Last Stop NYC

Since we didn’t have a place to call “home” any longer in DC, we decided to spend our last weekend in the states in NYC.  What a fantastic city!

We had a blast.  It’s too bad we didn’t make more trips up there while we were on the East Coast, but we’ll be back often I’m sure.

We stayed in the perfect location – Midtown – thank you Shanny.  Since we had our nanny join us we got a suite at the Hilton.  Thanks to Scott’s frequent traveling in his last job he earned a fantastic room with views of Central Park on one end and the Empire State Building on the other end.

Besides pretty awesome views the place itself was huge! I mean, who needs a dinning room in their hotel room?! Needless to say, we loved it!

We had the best tour guides around – Laurane and Mike, thank you!

We saw way more than we expected in a matter of days.  From Grand Central Station, Broadway, World Trade Center Memorial, The Brooklyn Bridge, Chelsea Market, Meat Packing District, West Village – amazing city!


My favorites: Wicked, Central Park and dinner at One if by Land, Two if By Sea, and FAO.

Overall it was a magical weekend.  Great way to spend our 6th wedding anniversary (ok it was a week late, but we were moving out of our house on our real anniversary) and a wonderful introduction to the craziness that comes with living in a big city.  The NYC cabbies have nothing on the Naples chaos… can you imagine!?!
