I Recently traveled to New York and thought I’d make a small contribution to our web site. Here it is….
New York, New York by Judy Leach
Sorry, Frank Sinatra, I don’t agree that it’s such a wonderful town. Taxi rides cost an arm and a leg; and the subway is all hurry, hurry, hurry. Also did a lot of walking, walking, walking, etc. Thank goodness I had two grandsons, Dylan and Tyler, to hold on to for balance. On top of that; I had broken my foot the end of February and thought I’d leave the air-cast at home. Big mistake. My foot hurt like the devil. That’s what I get for trying to tough it out.
I did, however, enjoy visiting the World Trade Memorial. Beautifully done. Didn’t get a chance to go through the museum as the wait was about an hour, and with the bum foot, standing wasn’t an option. Also saw a performance by Cirque ‘d Soliel, “Paramour.” A song and high-flying, acrobatic play. My 10-year-old grandson, Tyler, sat next to me, and kept saying “amazing” when the performers did their stunts. I went to New York with my youngest son and his family, mainly to see my oldest granddaughter, Erin, perform in a ballet review. Her troupe did an excellent job with their modern ballet routine.
We were there four days, and I have walked enough to last me until September. All in all, the trip was costly, tiring; but enjoyable. We didn’t visit the other main attractions, i.e., Empire State Bldg., Statue of Liberty, etc., as we have all been to New York before. Now I need a few days to recoup.
As a side note, La Guardia airport doesn’t measure up to Pittsburgh airport. It’s always nice to come back home.
Webmaster’s note: Judy was walking on a broken ankle and left her boot at home. ????
