It's a nice place to visit, but I.............

We went to visit Emily for a few days in NYC. We had a great time and Emily treated us very very well. We visited Wall St. The Battery, Ground Zero, and Central Park, and W.A.O. Schwartz,Bryant Park, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central, and we walked, walked, walked from 23rd and 8th to 3rd avenue and then downtown to Bleeker Street! Through Little Italy, Soho, and finally Tribeca. Then I took the train to our hotel and Em and Beverly went on back uptown to the Times Square/Theater District. Bev worked a blister on her foot she walked so much in her new boots. One small interesting note for dog lovers.......Patchie learned how to tinkle in a plant area about 2 feet square because of the scarcity of grass .....

Some small changes I noticed. Subway rides cost 25 cents when I lived in N.Y. versus the current two dollars. A pizza slice was 25 cents with a small coke back then and its $4 a slice now. A cheap bottle of vino was about $4 then -it's $25 now for Gallo. As Dylan said, "The times they are a-Changin'".

Here are some pictures and videos.

Like Gene Kelly, just a-walkin' in the rain..




Now here's some video of what went on today.........

First is Bryant Park Pond where lots of people were skating.


Here Bev was explaining to Emily what we had done before we met her at work. We are in a soup joint and I asked Bev to repeat what she said to Em......





This is Ground Zero and you can hear the jack-hammer which is non-stop from 0600 to 1130 p.m. The place is still a haunting area and looks like a disaster area still after more than 6 years......
