Ongoing Journey in NYC

Welcome to Day 2 of my NYC adventure!!! Well this was my last day with Jenny and she let me sleep in, woohoo!!! So in the afternoon we went and checked into my hotel and then went to do some final site seeing together.

But first Jenny insisted on taking some unpacking and "the room before the invasion pictures" pictures!

We then walked a few blocks to visit Saint Patrick's Cathedral, one word... gorgeous!

After the cathedral, we walked across the street to the Rockefeller Center. Jenny has a friend who works the "Top of the Rock" tours, and she was able to hook us up with passes and audio tours. This was probably the neatest thing I've done thus far!

The Top of the Rock tour takes you up 67 floors to an open-air roof top with spectacular views! Jenny has been to the Empire State Building and says that the Top of the Rock offers better views just because you are able to see the Empire State Building and you get a better view of Central Park (from the Empire, Rockefeller blocks this view). It was an amazing experience, and I couldn't be more pleased to have had the pleasure to do it with Jenny!

These last two pictures are of the views from the Top of the Rock. In the picture of Central Park there are many interesting sites visable, including Yankee's Stadium. The bottom picture shows an incredible view of the Empire State Building and on the right-hand side near the middle of the picture, there is a little "speck" in the middle of a river... that is the Statue of Liberty!

If you're going to New York City, there are a number of sites out there that offer internet only rates for New York tours and attractions but New York Trusted Tours and Attractions offers some REALLY good discount ticket rates. There address is www.trustedtours.com. Also, check out their Top of the Rock ticket rate... I think it is the best one available on the net.
