My Trip To New York! Part One

Well after waiting which seemed like forever we finally made it to New York.  We were supposed to go the beginning of February but it was postponed till May.  We had tickets for two of the three shows Barry was doing at Radio City Music Hall.  NewYork is so fascinating I would go there even if Barry wasn't performing!  Honest I would!  We stayed at the Renaissance Hotel in Times Square.  The hotel was just okay but the location was great!

First time riding the subway!
I can take it off my bucket list now!  

We went to see the Sept. 11 Memorial.  Since my Mike works for United we felt it was something we should see.  I had a lump  in my throat the whole time I was there.  So very sad!

Remember Mark Bingham and Todd Beamer...our heros in the sky.
There are two pools representing the twin towers.

Enjoy the rest of your day!  I'll be back tomorrow with more.


  1. Hi Denise!
    I miss our chats and its been quite a long time!! I hope Sophie continues to do well!

    You know that I do not fly and I always love to see the world thru your eyes and fab photos!!
    The 911 memorial pics are awe inspiring and very emotional.
    It really is hard to believe that these tragedies were 11 years ago already :-(

    I hope you and your beautiful family are happy and healthy Denise!!!
    Hugs and smiles,

  4. New York is my favorite place to visit! I loved it when I was there a couple of years back. The two pools at the World Trade Center were not complete yet. I hope to someday return again.
