Hello! I know it’s been a while. Life has been busy but good. I’ve been contemplating bringing my blogging era to a close. It’s mainly been a hobby for me. I’m by nature a very private person and there are times when I just don’t want to share my thoughts, feelings and life adventures. I’m just being honest. On the other hand, there’s a part of me that still has the desire but not the time. While I’m deciding, I thought I’d share our spring break photos from our trip to New York before summer vacation is here.
We bought the city pass which included 8 major attractions around the city. You choose 6 out of 8 of the best attractions in NYC. It was a great value at $114 for adults and $89 for kids ages 6-17. Check out the website at citypass.com. We are big fans of the City Pass and we usually take advantage of it when visiting major cities if it is offered.
Here are a few snap shots of our trip. We had a great time and most of all, we made some great memories. Family from Philadelphia came to visit with us on two different days which made the trip even more special.
The first stop was the Museum of Metropolitan Art. This was a very busy place. There were several food vendors outside and boy did it smell good. I love the diversity of New York. There were several people around us speaking different languages.
The museum is a beautiful building.
The subway was our primary mode of transportation along with walking. We averaged 4-5 miles a day walking. I have no clue how to work this machine. Fortunately, my husband handled this. I was oblivious but it can’t be that hard.
We visited the 911 monument and museum. It was a very emotional experience.
I love Central Park. The open space, green grass and beautiful blue skies in the midst of the hustle and bustle was quite refreshing.
My eleven-year-old still likes to play in the dirt. Does he have to grow up?
They found climbing the rocks in the park to be very entertaining.
We made the trek to Harlem to enjoy some good ole southern cuisine at Amy Ruths. We were so full. It was worth the trip. It’s a good thing we did a lot of walking.
Times Square is so busy, never a dull moment.
We enjoyed a boat cruise on our last day. This is the Brooklyn Bridge. It drizzled and was a bit foggy but still interesting.
This is the view from the Empire State Building It was a tad bit foggy.
This is the view from the top of Rockefeller Center at night. Breathtaking….
Peace and Blessings,
