New York City!

Very, very soon, we will begin the long drive to New York City. This will be my third trip to the Big Apple, but it will be Honey’s first time to experience the sights, sounds, and smells (covers nose) of what just might be the greatest city on earth.

The last time I was in New York was when 9/11 happened, so I will admit to having just a bit of anxiety. We plan to visit the 9/11 Memorial while we are there, which I expect to be a very moving experience.

Other plans include seeing Wicked on Broadway, visiting the observatory at the top of Rockefeller Center, and taking the ferry out to the Statue of Liberty. I have never seen Central Park in real life, so that will be a must. I also have a list of skyscrapers (finished and under construction) that I have to see, but One World Trade Center is at the top of the list! Can’t wait!!

  1. Oh you’ll love Central Park! I’ve been in New York twice; the first time in 1989 when I was thirteen, we spent three days in the Big Apple and had a great view from the top of the WTC… *shiver*
    My next visit was in 2002 together with my husband. I remember being practically paralyzed when I arrived at Ground Zero. It was so HUGE, and I felt overwhelmed by my emotions and memories. I took lots of pictures…
    Have you heard about the Big Apple Greeters? We had a great time with a sweet old guy who showed us his personal NY highlights.
    How long are you going to stay?

    1. I have heard great things about the greeters, so we might get in touch with them after arriving. We will stay for four nights. Can’t wait!
