34. Travel to NYC

New York City BABY!!!!!!!
I always wanted to go to the "big apple" and figured I'd go once, get my fill and be happy I could say I was there. Boy was I wrong! I loved it and can't wait to go back!!!!!

Here's a few photos from our worldwind adventure to the city. A GINORMOUS (is that a word) thank you to Joann who mapped out the day, showed us how to use the New York subway system and gave us the best tour in the time allowed. We really can't thank you enough.

Waiting for the train to take us into Penn Station (I got in trouble for taking photos here....oops)

Then we walked over to Bryant Park / New York Public Library

And then off to one of my favourites stops of the day Grand Central Station

The lighting here was my favourite. I could totally picture a reception here.

Rockerfeller Center (wish I could see the Christmas tree sometime)

Vicki at NBC Studios

The Columbus Circle and entrance at Central Park
I didn't go in to Central Park but I walked the edge of it. What I could see, it was beautiful

The Big Piano (you know the movie that Tom Hanks was on the big piano???) at F.A.O. Schwarz toy store

And last but not least The Empire State Building that for whatever baby brain reason I kept calling the Eiffel Tower even though I FULLY knew and know the difference....eeesh!!!!

And that's another thing off my 101 in list though I'm convinced going to NYC might be put back on the next one :)

It looks like you had an amazing time!
That cathedral looks so out of place against the modern building. LOL
The Tom Hanks movie was "Big".
I'm glad you had fun!!
