    New York!

    November 5, 2017 in the United States

    Caught the train from Boston to NYC (hightlight was our giant cinnamon scrolls - we were the envy of the entire carriage). We arrived late afternoon and headed to Madison Square Garden (across the road from our hotel) for an NBL game - NY Knicks vs Indiana Pacers. Knicks came from behind to win 108-101! Very exciting 🏀 Apparently I am a mad sports fan now! Lauren would be proud.

    Looking for Liz Lemon

    November 6, 2017 in the United States

    New York day 2 included 30 Rock (Tina Fey must have been at lunch), Radio City, the Guggenheim, and the Empire State Building at night. We went up at around 9pm and it was amazing. Despite a rainy cloudy day, it was so clear up there but absolutely freezing!

    Empire State Building

    November 7, 2017 in the United States

    Our Hotel- Hotel Pennsylvania, is opposite Penn Station & Madison Square Garden. Also just around the corner from the Empire State Building- we decided to go to the top last night- freezing cold but amazing views of the lights of Manhattan.

    Empire State Building, New-York, USA

    August 17, 2017 in the United States

    Hier nous sommes allés à l'Empire State Building. Grâce à nos city pass, nous avons sauté 30 minutes de queue. En haut nous avons eu une vue magnifique sur toute la ville. Sur la plateforme du dessus, nous pouvions entrer dans une pièce dans laquelle il y avait des lumières au plafond qui nous suivaient : c'était grave cool.

    March 26 in the United States

    So this morning we got ourselves organized and the bags fit into the car!! Craig drove brilliantly again and the trip down seemed easier than the arrival drive. Once we got to Manhattan it was very busy but we did manage to get petrol, drop everyone off at the hotel and then drop off the car. The walk back was exciting and our Cambria Suites hotel is very central and all around us are pretty flower shops. It has turned out to be a lovely, sunny day but also very cool in the shade. We met for coffee/lunch and the Market Crate Café and then set off to find the New York pass place. Turns out the VR place is no longer valid so we walked on up to Times Square which was very exciting. We eventually found the spot near to the M&M Centre. Also purchased some caps – I had to get a child size and a cute one for William ☺ Macy’s was gorgeous with the flower display/show on currently.
    After a rest at home, which was very much needed, we walked out tonight and once again had a look at the Flat Iron building – very nice! We had a nice meal at the Belgian Beer Bar but my lemon chicken had no lemon in it!! Fun times with the family! We went up to Times square again – very bright to see lights at night time!

    9/11 Memorial and Carmine's with Aldo!

    March 29 in the United States

    Craig and I had breakfast in our room and then we all walked up to Madam Tussards to get our New York Pass bus tickets. Had to wait for ages for the bus because of a funeral of a firefighter, which had closed a number of blocks. Eventually, we made it downtown to the Wall Street area. It is very, very cold. We had a look at the Stock Exchange building and the BULL. There are always plenty of people taking photos there!! Next, we walked and found a coffee and muffin. Then we made it to the 9/11 Memorial which was absolutely spectacular. Loved seeing that. Too crowded to line up for the museum but seeing it was most worthwhile.
    More walking and eventually had lunch at another food hall type place. Very tasty sandwich!

    Getting back home took ages with the bus but we did see all along the east side. By then we were exhausted so Craig, Louise and I went to Macy’s, which was fun. Craig bought some lovely shirts (2) and also some white tee shirts. Macy’s gave us an extra 10% off on sale items. Back home for a needed rest. Tonight we took a limousine all the way out to Broadway and 90th (uptown) and… went to Carmine’s with Aldo and Helene. It was a huge Italian restaurant, with great atmosphere, pasta, salad and veal scallopini and great Cheesecake. The wine was great. It was hilarious because I believe they celebrated over 10 birthdays and every time we heard a very loud singing of Happy Birthday. Late home with taxis but a great finish to the day.

    The Met, Bloomingdales & Central Park

    March 29 in the United States

    We set off together but Craig and I left the rest to go to Penn Station to purchase our tickets to New Jersey. We then tried to get the Big Bus uptown. What a fiasco, the New York Pass has proven to be difficult to use. We waited and waited. It didn’t come to the designated stop so we asked and ended up walking for ages back to Broadway. After much wastage of time, we gave up on the Rockefeller Centre and Guggenheim and stopped at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It was crowded but really wonderful. Great French paintings – Degas, Claude Monet, some Renoirs and Van Gough’s. The American art was also amazing, especially the Singer Sergeant females. The huge Egyptian Temple in the airy room and lots of other stuff were all good for the soul. However, the cafeteria lunch was not great and a total ripoff. It was lovely to walk through Central Park afterward and even though not very green yet, it is a gorgeous, contemplative spot. We eventually made it to Bloomingdales – love that place. They let us leave our coats etc and gave us 25% off vouchers – yeh! There was a gorgeous shoe display on in the lobby and we found a lovely Karen Miller dress for me ☺ ☺ Back home exhausted so we had a rest. In the evening Craig, Josy and I set off for the Flatiron district because it has been recommended for eating. After much difficulty, we settled on a wine bar called Punch and the food was good – we shared ravioli, salmon and meatball dishes. Back home to pick up Nick and then we walked to the Empire State Building for some night shots. Crowded but lots a fun. Another great day!Read more

    Hiline and our last day!

    March 30 in the United States

    This morning Craig, Nick, Louise and Tony went downtown to the Stock Exchange. Aldo had organized a tour for them with Chris Coronetti, which they all enjoyed. Josy and I had intentions to get the Big Bus down to the area where we could do the Graffiti walk. Many crowds and in particular traffic jams prevented that once again. No kidding doing the Big Bus sucked so much!! I asked the driver to let us off anywhere when they kept trying to avoid the traffic jams. We got off at Union Square and had a Starbucks to calm the storm. We consequently decided to walk and do the Hiline – starting at the Chelsea Markets. That was huge fun – very trendy, nice food and then we popped up to the Hiline and walked quite a bit of it for about an hour. The ex-train line has been made into a walk above Manhattan – some art along the way. The weather had improved and we really enjoyed it. We eventually got off and tried to walk towards Macey’s getting a little lost (again) along the way. Macey’s was fun. We had lunch there – chicken sandwich but there was more to choose from. I purchased two long sleeved tops and a black tee-shirt with glitzy stars on it. Happy girl. Walked home and rested a little in the hotel room. Need to pack and Aldo is coming in to see us.
    As it turned out we met him at an amazing restaurant called Canaletto – apparently named after a Venetian poet – maybe!! It was the best meal we have had so far on the trip. My marinara spaghetti was delicious. Craig loved his buratta & white anchovies on sweet peppers and veal shank gnocchi. Zabaglione & berries were scrumptious too. Great night – last time we will see Aldo for a while. Amazing last day and tomorrow we move on to New Jersey with the Goldbergs. We have enjoyed staying at the Cambria suites location wise, but it has been noisy with all the building happening nearby.

    From Brooklyn to Boston

    July 2, 2017 in the United States

    1st train journey down, 4 more to go in our #jkrailing adventures across the USA. This first journey took us from New York Pennsylvania Station to Boston Back Bay on the North East Regional line. It took almost exactly 4 hours and was really beautiful especially as we were travelling in 'golden hour'. As I can only post one video and no pictures per 'footprint' I wanted to share our farewell to the NYC skyline.Read more
