XO.
