Day One! New York, New York!


We took a double decker bus...
View from, Top of  The Rock...
We saw beautiful buildings...
and beautiful churches...
Time Square...
 Time Square, not even rush hour, just a normal day...

We enjoyed street performers...
People going to work....
Taking in the sights of Time Square....
Time Square treats, sold by the pound...YIKES!
We took our beautiful grand-daughters to New York City for four days! Many long lasting memories were made.
New York is a city that I have a love hate relationship. One minute I adore the sights, smells, noise, excitement, the energy that this City exudes. The next I have had quite enough and need to find a place of rest. No pushing, no shoving people in my face kind of place. We purchased a City Pass along with a City Bus Tour Pass, but walking a great deal still a requirement. It takes a great deal of time to get from point A to point B no matter your choice of transportation.
We had an absolute blast and it was so special to have our grand-babies and special friends with us.

 I will post more pictures during the following days, hope you enjoy!

You sound like the BEST grandmom ever! I love your trip to NYC! Did you buy a pound of M&M's? Were the kids so tired at the end of the day? I am glad you were able to go on such a fun trip!

I've longed to go there, thinking it would be a wonderful place to walk around with camera in hand. I see how crowded it really is - that would frustrate me. Your shots are fabulous! My fave is the first one, love the perspective. happy week to you.

Oh my gosh...that photo of the traffic was amazing...not sure I could live there though but it was nice to visit via your photos ;)

I first saw NY at age 19 when I set off to see the world from CALIF and wound up in Israel.
I just remember LOOKING UP UP UP and my neck getting sore. The subways...LOOK at that traffic, it's amazing anyone gets anywhere in it. And the overload of sight- sense all that stimuli. I too would need a rest from it all. The art museum perhaps! ;-)
Yes, I enjoy the sharing. Brings back lots of memories for me, thanks.

This is like a foreign country to me;
I live in rural Indiana.
Wonderful photos.
If I ever do visit, I will probably feel like a total tourist
and definitely out of my element.
Thanks for the tour!

The bustle of the big city is captured well in your photos!

Looks like you are trying to get in all the sites in your short visit. I hope your trip home will be a safe one.

I love NY, was there for only 2 days to see Phantom Of The Opera. I love how the cabbys do a rolling stop and you have to get out of the cab walking...

Its an adventure and one you wont forget.

Your traffic shots really demonstrate how crowded the city is. Amazing!
