A little vacation

Hi everyone, hope everyone had a nice 4th.  Ours was very laid back, we stayed home!!!  But, we had a little vacation the last of June.  Our daughter lives near Allentown, PA and we went over there.  She took us into New York via New Jersey!!!!  Our first stop was the Statue of Liberty.  We didn't go on the island, but was behind it....no crowds there!!!!

And the skyline from somewhere!!!!

Then we went a parked the car and got on a subway that brought us out at the World Trade Center.  They are building a museum in that area.
We got another subway uptown.  Saw Times Square, Empire State Bldg. Radio City Music Hall.  We walked and walked.  Didn't do any shopping there other than a souvenier.  I collect bells where I have been so pickd up a bell.  Oh, we ate lunch at a McDonalds.  Narrow buildings....you go in and order.  When you get your order you go upstairs to find someplace to sit and that area is not very big and if you don't find a seat there, go upstairs again!!!!.  Luckily, they have a very big ledge at the window and my daughter plopped down there and that's where we ate on the second floor.  Don't know how many floors there were.    But it was great, you could look down below at the sea of yellow taxicabs that honked the whole day and all the people rushing here and there.
My husband like a place in Johnstown called Coney Island that is famous for their hotdogs.  We stumbled upon Nathan's, so he had to try their hotdogs.  He get sauce and onions on his so that's what he ordered.  But their sauce contains beans and he doesn't like beans in his sauce.  Coney Island is still #1 for his hotdogs!!!!

Hope you like visiting New York too!!!!  I would like to go back and go to Ellis Island.



  1. I love NYC, haven't been for a few years and would love to go back. Glad you got the chance to see it. Never have ridden the subway, we have either taken the bus in or driven. Driving gets a little hairy though!
    Great way to spend the holiday!


  2. Have only flown into NYC. I've always wanted to go there and see the very sights you saw. It's on my "bucket list"! Sounds like you had a great time! ~~Annie
