Catacombs, Tombs and Souls

Exploring the history in New York has become a major pastime for us.  There is something about walking through structures 200 years old, hearing the tales of the past, and imagining ourselves living in another century.   On this day we decided to visit St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral.   We had heard of the catacombs and...

The High Seas of New York City

Ahoy, Mate!  Climb aboard.  The Navy is ready to set sail!  Well, not set sail….start paddling…..and it’s not the Navy….it’s me and JAM and our friend Laurie. New York City does an outstanding job providing for its citizens and one of the many things provided is kayaking in the Hudson River.  It’s free, it’s fun,... Continue Reading →

A Nice Touch

I woke early this morning, just in time to see the Norweigan Escape pulling into the pier.   From our little perch 23 stories above the streets, we keep our eye on our city.   On the streets below, we see the yellow cabs and the black cars delivering New Yorkers to their destinations about...

We didn't actually see any of the contestants, so we ate some hotdogs ourselves, just to join in... Continue Reading →

What is it about the night that makes the world look so different?  Walking at night is one of the things I love most about New York. As sunset fades deep in the City, new life is breathed into the streets as mammoth digital billboards light the streets with colored air and flicker sponsored ads... Continue Reading →

Saturday, we went to see The Alice In Wonderland Follies, choreographed by Keith Michaels, who we have had the pleasure to meet on a couple... Continue Reading →

A Crown Jewel

We love Central Park.  It’s one our favorite places to go to just enjoy the day. Doesn’t matter what the weather is.  In the winter under a blanket of snow, we lay down in the Sheep Meadow and make snow angels.  In the spring, we walk through the Ramble catching the flora come to a...

The Skinny on Slenders

Nothing in New York City is accomplished without much debate. Whether it is rent control, garbage pickup, halting the subways to perform maintenance or changing the skyline, New Yorkers have a lot to say on the subject. Lately I have been interested in the discussion on “skinnies”, or more properly, Super Slenders. It isn’t that... Continue Reading →
