Day 1 in New York City


Today was our first day in New York City!! We had a flight out of Rochester at 11:45 and arrived in the city at 12:40. It was such a short flight! JetBlue is my favorite airline (I’ve only been on like 3) but they had personal TV’s on the seats with DirecTV! It was fun! We took the subway (first time for me!) to our hotel, it was about an hour from the airport- so the subway ride to our hotel was longer than our flight, crazy.
Kyle is so amazing and found our hotel for us- I was a little scared we would get lost- but there was no problems! We checked in and headed off into the city.
We found Time Square! It’s amazing. It looks just like TV… there are people EVERYWHERE and buses and taxis fill the streets… we saw all the different theaters on Broadway- we tried to find a show to watch tonight, but they were all sold out. Bummer. We found the David Letterman place… Kyle got excited about that ☺
We headed over to fifth avenue… all the shopping you could imagine. Way too expensive for me though. We found the Tiffany & Co… it’s HUGE! There were 6 stories- each level had a different type of jewelry. We went into a McDonalds to use the restroom- and it was the biggest McDonald’s I had ever seen! The bottom was huge and then there was an entire upper floor of just seating. It was amazing.
After traveling and walking around for a few hours we were pooped so we headed back to the hotel to get some rest to be up and ready for the day tomorrow of sightseeing!

That it so funny that you would say "it's just like it is on TV" I don;t know why. But it's funny! Hey, when you cross the hudson river and go to the Statue of Liberty and the other sites, you will be in my mission! It's wonderful. One day we will all have to go back east for a vacation! it's awesome!
