New York City

Last week, my sister and I went to New York City for a few days.  She had been several times before, but I had never been and needed someone to show me the ropes.  We had a great time.  We saw a couple of shows, Mary Poppins and Billy Elliot -- both were excellent!, made a stab at mastering the subways, and ate at lots of really good restaurants including Mesa Grill, which is Bobby Flay's place.  We also did a little shopping, checked out the World Trade Center, and found a few yarn stores.

This is the little church across the street from the WTC.  The sanctuary was filled with cots for the rescue workers after the towers collapsed. 

This was our pizza from the original Lombardi's in the Italian section of the city.

This was the view from our carriage ride through Central Park.

And an afternoon snack from Serendipity's.  Yummmmmy!

We waved to the Statue of Liberty from Battery Park. (She waved back.)

I think we walked at least 500 miles.
