New York! New York!

Let the fun begin.  Pam and I arrived on Friday and got the lay of the land in our neighborhood.  We are renting an apartment in a row house in Ridgeway, on the border between Brooklyn and Queens.  It is lovely and big enough to spread out in.  We found a wonderful restaurant within walking distance.  Amber and M got here on Saturday but their luggage did not - grrrrr.  So we spent the day on the phone trying to track it down.  We also managed to go into Brooklyn and bought discount tickets for a  Mary Poppins matinee on Sunday.  It was fantastic.  M can now now say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!

We also visited the Empire State Building at dusk.  The sunset was so pretty.  We got the audio tour and M listened intently to all the info.

We didn't miss a chance to see Times Square all lit up at night.

We had dinner at Belle Vita.  We had a huge family style salad and the best pizza ever.  M wants to go back tonight
Sorry, I can't find a link to credit.

I am having to use stock photos from the web because the computer in the apartment is a Mac and we can't find a usb port to accommodate our camera's memory card.  But it does make me realize how easy it would be to take a virtual vacation anywhere and post photos like you were there - hmmmmm
