Having a good time

On Monday Ryan and I did a whirlwind tour of NYC. In about 5 hours we hit the main sites.

  • Ferry to Staten Island and back to pass the Statue of Liberty and get a view of probably the most famous skyline in the world.
  • Wall Street
  • Ground Zero
  • Rode in a Yellow Cab
  • Rockefeller Centre - Skating rink (Well there was no skating rink yet)
  • Top of the rock to get great views of the city. Central Park, Empire State etc.
  • Maddison Square Gardens then back on the Long Island Railway from Penn Station.
I also introduced Ryan to Ellen's Stardust Diner just off Broadway. The waiters and waitresses are aspiring Broadway actors so they entertain you while you eat. They even sing when serving you, making coffee and giving you the bill. Is it the best food around no but it sure is a great experience. I took the photo above but below is a video from someone elses visit.

That is so cool! I've never heard of anything like that. I'll definitely have to look them up if I'm ever in NY.
