Another Beautiful Day

Yesterday was a memorable day, and not just for the incredible amount of traffic on the Hudson River. We came into New York Harbour, under the Verazano Bridge, past Staten Island, around Brooklyn, and right up to the foot of the Statue of Liberty. It was amazing.
We checked into the marina and headed for Central Park for a walk. We ended the evening with pollo parmigiana and linguini pescatore (delicioso!) at Copola's, then came back to Celebration to watch the lights come on.
We're staying at the 79th Street Boat Basin, on the west side of Manhattan. At $30 a night, it's the best thing going. A quick walk to the Park and subway stops, we can go anywhere from here. The view of the Upper West Side is great and the people watching, as ever, fascinating.

Lynn and Steve,

I've only been to NY City once for a training class, but had time to explore the city a fair amount as well. If you have a chance, take the ferry to Staten Island. I did not explore that area very much, but I did have a great dinner at a place called Ruddy & Dean, North Shore Steak Co. The dinner was great, and they have a terrace that has a view of Manhattan. It's within walking distance of the ferry.

Have fun!

- Mike

OMG, OMG, OMG, that's the shot, isn't it? That is j ust the best -- sailing by the Statue of Liberty. What an awesome moment. Just want to make sure you guys know about the TKTS booths (half price show tickets) at Times Sq and S Street Seaport. Hope you're having fun, but how can you not? We love NYC, that's for sure.
