Happy 2017

Hi there - wishing you all a very Happy Healthy New Year - a couple of thoughts in my head are that I will finish any unfinished projects in my crafting basket and not to start any more, so that there are not a dozen or so on the go at once.  I wonder if that will happen.

Hubby had his birthday at the end of November and off we went to New York, oh my goodness what an awesome time we had there.  So much to do and so much to see and we had the best time ever. 

Off we set on a very frosty cold morning from Ryde Pier head

Plane arriving back at Heathrow Airport
Off to Terminal 3 for check in and to get on our way
Our hotel on 39th Street which was a two minute walk from Broadway
We had tickets to watch Aladdin at the Amsterdam Theatre
just off Time Square, so off we went to find out where it was. 
Wow - what a fabulous show that was.
The theatre was next door to McDonald's - American style!
Walking on up 42nd St there is this lovely marble statue that was donated
by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to note the
Year of Italian Culture in the U.S in 2013
Then you come to Central Station
So of course, in you go
Into the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Foyer
On through these doors
Wow look inside and you have this
It's a Railway Station
Up the escalators to the East Balcony and
New York's - Apple Store
Looking down from the balcony
Wow - what a place

Open air ice rink set up in Bryant Park, 42nd St / Fifth Ave
The Chrysler Building skyscraper slotted in on the
East side of Midtown Manhattan of the Art Deco era
That is day one and needless to say there was no knitting or crocheting going on
Thanks for popping by and I hope you will come back to see more of our trip to
New York
