Sights, Sounds, Tastes, Sensations...our NYC experience

  We were at the Belvedere Hotel, located at 319 West 48th Street, New York, NY 10036. We were very pleased with the hotel and the location was perfect for us.

After the parade on Thanksgiving we headed back to our hotel for a little rest up-thaw out time! We were all cold and hungry, having only had a bagel and one cup of coffee before the parade.

On the way back we decided to get some
street vendor hot dogs 
(known as dirty water dogs, by some folks)
and big, salty, pretzels! This was another 'must do' on my list!  :)   We took this back to our hotel and ate it for  our lunch, before heading to Central Park!

OK-It was yummy!

Exploring Central Park was an enjoyable experience for all of us, and we all wished that we had more time to spend there! It's a beautiful place with a variety of things to see and do!
~ We did take a few pictures!  :)  ~


...but there is so much more!
Hope I can visit again someday!

Ruby Tuesday~ NYC scenes in Ruby Red~ Nov 29, 2011


Here are a few shots in Ruby Red from my recent trip to the 'Big Apple!'

 I've been told how great authentic New York pizza is, and that any trip to NY must include sampling the pizza at least one time! Well... we did make a point of eating at this pizza place that was suggested to me!

OK- I have to say it was great pizza!
LOL-It was a little messy, but worth it!


We didn't have a chance for pizza again, but I think we found the best pizza in NY!

Mellow Yellow Monday~ Nov 28, 2011~ NY Mellow Yellow Shots



We returned yesterday from our much too short trip to NYC.

We had the best time ever, and did pretty much all we planned to. My daughter, Tina, is great at organizing trips. She took care of every little detail before we left home.

Tina knew exactly where everything was located that we wanted to do and see...and the distances between all the places. Also...how we would get from one place to another (by foot or subway - or a combination of both, usually) Twice we took a taxi...now THAT was a welcomed treat!  :)
We were all over that big city! My little feet  had NEVER done so much walking!

Today I will show some Mellow Yellow shots of our visit to NYC.


~we saw a lot of these~
