The Bronx is Up and the Battery's Down

These are some of the pictures I took in New York City. Some of the *many* places we visited were Central Park, Times Square, Macy's in Herald Square, the Paley Center for Media and . . . a place no former English major could ever pass up . . . the Algonquin Hotel, home of the famed Round Table of Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley and Alexander Woollcott.

We also got pretty proficient at riding the subway. If I had been thinking, I could have taken a picture of the huge rat that ran across the platform in front of us . . . New York, New York! A wonderful town!

It was such a wonderful day . . . I wish the pictures could convey the joy . . . and the exhaustion. We were all over the place! And there's so much more to see!

OMG - so funny I just went to NYC myself, two weekends ago. It was a ton of fun!

I think the joy of NYC, for me anyway, is that it is a great place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there.

ps - I finally got proficient on the subway as well, yay!
