Now with 36 hours total in the City, I had made a short list of things I wanted to see: Times Square, Central Park, The Empire State Building, The 9/11 memorial. I didn't have expectations to even get to them all, I was just happy that we were actually going and anything we saw or did would be a bonus.
But let me tell you... I was blown away by all the things we were able to see and do in such a short time period! It was the most perfect 36 hour newbie-to- New-York-trip I could have asked for.
It was a perfectly sunny, and WARM start in Times Square. I say warm..but I mean warm for two kids living up in arctic Boston-it was actually about 45 degrees and it pretty much felt like we were on a tropical vacation!
|Times Square, we made it!|
|Brandon and I were bummed this was the only day with no Phantom of the Opera show... one of our all time favorites.|
|Olive Garden in the Square..fancy!|
|He loves it|

|NY Public Library (doin some iPad book readin')|
|CRAZY.. just bumped into Brandon's friends from college in LA walking on the HiLine.. it truly is a small world!|
A quick run down of what we were able to see:
-Museum of Natural History (well...just the lobby because it was closing, but still notable!)

Let's go back in the spring!!!
