The hubby and i have recently returned from our first trip to NY.
We stayed at a small boutique hotel on Park Avenue.
On our first night we returned to the hotel to be greeted by champers, huge chocolate dipped strawberries and rose petals on the bed....very romantic!
Here are a few photos of some of the things we did:
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at Peanut butter and Co.
And took the free boat to Staten Island. Everything including the Statue of Liberty was sooo much smaller than i expected!!
The NY Public Library: Does anyone else recognize this pic from Sex and The City?? Or is it just me, the sad English tourist taking all the tele/film snaps!!!!
Cartier wrapped up in a bow - maybe it should have been a little less tightly wrapped as only serious shoppers were welcome.
Not nearly as many pigeons in Ny as there are in London. Infact these are the only ones we really saw!! Urgh!! i hate the dirty rats with wings!!
My Idol is Audrey Hepburn - so it was a real treat to visit Tiffanys and stand outside Holly Golightlys apartment.
We really should have skated on the first day - our feet hurt so much by the end of the trip that we found it very difficult to get around this rink.
Times Square - on our first night we went to Ellens Stardust diner - it was so much fun. The wait staff sing and they serve fantastic alcoholic milkshakes!!
Toys r us - i really wanted a go, but the wait was over an hour and we were due to leave for the airport.
Oh....and i have to say...i am very proud of myself - i am scared of lifts and heights, but i went up The Empire state building!!!!!!!! (I took CBT last year to help with a few issues - this was one of them) I was terrified, i felt sick, thought i was gonna faint, but i did it and survived to live the tale :)
