Another day trip to New York. Always a lot of fun and a lot of walking. You cannot beat the Groupon $33 round trip price. Our driver just flies up the highway. Went thru the Holland Tunnel and got off at 8th and 45th. Went to the City Kitchen then headed over to the subway.
Nice day and lots of people. We ate at Shake Shack, went to Muji and just hung out until it was time to head home.
Did the Groupon Tour Bus to NYC the other day. Really nice trip and for $32 round trip, you couldn’t beat the price. Left the Carney Park and Ride at 7:26am and was parked in NY at 10:25am. Had to be back to the bus by 6:30pm. Nice long day of sight-seeing. It has been close to 30 years since I have been there. Back then it was smelly and dirty and I saw someone get robbed right outside of Penn Station…
First stop, Times Square.
St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
Inside the church.
Past Rockefeller Center and thru some back streets to this guy made of Coach bags. I was waiting for the girl to start singing… “Mothra…”
The first Trump property we saw. Armed Tactical Police outside with dogs. Secret Service inside with scanners. Looking down from the top of the waterfall.
From walking around mid-town to Central Park. Not sure what was going on with the woman in the pink top, to the left. It looks like her transporter malfunctioned.
Nice zoo in the park.
Model yacht sailing on one of the lakes.
Was goiing to ask Alice something, but she seemed pre-occupied knocking this little kid off her toadstool…
To the oblisk.
Then to Belvedere castle.
View of the turtle pond with many of them basking in the sun, along with the egret.
Across the pond to the Grand Lawn.
We were supposed to go to the Natural History Museum, instead, we were enjoying just seeing the sites, we kept on going…The Dakota.
Which then took us back to Central Park and Imagine.
Lots of people trying to pay their respects. This was the only rowdy scene all day. Some rickshaw driver started cussing out tourist as he was hogging up the photo-op for his passengers. Surrealistic.
Another Trump Property, for the man who would be king and have this in his hands.
This was pretty neat – a wall of plants, just barely hanging on by their roots.
And of course, a bunch of water towers.
