While there, I took over 1200 pictures. Having just gotten back on Monday, I haven't had time to go through all of them.
To be honest, trying to talk about all of the things we did would take a very long time and as I look through the photos it all seems very overwhelming. Like taking on a HUGE scrapbook project and not really knowing where to start. Do I put it together chronologically, or just show the "main sights"?
So today I will pick out a few of my favorites to share with you. They are in no particular order but I just wanted to give everyone a glimpse at the city.
|This is what a typical side-street neighborhood or residential street looked like near our Hotel Beacon. The brick houses and apartments had much character with stone carvings and wrought iron fencing and stairways.|
|I think this was Washington Square Park. It felt like a very "artsy" park where street musicians played. Some people were dancing, or reading. Some were just mingling with friends.|
|The view from the Top of the Rock|
|Beautiful jewels from Tiffany and Co. This headband is from the movie The Great Gatsby.|
|The view from the Staten Island Ferry|
|There were flowers blooming everywhere!|
That will have to be all for today. A few more to come!! Until then, have a great day!
