New York City October 6-12, 2016
to our fall 2016 trip. We started off with 6 exciting days in the
city that never sleeps. Nothing like watching a traffic jam at 2
am in Time Square. We followed this with a 10 day Canada and New
New York City
Our trip to NYC started off on a bad note.
Accidents and traffic may our trip to airport an hour and 40
minutes versus expected 30 to 40 minutes. Made flight just in
time. Landing at JFK. Taxi ride to Hotel took over an hour
period took longer to drive from JFK to Hotel then to fly from
Raleigh to JFK. Check into Marriott Marquis. A very very nice
hotel and room on 29th floor. Had lunch in the restaurant on the
8th floor where the lobby is. Floors 1 through 7 are a theater
and parking garage. Walk to Central Park. Took a 45-minute ride
with a tour guide around Central Park. Pretty much saw the
entire park. Lots of pictures. Walkthrough Broadway and so many
theaters, Radio City Music Hall, and Carnegie Hall. Had
cocktails back at the hotel. Had a wonderful Italian dinner at
Volga vector in Hell's Kitchen on 9th Avenue and 46th Street.
Walk around for a bit and came back to room to crash.
