It’s always been my mother’s dream to visit New York City. So, on a whim, me, my mom, sister, and niece packed our bags and spent 3 nights and 4 days in the city that never sleeps. We had a blast! I can’t wait to go back.
Here we are at Time Square. This place blew me away y’all!
This is the famous keyboard that Tom Hanks played “Chop Sticks” on in the movie “BIG.”
Resting at Rockefeller Center. The BIG tree was already up but not yet decorated. Bummer!
Ice-skating at Rockefeller
Here we are at the Russian Tea Room. We also had frozen hot-chocolate at Serendipity’s. And, we visited the famous bakery where the gals in the TV show “Sex and the city” buy their muffins. (Not that I watch that show, mind you.)
All dressed up for the Theatre in the Hotel lobby! We saw the Lion King. It was FAB!
We stayed at the famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel! It was, as we say in the south, FAN-CY! We ate off of real silverware. I’m not joking, y’all. And the bathroom faucets were brass–the kind you have to polish. They had a dress-code, too. No faded jeans, t-shirts, or jammies allowed in the lobby.
Each night men and women dressed in tuxes and evening-gowns strolled through the hotel on their way to one of the many ballrooms. El-E-GANT!
We didn’t attend such parties but we did live like royalty! When we arrived at the Hotel, we discovered that out reservations were messed up–royally! At first, we feared that we wouldn’t be able to all be together. But, the Hotel was very generous. For our trouble, they upgraded us to a suite! We had a large living room, two bedrooms and two baths! You might say we arrived as paupers but were treated like Queens. It kind of reminded me of how heaven will be. (smiles)
Here we are in our bathrobes resting after a long day of site-seeing!
In 3 and a half days, we saw “the” Macy’s, Bloomingdales, the Impire State building (which i wanted to spit off of), ground zero, the staute of Liberty, beautiful buildings and churches, and ate some wonderful food! New York is a must see city. I hope to return one day.
