Final New York Pictures

We got one last glimpse of the Empire State Building as we left St Patrick’s Cathedral Sunday evening after Mass. From there we went to Top of the Rock, the see the New York skyline at night. Just indescribable. And this was the last picture I took before my batteries died – not surprisingly, one […]

Final Day in New York

Our last day in New York, last Sunday, we started out with a visit to Central Park.  As it turned out, the entrance we used was very near the Alice in Wonderland statue.  I was especially excited about that, since we have reservations to have a character breakfast with Alice and the Mad Hatter when […]

A couple more from Day 2

After we left the 9/11 Museum, we found a very cool Irish Pub just a couple of blocks away to eat supper before we headed to the theater.  It was right behind one of the fire stations, and every wall and door were covered, and I do mean covered, with patches and stickers from first […]

New York – Day 2

Saturday morning we left the apartment early to eat breakfast and get to our timed entrance to the One World Center Observatory – I think on the 100th floor.  Oh my.  I am actually not a fan of heights, but that was so high that it didn’t even seem real.  And oh, the views!  Just […]

New York Day One – Final Post

Just a couple more pictures from our first day in New York – these will be the last ones from day one!  After we finished eating supper and found Radio City Music Hall, we had a couple of hours to just walk around and do a little sight seeing before time for the show to […]

New York – Day 1, Part 2

As we were finishing up our Hard Hat Tour, we got this great view of the second building of Ellis Island, which was used as the reception center from the time it was built until the facility closed in 1954.  The difference in the architecture was very interesting – this matches up so closely to […]

Friday in New York, Part 1

We got up early Friday morning & for breakfast had another food we’d promised ourselves we’d try – New York bagels.  There was a bakery even closer to our apartment than the pizza place was, and we ended up eating there every morning.  Oh my goodness.  Nothing like the frozen Lender bagels we can get […]

First Night in New York

Last Thursday Lindee & I headed to New York for a long weekend to celebrate our birthdays.  What an absolutely awesome time we had.  We flew into Newark, and then took the AirTrain, the NJ transit train, and maybe three subways to get to the Airbnb apartment we’d rented for our time there in Spanish […]

Election Day Pix

Tuesday when all of the kids were out of school for Election Day, but none of the parents were off work, all six were here to hang out together, along with Little Hope.  What a fun time we had.  We started off the morning making zucchini bread.  Here are these ever silly cousins spraying the […]
