NYC…

June 28, 2014

I am going to spend the next few Saturday posts reporting on my recent trip to New York City. It was an enlightening time for me. I learned some things about myself that I didn’t appreciate before.

When we lived in central New Jersey at the end of the last millennium my wife fell in love with Central Park. She has talked about it many times in the almost 15 years since she was last there. She is getting somewhat physically restricted so it was now or never if we were going to re-visit that city.  It is about the only thing in her bucket list so I was determined to make it happen.

We spent two days traveling from our home to there. Knowing that NYC traffic is impossible we took a train in from central New Jersey to Penn Station. It was a two hour trip that we have taken several times. We stayed three days at the DoubleTree Suites looking down from 38 stories onto Times Square.

Now that I have set up the scene for the next few posts it is time to do a gallery of pictures. More words and thoughts next Saturday. More pictures and stories next week. Click on any picture to see an expanded gallery…

    I do enjoy New York. I need to return to the museums. Never been to Central Park, so it is now on my list. Great pictures RJ. Thanks for sharing!

      I’m going to do three or four Saturday posts on my NYC trip. I think you will enjoy them. I added a picture here out in front of the World Diamond Tower. It was Friday late afternoon and I was surprised to see about twenty armored trucks lined up. I guess they move all their diamonds to a secure location for the weekend. New York sure is a strange place 🙂
