Taking a bite out of the Big Apple!

I had a blast this past week on a trip to New York City. It was quite a whirlwind as I stayed right in Times Square, and although I’ve been to the City many times over the years, there are still so many things I wanted to see and do!

I hit Central Park, Battery City Park, the new Tony Award-winning play “Memphis” on Broadway (this show was FANTASTIC, I highly recommend it!), and some great dinners and way too much eating!!! I┬áLOVE New York – there’s no place like it in the world, and I was tempted to ditch everything and just stay there! ­čÖé

Anyhow, here are a few pics that I wanted to share –┬ásome are taken near Battery City Park – in one you can see the Statue of Liberty way in the background – then the photo with the tall glass building is actually the site of 9/11, and that is the building that was constructed to replace the Twin Towers – the photo of the crazy looking sculpure is actually the sculpture that used to stand at the twin towers site; apparently they moved it to this new location at Battery City Park when they designed the memorial area.You can see how it is burned and damaged – it was very moving to see these sights.

I also snapped a pic of the Brooklyn Bridge and myself in Times Square right after a ridiculously giant plate of spaghetti and meatballs at a great family style Italian restaurant that was to die for! That’s New York!!! All in all, it was an amazing trip and I hope to go back in the spring!
