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.
I'm not sure how many blocks we walked but it was a lot! from 42nd to 60th, through the zoo to Columbus Circle, then from 14th to the Highline to 34th. I slept well that night!
