So this weekend I got to party hard with two super cool people… my grandparents. Yeah… be jealous.
They came to New York at the end of a Northeast bus tour (coincidentally, they had already planned the trip before I knew I was moving to New York!) So with Grandpa Steve having never been to New York and Grandmary having not visited in 35 years, we had a lot to accomplish in two days!
Kind of funny I was their tour guide! I think I got around pretty well. Thank god for smart phones and Yelp though!
First we went to NBC studios. My grandma had to see where Today was filmed! (I didn’t mind in the slightest!)
Then we went to the Top of the Rock! We were lucky enough to be there at sunset and get some beautiful photos!
Then after a lovely little dinner and adventure in Little Italy, we headed to Times Square where I got the best picture of my grandma ever-
Today we got up bright and early. After a nice breakfast we headed down towards South Ferry
And hopped on a boat to visit Lady Liberty, Ellis Island, and other views
And then we ended the day wandering Central Park, seeing Lincoln Center and running into this little memorial outside of the flagship Apple Store.
And finally, my shining moment was realizing it was John Lennon’s birthday and we were only a few blocks from Strawberry Fields. So we HAD to go!! I knew there would be something going on. And there was….
Such a great visit with the two of them! Loved playing tour guide and tourist at the same time! See you at X-mas you two!
Enjoy Grandmary’s rendition and the harmonies…
