A proud city

New York has been amazing! A fascinating city with so much to see and do...we have barely scratched the surface, but our feet remind us of how much we have walked...and walked.



Finally we have the street system worked out and are navigating quite well. Every now and then we need some directions, but everyone is pleased to help...lovely people who think we talk strangely...oui!


Today we strolled 5th Avenue...went to the stunning library and Bryants park, saw a mass in St Patricks Cathedral and lit a candle for my mum. We were dazzled by the diamonds in Tiffany's, admired the fashionable shops, went to the top and bottom of the Rockefeller Centre and gazed over an overcast New York...beautiful.


I love walking the streets, hearing people talk and seeing how they live...so much fun!


We have been so impressed by the pride New Yorkers have in their city and the brave people that serve them...the police and fire departments. We had the good fortune to meet a delightful officer...here I am with one of NY's finest!

NY is a wonderful city. I'm glad you're having a great time. And just remember, it's a long flight back home, so you can sleep then.

Our son just graduated from a sound engineering school in Manhatten. He is vacationing out West for a few weeks, and then heads back to NY for work. It's nice to see your pictures and to know this is what he sees everyday.
