Having a Blast!

BRRRR! It is so cold now! The cold front that swept across the country came through here Wed night and left yesterday's temps in the very low 40's. It really wasn't bad during the day except on the ferry over to Liberty Island and then once the sun set. (When we were up on top of the Rock Center obs. deck I thought I was going to die!!!) Anyway, we're having a blast and there were too many times to count yesterday that we started laughing so hard we started crying. We saw Lady Liberty, Ground Zero, Wall Street, Brooklyn Bridge, Chinatown, Little Italy (beautiful!!), Soho & Tribeca, revisted Times Square (during the middle of a bomb threat - too cool! I had a ton of those at my high school growing up so it's no biggie & was a great photo opp), & Rockefeller Center/Rock Center Obs Deck. We were EXHAUSTED when we got back to our room last night. If we walked 500 miles in Philly we walked 5,000 yesterday but thank goodness for subways or that would be 50,000! Today we're going to go back to Soho for a little more shopping, Museum of Modern Art, Empire State Build, Chrysler Building, back to Rock Center, Central Park & who knows what else! Have a great day!!

Today's dessert pic is brought to you from little Italy. Tiramasu is my FAVE and this is THE best I've ever had.

sounds like an amazing day! i haven't even been to half the places you listed there! can't wait to see all your pictures organized into those awesome collections you have for your other trips.

i was in the hospital (working) last night, so i haven't been outdoors in about 30 hours. the heavy coats that everybody was wearing this morning were pretty depressing. if only they could move NYC down to Florida...

enjoy the rest of your trip.

I love the dessert pics - people after my own heart!!! I think one day I will have to vist the US - you make it so interesting and the photos are great. Any you're right - Bloggers are not nerds (well not the ones I know anyway!) and runners are really nice people!!!!
