I'm in New York City, well, not quite, I'm at JFK... We've just landed after the plane had to circle over Long island due to slight rain and foggy conditions, though, this doesn't dampen my mood and it's not long before we're in a cab on our way to Row NYC. A simple, yet lovely hotel on 8th Avenue. Broadway is next door and Time Square is literally down the street. Our room 1035 gives us slight views of Time's Square and already, I have a great feeling about this holiday. Cases placed in our hotel room and with 7 hours until the day ends we decide to visit a few of the must-go places of New York City. Come with me on my New York journey and watch my dreams of visiting the place that never sleeps become a reality.
We briefly walked through Times Square and took in the crazy, and rather chaotic, atmosphere. It was day light going on evening at this point and despite taking a few snaps I thought Times Square was most beautiful glowing in the dark. We had a lot of laughs here and saw just how far people were willing to go for a few dollars - naked women with the U.S flag painted on them to a man with badly put on make up wearing a bikini (No Naked Cowboy.. what?!). Putting that aside, we walked to Grand Central terminal/station and processed some of the great films that had been filmed or based here (Madagascar and Step up 4 to name a few).
With tiredness kicking it and an extra 5 hours added to our day we didn't stay out to long. After the largest Mcnugget meal I've ever seen (10 chicken nuggets, which I only managed half of) we went back to our hotel room and slept - not before going to the Disney store and buying presents for the kids that is!
