The view from the hotel room.
Walking the streets around Times Square, near the hotel.
Lunch (New York style pizza) at Grimaldi's in Brooklyn.
Followed by ice cream from Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory.
Then the walk back to Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge.
From there, to the Word Trade Center site. The pictures don't show the scale of it all very well.
Dinner in the East Village at Buenos Aires
My friend Dave hiding behind the Sangrias.
Then we went to a bar where I had a Blueberry Collins for the first time and sat with a group of locals, courtesy of Dave who is now a local. Then I was placed into a cab and headed back to the hotel.
Started out at Battery Park with a hazy view of The Statue of Liberty. Did I mention it was extremely hot while I was there? It was hot and hazy.
From there to Greenwich Village, where I was too busy looking around to take very many pictures.
Meskerem Ethiopian Cuisine for lunch.
Washington Square Park. I was still busy looking, but it would have been a great place for pics.
From there to stand in line to get tickets to see a show. After the show, dinner at Sardi's
Starting out at The Empire State Building.
Lots of hazy views from the top can be seen at my Flickr pages.
From there to Central Park.
Lunch was at Isabella's on the Upper West Side. Then to see Strawberry Fields
The last stop before hitting the airport was Rockefeller Center. 30 Rock is tall.
Back to the hotel to get the bags, and an uneventful cab ride to the airport. Great trip!!
Oh wait, then there was the canceled flight with the next available one in TWO DAYS. The weighing of possible options, the mad rush to get back to Manhattan to the Port Authority bus terminal, along with many other unhappy passengers. The bus ride through the night to Pittsburgh. Wait 3 hours to get a bus to Columbus. Still waiting for my luggage.
