I've just returned from a work trip to New York.
I usually stay near Grand Central, right across the street is Pershing Square Restaurant. I will not admit how many times I eaten there. Its convenient, beautiful, the food is always good and its quiet. Not being a foodie I don't need to try all the fancy places in town.
I always try to take a little time off while there to look around. This year my friend Deb and I went to Roosevelt Island via the tram. It was a fun ride over the river. The tram parallels the Queensboro Bridge, which is a beautiful structure.
An artist we both know has just moved there, it's like a bedroom community to Manhattan, very quiet.
Then we walked up to the Central Park Zoo. As many times as I've been in NYC I have never been in Central Park. It was beautiful.
My niece is in charge of birds at the Toledo zoo. She visited a few months ago, along with 2 co-workers. One of them used to work at the zoo so I promised I would visit. I really enjoyed the penguins and other large birds.
The flowers were beautiful and we got to hear and watch the clock.
