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
