Ah, trip number 6. New york, New York. By far the best trip yet. I stayed in a fancy hotel called The Roosevelt (Yep the same one where the Jennifer Lopez movie, Maid in Manhattan was filmed. This place was downtown Manhatten and pretty close to Grand Central Station.The biggest thing I noticed about NYC is everyone is always going! Well, at least everyone downtown. My days were busy but was able to walk around at night and see alot. In addition to the Grand Central Station, I was within walking distance of Times Square, Rockefeller Center as well as other places and things you would only see on TV or in the movies.
Shelly came out over the weekend so we enjoys seeing some of the sites together. We stayed over St. Patricks weekend so there was the big parade just a few blocks away. We went to see that but man that was long! We watched for a few hours and called it quits.We went to see some friends of mine play down there as well for St. Patricks Day. The Wild Colonial Bhoys played at a pub called The Parlour a few nights so we made it a point to go there and see them; By the second day, we were taking the subways all around. I must say the subway system is really cool. I wish our lovely state would have such a transit system...
Overall this trip was very cool, just because I got to see alot of thems and spend the weekend with my wife. We went everywhere from Ground Zero to the Statue of Liberty, and from Chinatown to Little Italy. Check out some of the pics from my trip below, because I only have a few more trips to make!
