Catching up - NYC

I've neglected my blog and I regret not posting about things I want to remember. One of those things is my trip to NYC in May with Shauna. It was a lot of fun. It was her first time there and she was quite taken with big city life. She had the subway system figured out by the end of the first day.

A nice view from the plane.

Shauna on Liberty Island. It was colder than we expected, so we both had to buy sweatshirts while waiting in line. It completed the "We are tourists!" look. Although, considering how many times I was asked directions, I occasionally doubted that I looked like one. Husband said I just looked like one who had been there before :)

Beatles clothes in The Hard Rock Cafe. Seeing this was one of those moments that cause me to just stop for a minute.

St John the Divine. We stumbled across this in search of something else. I want to go back and spend some time there sometime.

There is a set of 4 small sculptures there. Here is one of them.

The Friends apartment building. It was fun walking around Greenwich Village to find this.

Our celebrity sighting - Leona Lewis. Very nice and beautiful.

We saw Hairspray!

The next day we went to see Curtains. We didn't know anything about it, other than it starred David Hyde Pierce. It was fun to see him.

We got to spend and evening with Tippy and Dave, who gave us a great sampling of life in The East Village.

The restaurant used for Seinfeld. This is what we were looking for when we discovered St. John the Divine. I had a decent burger and fries there.
Look familiar?

Me at Strawberry Fields. We had to wait a while to be able to take this picture. There was a group of high school students there who annoyed me by acting goofy all over the memorial. I was highly offended. Yes, I know I'm showing my age, but it bothered me.

Lots of fun and lots of good food.

I'm so darn jealous of you getting to go to that diner. It was the only part of Seinfeld I liked.
