I heart NY - Days 3 and 4

I spent days 3 and 4 of my Beantown Adventure in NYC - the big apple! Here are a few of the highlights: I got emotional at the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island...


I saw Spiderman and street performers in Battery Park.

I snapped photos of Michael Moore as he was shooting a fim on Wall Street.



I took a stroll down Wall Street, stood in front of the New York Stock Exchange and took the Bull by the Horns.

I ate REAL NY pizza and authentic Gelato. I toured an italian market and bought authentic italian gnocchi. I grilled a FOOD NETWORK CHEF (!!! in depth!!!) at Chelsea Market.

I experienced a NY taxi. I rode the Subway and inhaled (on accident) the intense smell of stale urine warmed by the underground rails. I got emotional seeing a crazy lady and a homeless man.
I went to the top of the Rock(efeller) center. I saw the ice skating pond. I saw Wicked on Broadway. I ate sushi at at Ruby Foo's. I bought 8 I heart NY t-shirts.

I experienced the streets of Times Square at night. I went inside the large Toy's R Us store. I saw where TRL is taped. I bought cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery (Oprah's fave).

I walked around the WTC site. I bought clothes in a NY department store.

I fell in bed, exhausted, from all the wonderful, wonderful excitement of NY. I think I do heart NY!

I LOVE NEW YORK.... I would love to live there, it just isn't real kid friendly. When I was there I saw about 2 feet of grass other than the park. And we all know that I probably would live by the park... Holy money... Anyway. I would love to go back, we are toying with the idea of going to New York again instead of a cruise for our 10 year anniversary... I love it so much...

I am so jealous. I love New York. We want to go see the new Yankees Stadium so bad, and the old one before they tear it down. I am glad you are having so much fun, and good foos.

I am so jealous! I have never been there and I want to go so bad. I am like you, I would cram it all in and see all I could!
