Back after a long Mother’s Day Weekend and 2 day retreat from NYC.
Immediately back to the resolutions. After the ride home I laced up my running shoes for a jog. Then spent the afternoon working outside.
On to the trip.
I don’t take vacations like a normal person. Laying on a beach or sitting at a bar on a resort doesn’t appeal to me. So when I pulled in to the overpriced parking garage on Monday at 330 in my own typical fashion I intended on cramming as much site seeing as I could in the next 36 hours.
I’ve done all the typical, expensive Tourist Attractions…some more than once. Empire State Building, The MET, Top of the Rock, seen where they made SNL and the Jimmy Fallon Show, Radio City Music Hall, all those things. Side Note. If you are visiting NYC looking to see the sites. I suggest getting the CITY PASS. Lots of options for the most bang for the buck.
I don’t overly plan these trips. They are too unpredictable with travel times and wait times. Besides a rough outline, we just wing it.
New Spot for me here on the far east side of Manhattan. Chelsea Piers
Next two pictures are off Pier 54. This ruin down piece of real – estate was where the Titanic was set to dock before it sunk in the Atlantic.
One World Trade Center in the Distant there. You never realize how big Manhattan, let alone NY is until you have walked it.
Of course it would be under rehabilitation But if you can see behind the drapes that is Ghostbuster’s Firehouse used in the films
Original Chinatown Ice Cream Factory – Try the Mango
Politics are all around us.
5th Avenue Building
Grabbed a burger, cheese fries, and chocolate shake from Danny Meyer’s wildly popular SHAKE SHACK in Madison Park
Empire State Building
“The Falling Man” – is he climbing or falling? Is it a nod to the 9/11 Falling Man?
The High Line at Night
“The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues.”
