Back from the big city

We had a great time. There's something about New York City that I just can't get enough of. I've come to think that it's because it's so incredibly different from the place that I live. Opposites attract. And Southern Louisiana and NYC, they couldn't get much more opposite.

I love the business (busy-ness).
I love the tall buildings.
I love not needing a car.
I love the variety. Food. Shopping. Cultures. All of it.
I love the people. I met some great people there.
I love NYC. Bike-carriage ride uptown near Central Park.
WTC memorial plaque
Shoe shopping near Wall Street. Statue of Liberty from ferry.

Boardwalk at Coney Island.

Brooklyn Bridge - we walked across! (well, half-way)
Times Square
Near Rockefeller Center (and Radio City Music Hall)
On the WET double-decker bus tour.
Near an entrance to Central Park

Actually, NYC has no culture. It has other peoples cultures from other places. Your home in Louisiania has much more culture than NYC ever will.

I LOVE New York too. Darnit!! We'll be so close in only 6 days. Just 6 days and we could have taken the train in to meet you all!!

Glad you had a great trip. I love the wet double-decker bus pic. I love riding in the rain. Since my new camera isn't water sealed I doubt I'll get any of those shots in the future. :(

I love New York City and so do my kids! My husband went to college at Columbia so he knows how to do the subway and where everything is - which was a perfect match for a scaredy cat from Oklahoma!

Looks like you guys had a great time!

I'm planing a trip like this with my 4-year old in October. I think mother-daughter trips are the best! Hey, not always *easy* but good for bonding and re-connecting, yes.
