New York New York
In October I went to New York City to visit my son, Richard. I had the most fabulous time and fell in love with the Big Apple. My son lives on the Lower East Side (photo on the right) and this was my favourite place, I loved the architecture especially the tenement buildings, the many different eating places - I will never forget my pastrami on rye at Katz's (famous from When Harry met Sally) where I finally got to have a kosher pickle.
One of the places I wanted to visit was the Brooklyn Bridge and here I am, very excited, standing on the Brooklyn Bridge - it was awesome. I got to visit Bloomingdales, stand on the viewing platform of the Rockefeller Centre, see the Financial District (where my son worked), have a hot dog with the works from a street side vendor, visit New Jersey on the PATH train, visit Queens, have a fantastic Italian meal in Brooklyn and Little Italy, and visit the Metropolitan Museum and Central Park.
A visit to Liberty Island and The Statue of Liberty was the highlight of my trip. Here is my son Richard in front of that fabulous Lady. What can I say but that it took my breath away. I will never forget my fabulous trip, the people I met, the sights I saw and that New York really is the city that never sleeps.
