NYC 1st post.

Let just say it was exhausting!!  I cant even begin to tell you how much my legs and feet hurt.  We walked and took the subway everywhere.   The first day we went to  ground zero but you cant really see much because of all the fencing. Plus they are putting up the new building.  But then someone had to find a restroom and we went inside this cool building.
 

Inside was really neat but I just couldnt get a good shot.
Once inside you went up these steps and you could look out the window to ground zero.
There was also can art all around the inside of this building/mall.
I couldnt see the designs at first. Then my sister said look at it through your camera.  And that worked and you could see the designs.  Funny.
Then it started getting dark.
 After some shopping, where I didnt buy anything.  It might be a great deal it was still a 100.00 purse. Im not spending a 100.00 dollars on something that isnt dog related. LOL
So then we went back to our hotel and got ready to do see .....

Great show and funny.  There were a couple of time where Sean Hayes did some funny mannerisms and then Kristin Chenoweth would try not to laugh. She would have  her head down or turned but then you could see her shoulders shaking.  It was funny.  There were a couple of unplanned funny things that happened.  Thats always entertaining.
The next morning we went to Radio City and saw the Rockettes Christmas show.
It was a very nice show.  They did some 3-D stuff that was really neat.  Then they did this thing with a bus. The bus was real but the drive through the city was using a background. It looked almost real.  I dont know, its  hard to describe.   Then we went to Central Park.  Wow,was that a crowed place.   People everywhere. I just cant describe how many people were there.  Not like in the movies.
More tomorrow.

Looks like fun! You guys did a lot in a short time - no wonder you are so tired! My parents were in NYC the weekend before you for their first time ever (and now they are on a cruise) - I think they had a good time.

I agree - $100 is only worth it for dog related stuff! LOL!

I'm glad you enjoyed your trip here! It's SO weird for me to see pictures of people vacationing here! LOL

Lian said...

Love the design inside the building, like a Russian doll?

Sara said...

Very cool! Whenever I go to NY, we always jampack our day like you did. There's just so much to see and do. I'm glad you had relatively nice weather.

That sounds great, exhausting but great! The show sounds really neat. The pictures are great. You crack me up with the comment that you are not spending $100 on something not dog related! I am that way just guess I have not put it into such clear words, LOL!

Such a fast paced city and it sounds like you got lots of activities packed into your day. I'm still recovering from my NYC trip, so I feel ya on the exhausting part!

Wonderful photos! I feel like I was there and wish I was! I love NYC..have only been twice, would go again in a heartbeat if I were independently wealthy! Glad you didn't spend the $100 on a purse...save it for weave poles or something! LOL.

Great photos of the park and your daughter and the cool building. and and and..

I got to see and do lots of cool stuff. I don't blame you for packing a lot into a day, there is a ton to do! My husband and I went to NYC back in '95, but we haven't been back since then. We had a great time.
