New York! Days Eight and Nine …

Alright. Stick it out with me, people! Just two more days! We were supposed to come home on Saturday, but we were having such a good time, we stayed an extra day! We made sure that Dave and Lindsey didn’t mind and urged them not to change their plans on account of us!!

New York! Days Six & Seven

So. Could I possibly be any lazier?! I’ve been staring at the many resized pictures on my desktop and dealing with my computer chugging away through the bog-downiness of having too many things on the desktop, but just haven’t had the “oomphf” (as Brad would say) to blog. I’ve been reading blogs and knitting. But not writing them. So today, I’m going to finish off the New York! series. Again, if you want to see more of our NYC pics, just click on the Flickr badge to the right and click on the “New York 2007” photo series!

New York! Day Five …

Day Five – Wednesday

We saw too much on this day to put it with another post. Wednesday we had a doozy of a day lined up. We were going to get up early, go to the Empire State Building, down to Ground Zero, and then up to the Guggenheim. However, as I was getting my towel to shower, Dave & Lindsey came back in – the subways were down due to an apparently large storm the night before and they weren’t going to work any time soon! So, we went and got some breakfast and hung out with them for a while. We decided we’d wait to see the Guggenheim. We left for Ground Zero later than we’d hoped (the story of the week, actually – we didn’t leave “on time” the whole week!), but had plenty of time anyways.

New York! Days Three and Four …

Phew! So our first two days in NYC are now a bit of a blur – it seems like soooooo much more than a week ago!

Let me tell you a little bit about NYC. First off, it’s big! Secondly, there’s tonnes of people! And thirdly? It’s big. If you go to this site, you’ll see a reproduction of the New York City subway map. Confused yet? The spinning thinger on the map is the station closest to where Dave and Lindsey live … at 139th & Broadway. Thankfully, the streets are at least named smart! Streets go East/West, avenues go North/South. So 42nd St and 5th Ave? Not as confusing as you’d think! To get from their apartment to Times Square (42nd St) took about 45 – 60 mins by subway. This map shows the five boroughs (Manhattan, The Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island) really well. Basically, anything you see on movies is generally Manhattan =)

New York! Days One & Two …

First off, let me say that I have had an awful time getting my pics all ready to go. Flickr apparently only lets you have 200 pics able to display, so by the time I had uploaded two days worth of pics, I was over that. So I had to go through the ones I’d already uploaded, delete lots of them and then go through the remaining pics one by one to find the best ones to display in Flickr. All that to say, click here to see my photo set of our NYC trip! Also, my photo editing program decided to disappear, so I had to figure out how to use a different one to size all my pics to a good size for the blog. BUT, we’re good to go now. Warning – this is a pretty graphic intensive post, so you might want to give it time to load … on second thought, maybe it’d be better to do a few posts with fewer pics apiece?

New York, New York, it’s a hell of a town!

Well, we depart for The Big Apple tonight at 6:30, ETA NYC at 7:10 AM on Saturday morning. The bus leaves at 8:10 PM from just down the road from us – but the lady I talked to today said to be there at least an hour early as it’s expected to be quite busy (long weekend). So, we’re leaving 1.5 hours early – we can’t afford to not get on that bus!

I’ll still have internet access (bringin’ the trusty laptop) so hopefully I can keep you all updated =)

See ya on the flip side!
