Day 7: New York City 04/10/2009

Friday: New York City day! We took the Lincoln tunnel, drove into "THE" parking lot, and away we went. Professor was spending his weekend at his NYC apartment and we chose a spot to meet. He was to be our tour guide, hooray!

I can't even begin to tell you all the places we went to. I can't. I'll let the pictures tell the story for a bit.

Central Park

(Friends don't let friends talk politics. Really)

John Lennon's memorial.

The final stop was the Empire State Building. It reminded me of Disney. Why? Line, line, line, elevator, line, line, buy tickets, elevator, stairs, line, line.

We left the ESB and hailed a cab. (can anyone find me an Empire State Building patch too? I've Googled and E-Bayed to no avail).

Off to Little Italy for dinner with the Prof.

We had a great meal at La Nonna, which the Prof paid for even though we wanted to treat him for letting us stay in his Princeton place and being our tour guide that day!

We jumped on the subway to head back towards the car. We said goodbye to the Professor at his stop and headed to ours.

We spent the night again at the Princeton apartment, and got up the next morning to pack up and leave. Saturday was spent driving from 9 a.m. until about 2:45 a.m. on Sunday. Straight shot to Florida. We are nuts, yes.

We had a FANTASTIC vacation and I want to thank ALL of our friends and family (Aunt Joan & Uncle RON, Inge & the entire fun family, Niki, Barb & Batt, the Professor) who accommodated us, fed us, got us in to places and showed us fantastic things.

Looks like tons of fun. Nice to see the Prof; i haven't seen him in almost 14 years - he looks good.
