New York is Where I’d Rather Be!

Not really but that song from Green Acres runs thur my mind =) We stayed in China Town which wasn’t bad
but next year we are renting an apartment in either Shoo or on Orchard Street. We had a great time, we
always do shopping and sightseeing and walking, the only time we got a taxi is when we got there and when
we were going home.

Here are some photos I took while there I also have a couple on instagram

1st day in NYC!

I thought I got more pictures of the apartment, I must not have, you can see the bedroom from
this photo, most of the furniture was from Ikea. In the bedroom were two closets from Ikea that
had frosted glass on the doors, I loved them! I wished I would have got a picture of them.

China town is mostly all Chinese, most that we encountered couldn’t speak English!

Oh, the hotdogs on the streets of NYC are so good and only $2.00!

We shopped and stopped in the boutiques, this one below is a vintage one, I saw a lot of 70’s clothes and
they were expensive.

I loved this one below, if I lived there I think I would
have did the same as she did. The door is fantastic!

This is the Washington Park, I think, they had a couple musicians playing there.

Further into the park they had jumping rope contest, I could never jump that fast!

Here was the best thing of all to me,

A bookstore, sort of like on You Got Mail! I could have stayed in there
all day long, it was so neat and much bigger than this pic shows!

This is what NYC kids do, they swim in the fountains!

Of course I could have taken a lot more pictures but I just had my
iPhone with me and got tired of taking it in and out of my handbag and juggling
packages too!
If you ever get a chance to visit NYC do so, I’ve been there four times
and I still haven’t seen everything that the city has to offer. We opted out of
seeing the 911 museum I just didn’t know if I could handle it…maybe next time!

I can feel your excitement and that made looking at your pictures all the more better!! How neat! I love everything you saw...the shops and food and fountains...just the things we "out of towners" like to see!! I've only been once and it was just Central Park and the Empire State Building...the usual. I would love to see the normal things you did !!

It looks like you had an awesome trip. Both of my girls have been to New York on school trips, but I have never been there. Love the old pretty!!

Brandi said...

Glad you had a nice time in the city. I love NYC. I'm from NJ so I used to go there a lot when I was younger. When my husband and I got married we went there few times for talk show tapings. Thanks for sharing your trip.

Gina said...

Looks like you enjoyed the city! No matter how many times I've been, the first time being in high school, I still haven't seen everything the city has to offer! My daughter & I love it! We were there in April & are hoping to go back in the Fall.

I absolutely love NYC. You could go into a new store everyday for how long??? So much to see and do. I stayed in a hotel about 1/2 block from times square. So much weirdness there and they were basically all tourist.LOL. Oh baby that is high rent. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

I really enjoyed seeing your pics of NYC. I've never been so it was all so interesting to me. Loved the brownstones pics and just general sights around there.

How exciting to visit such a city as New York!! You took some awesome pictures, Rondell!
I've never been there, but would love to visit some day.
