New York City Anniversary Trip

20141109 newyorktripWell where do I start to describe such an awesome weekend getaway. Jean and I went away last weekend to New York City to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. We waited until now to go since of course the Rockettes don’t dance until this time of year… and any trip to New York would definitely revolve around that.

Spending time in Manhattan, and especially Times Square at night should make it to everyone’s bucket list. It really is an absolutely amazing experience. Visiting downtown Manhattan is kind of like visiting another country where you experience a bit of a culture shock getting used to people, places and grandesque atmosphere.

With just two days to experience everything we could, our days were packed and we really did see alot in a short period of time.

The highlight of the trip was getting Jean to see her life-long favorite Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall, and thanks to my awesome sister, got to meet a Rockette and go back stage, which pretty much put Jean off the deep end. I’ve never seen her so speechless and confused. Thanks sis.

It was an incredible weekend with too much to describe. But in an effort to assemble a list of memories, here’s a list of highlights.

  • Trying to drive around Mid-town
  • Grand Hyatt Hotel in downtown Manhattan
  • Lunch at the Stardust Diner
  • Seeing the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall
  • Going back stage at Radio City Music Hall
  • Visiting the Top of the Rock
  • Experiencing Times Square at Night
  • Gray Line Bus Tour (Or any hop-on-off bus)
  • Walking through China Town and “Very” Little Italy
  • Freedom Tower and 911 Memorial (Awesome)
  • Watching Jean dance on the big piano at FAO Schwartz
  • Paying $140 to park my car for 2 days
